The Loose Women panel became very awkward, after Taylor Swift was brought up in a recent conversation.

There was a time where you would think it was strange to hear the names Denise Welch and Taylor Swift in the same sentence, but now the pair appear to be in the middle of a feud. 

Following Swift’s split from Welch’s eldest son Matty Healy, who she shares with fellow Tyneside actor Tim Healy, Denise has taken a swipe at the global superstar after she called her son “small”.

Swift and Healy, who is the frontman for pop rock band The 1975 reportedly had a brief romantic relationship last year, before calling it quits after only a few months together. 

Swift has recently released her eleventh studio album The Tortured Poets Department, and fans have been speculating that certain song lyrics could be referencing Healy and their former romance. 

One of the new tracks, named The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived as well as another named Fortnight, are all believed to be written about 35-year-old Healy.

On the show, fellow panellist Nadia Sawalha brings up Swift’s new album, directing the comment towards Welch, who replies: “I wasn’t aware she had an album out at all.”

Dermot O’Leary who was a guest on the show, to chat about his new book, said: “Why has this really nice chat went really awkward? I’m literally in the middle of it.”

Denise laughed in response, as she replied: “Anyways, I wish her all the best.”
