Kaye Adams presented Wednesday’s Loose Women and was joined by Linda Robson, Brenda Edwards and Janet Street-Porter. The ITV presenters discussed the rising numbers of migrants entering the UK and whether they should be given asylum. However, the debate soon got heated with Linda and Brenda disagreeing on the subject. 

Linda began: “[My partner] doesn’t know I’m going to say this on telly today. But I would welcome a family into my house.

“We’d have the space once the kids have gone and I would love it.

“I love looking after people, I’d love finding out about their cultures, where they’ve come from and everything. 

“I think more people should have ‘migrants welcome’ in their windows.”

“People say, ‘Why don’t they go through the proper channels?’” Linda continued. 

“They can’t, they don’t know about the proper channels, they can’t afford to get a plane over here, can they?”

However, Brenda hit back and suggested those in need in the UK should be helped before welcoming migrants into the country.

She argued: “The system is generous, costing the taxpayer over £1billion every year.”

“£1billion every year!” Brenda exclaimed. “Let’s think about the people that come over here and then they get lost in the system, the tax payer is paying for that.

“Let’s think about the people that are here, born and bred that are suffering and going through hardship as well.

“I’m somebody who thinks charity should begin at home and once you’ve fixed up your home, then you can sort out everybody else.”

Later on the show, Linda was left red-faced after accidentally swearing live on air.

The team were discussing whether staff should get a day off because of the hot weather. 

“Are you cool under there Linda?” Kaye remarked and Linda replied: “Yeah, nice and cool.”

“Got your fan under there?” Kaye asked and Linda hit back: “No I haven’t, I wish I had.”

Pointing at Brenda, she added: “I’ll have her fan in a minute. No I don’t think we should have a day off.”

“I mean, I love the sun. When I got up this morning and the sun was shining I thought, ‘Oh I can’t be a***d to go into work today,” Linda said. 

Immediately correcting herself, she quipped: “I mean, I can’t be bothered to go into to work today.”

“I missed that, I’m a bit deaf,” Kaye joked and Linda urged: “Just carry on!”
