Loose Women panellists clashed over whether school non-uniform days should be banned or not.

Was there anything more upsetting than forgetting about a non-uniform day in school? From experience, no there definitely wasn’t.

Yesterday, Loose Women viewers were left completely divided after a live debate discussing the issue of possibly banning non-uniform days.

The discussion came about as more and more headteachers are cancelling costume and non-uniform days due to concerns about them being unfair to children who may not be able to afford clothes to wear.

Studies have revealed that there has been a spike in the number of children missing school on non-uniform days.

During the live discussion, Stacey said: “It’s a hard one. I do totally emphasise with anyone who dreads non-uniform day, especially if they can’t afford a costume.

Although she additionally stated that she doesn’t think they should be cancelled, she added: “I do think it’s nice for the kids and I don’t think the kids worry as much as the adults do. The other day it was ‘wear red day’ for racism and I just gave Leighton one of Zach’s tops to wear – he wasn’t bothered
at all.”

Brenda disagreed, referring to her own experiences at school. She said: “I don’t think it’s a parent thing. For me, there were three lots of clothes – home, church and school uniform. I like a school uniform, it shows unity, there’s no reason for someone to pick you out of a crowd.

“It [non-uniform days] runs a risk of making that child feel like they’re left out of something.”

Loose Women viewers were divided by the debate with some supporting the view that they should be cancelled.

One tweeted, “When I was at school, I hated non-uniform days. As there was always the ‘pressure to look a certain way etc. It puts more pressure on the children and could create an opportunity for bullying”.

However, one disagreed tweeting “Banning non-school uniform days is nonsense”

Making a passionate plea on the morning show, Phil hit out at the health secretary Matt Hancock after delaying his announcement.

Phillip and co-host Holly Willoughby, as well as guests Vanessa Feltz and Nick Ferrari, reacted to the news on the show.

Nick said: “People who own pubs in the likes of Redcar, Hartlepool. my heart goes out to them.

“I hope they’re there come 2021.”

Adding to Nick’s concerns, Phillip said while looking directly down the lens: “If you have a pub or restaurant that you know is down the road and they’re doing takeouts in Tier 3, make sure, that if you want them at the end of the road by the end of all this, that it’s them that you’re going to for takeouts if they’ve set it up, rather than the big usual ones you might get your Saturday night takeaway from.

There’s a brand new Chaser in town named ‘The Menace’ ready to battle with contestants. 

Irish genius, Darragh Ennis is a neuroscientist who first appeared on the show in 2017 where he played against Paul and performed incredibly.

He won a whopping amount of money that was dramatically decreased by the other contestants on the episode.

The brainbox will be joining Jenny ‘The Vixen’ Ryan, Shaun ‘The Dark Destroyer’ Wallace, Mark ‘The Beast’ Labbett, Anne ‘The Governess’ Hegerty and Paul ‘The Sinnerman’ Sinha and will be called ‘The Menace’

Darragh said: “I’m so pleased to be the sixth Chaser. It’s brilliant to be on such an amazing quiz team, and so much fun working with Bradley Walsh.

“It’s such an exciting opportunity and I can’t wait to take on more contestants!”

Host Bradley Walsh joked: “Another Chaser? ANOTHER CHASER? That’s another person cleverer than me on The Chase. I must have words with the producers.

“But I can’t wait to educate Darragh on the important things in life; custard creams, cowboy films and real ale.”

Fans are delighted Darragh will become the sixth Chaser and that no one is  leaving.

One wrote: “Exciting but reallyyyy strange seeing a new Chaser in the chair!” 

While another added: “I know! I know I’m late and feck me, it’s the newbie!!! About time!! #TheChase “

He’s already had his first stab of the show but it didn’t go too well as the first player beat him.

What do you make of the newbie?
