Loose Women receives 261 Ofcom complaints over Chrissy Teigen baby loss remarks


Loose Women has been slapped with 261 Ofcom complaints over remarks some of its panelists made about deeply candid photographs Chrissy Teigen took following the death of her baby.

During last Thursday’s episode of the ITV show, the stars spoke about Chrissy’s harrowing announcement that morning.

The model had shared a heartbreaking post describing her agony over her newborn son Jack’s death at 24 weeks.

The 34-year-old shared a series of deeply personal pictures of herself in hospital with her 41-year-old singer husband John Legend and their baby.


Discussing the heartwrenching news, the panel gave their thoughts on the snaps.

After host Christine Lampard read out Chrissy’s message of “deep pain”, Nadia Sawalha branded it “heartbreaking” and opened up about her own experience of miscarriage.

And while co-star Carol McGiffin agreed that it was “so sad and so tragic”, she said that she felt “uncomfortable” seeing the pictures.

“I have to say that I did feel a little bit uncomfortable looking at them because I felt like I was intruding in a way,” she went on.

Chrissy and John shared their heartbreaking news with fans on social media

“I know that she’s put them up there and I know that she’s had a lot of followers and fans who care deeply for what’s going on with her whole pregnancy up until yesterday but I just felt like this was not something I should be witnessing.

“I’m not judging her and saying that she’s wrong to do it but I don’t know, I just think that it’s such a private thing. I kind of question if there are some things that you shouldn’t have to share on social media.

“I don’t know where we’re going with all of this.”

Jane Moore asked: “Do you think it’s the timing? Because it’s very soon after it happened and I suppose that for me is the most ‘oh’ thing of it.

“I look and I think – she’s going through the most painful of experiences and I’m thinking, is she in the right head space of that moment to make that decision to put it out there?”

She added: “Then again, I guess we’re all different. Would I put that out there? No I wouldn’t.”

Chrissy took to social media to share her heartbreaking news on Wednesday evening

However, their comments were slammed as judgemental by many viewers.

Fans took to Twitter to comment, with one fuming: “Are #loosewomen seriously criticising a family after they’ve JUST lost a baby? Last time I watch this programme.”

While another commented: “Bashing poor Chrissy Teigen who’s just had a miscarriage, so much for the sisterhood , bloody old harpies. #LooseWomen.”

A third wrote: “”Women should keep their pregnancy loss private”? Why? So they don’t have support and care and love, so they feel shame? Disgusting from #LooseWomen.”


“@loosewomen wanted to have a nice lunch break but in absolute rage. How can judge chrissy on what and how she shares HER OWN stories when she is going through probably the worst time in her life. #ChrissyTeigen#LooseWomen,” another raged.

One wrote: “No one should never ever be judged for posting what they want to post. We all grief in different ways. #LooseWomen.”
