The show everyone loves to hate – Loose Women – was taken off the air abruptly after a men’s rights group stormed the studio.
Fathers 4 Justice – an equal parenting rights campaign – invaded the daytime TV show’s set. None of the invaders could be seen on screen but could be heard shouting ‘Fathers For Justice, no kids no cash!’
One of the Loose Women panelists turned to the protesters and said: “Oh, hello,” before coverage cut to the show’s logo and the audio was cut out.
Loose Women tweeted shortly after removing the Fathers 4 Justice members and continued on with the show.'Fathers For Justice!' Hijack @loosewomen very temporarily #Fathers4Justice #loosewomen pic.twitter.com/SCmnEvVXnz— Gem Allard (@AllardWeb) June 15, 2016
*Apologies for that small interruption*— Loose Women (@loosewomen) June 15, 2016
They said it was three audience members who caused the disruption.
And Michelle Heaton, who has been a guest on the show, praised producers for the speedy recovery (I think most people would have wished it was cut for longer, though).The show was briefly interrupted today by 3 members of the audience making a peaceful protest.

Some were excited about the interruption (who wouldn’t be during Loose Women), while others were embarrassed to have been watching it in the first place (no shit).Wow @loosewomen love that you came back on air within seconds 👍🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 well done! Xx— michelle heaton (@wonderwomanshel) June 15, 2016
You know you've reached peek "daytime TV watcher" when you get excited over a bit of a commotion with someone invading the Loose Women set— Amy / Salt and Chic (@saltandchic) June 15, 2016
Let’s face it, I don’t think many people would mind if the show was permanently interrupted…This is where I admit I was watching Loose Women.— Craig Bratt (@craigybratt) June 15, 2016
