On Loose Women Today, Linda Robson got her face red after forgetting that she had previously worked with guest Luisa Bradshaw-White.
Actress Linda, 63, buried her face in her hands during this afternoon’s awkward exchange (Thursday, June 3).
She apparently had no recollection of Luisa appearing in Birds of a Feather when it aired on BBC One.

Loose Women Today: The “Loose Connection” of Linda and Luisa
It was revealed at the start of the show that guest Luisa had some history with another panelist.
A clip showing former EastEnders star Luisa sharing a scene with Linda on the longtime sitcom was then released.

However, despite the evidence in front of her, Linda admitted that she didn’t remember them working together.
And embarrassingly, it turns out the pair shared more screen time than this single scene.
How Linda reacted
Linda looked slightly mystified as they shot the clip – but also apologized for not remembering their collaboration.
“I’m so sorry I can’t remember,” she admitted.
I really impressed you, didn’t I?
However, it appears Linda was informed that they appeared on the show more than once.
Linda added, “I’m so sorry Luisa, apparently you were in two episodes, weren’t you?”

How Luisa reacted
Unfortunately, this was not the end of Linda’s unease.
This is because Luisa then informed her that her character had also appeared on a Christmas special.

A mortified Linda then covered her face with her hands. But Luisa took the exchange with good humor.
Faced with wide-spread reactions from the rest of the panel, Luisa reflected, “I really impressed you, haven’t I? “
Speaking, host Kaye Adams said: “I tell you what, you actors are a fickle bunch, aren’t you!”

It wasn’t the only time on today’s Loose Women to include a reference to Birds of a Feather.
Linda also revealed that her mother had “turned on” her former co-star and on-screen sister Pauline Quirke.
Linda explained, “There was a time when Pauline Quirke was in Emmerdale and she played a really mean character. And she [Linda’s mum] turned against Pauline!
“[Linda’s mum] said, ‘Oh, I never knew she was like that!’ ”
