LOOSE Women star Janet Street-Porter shocked co-star Coleen Nolan today when she branded her a "pig".
The singer, 57, looked horrified at the remark from her 75-year-old colleague on the show.
Speaking about PM Boris Johnson, Janet referred to his nickname, which comes from getting out of scrapes.
She said: "Slippery pig" adding: "That goes with you, Coleen."
Coleen looked shocked, but Janet ploughed on, later issuing an explanation saying the jibe was not intended.
She said, following a commercial break: "Can I say I did not call you a greased piglet.

The star replied: "It's alright, I went backstage and sizzled away with anger."
Janet joked, continuing the pork theme: "I thought she was going to streak off, but we've got her back."
Coleen referenced the remarks throughout the show, asking: "Should I change my name to Percy Pig?"

He said: "What's going on between you two?"
Janet shot back: "Oh she thinks I called her a pig earlier."
The 74-year-old musician asked: "Why did you call her a pig?"
Janet replied: "Oh you take her side just because you shared a bill with her back in the day."
