Brenda Edwards sings backstage at Loose Women as she dedicates song to son Jamal

Brenda Edwards made her return to Loose Women today, two months after the shocking and tragic death of her son, Jamal, 31, who suffered a cardiac arrest.

The 53 year old looked fantastic in a video posted to Instagram marking her return, as she strutted down a corridor backstage at Loose Women set, whilst belting out Chandelier by Sia.

Brenda, who came fourth in The X Factor in 2005, rocked a blue and white patterned jumpsuit from Wallis, “bespoke liquorice jewellery” and towering heels as she sang her heart out.

In the post’s accompanying caption celebrating her “first day back”, Branda dedicated her “corridor sessions” to “my baby Jamal”.

She captioned the video: "First show back @loosewomen with @ruthlangsford @coleen_nolan @kelle.bryan I’m wearing a Wallis jumpsuit with bespoke liquorice jewellery and my corridor sessions today I dedicate to my baby Jamal who would love this cheeky cameo from the divine @thescript_danny #SelfBelief #loosewomen #itv #comeon #keepsmiling."

The emotion-inducing video also featured a surprise appearance from Danny O’Donoghue from the band, The Script, and Brenda said that Jamal “would love this cheeky cameo” from him.

As Brenda strode out of the door after her showpiece, the camera panned to an applauding Danny, who said: “I want her on my team. Let her be on my team. Let’s go.”

Brenda looked happy to be back on the Loose Women panel, alongside her co-stars Ruth Langsford, Coleen Nolan and Kéllé Bryan.

On the show, Brenda made no direct reference to Jamal, however she did speak about parenthood and the need for creches when one is working.

She said: "I am a mother, and I needed crèches when I was raising my kids.."

Brenda’s panel return came one day after she gave her first TV interview since her beloved son’s death, in a pre-recorded section on Loose Women.

In the emotionally-charged interview, Brenda opened up Jamal’s death and his final moments and that she was with her son when he died, saying: “I was with him. His sister was with us. We were all at home.

“It was sudden and it was unexpected and he went into a cardiac arrest and he passed with me holding his hand,’ she said.

“I get a little bit of comfort from knowing that I was with him.”

She also shared details about his funeral, revealing that Jamal had left specific instructions for it, which she called his “homegoing”.

In the interview with her Loose Women colleague and good friend, Coleen Nolan, Brenda said: “He was born in Luton, we went back to Luton and had his homegoing there.”

In a nod to his favourite football club, Chelsea, Brenda added: “Everyone wore blue or white, the music was there, he had live entertainment. It was really, really lovely.”

Speaking ahead of her return to Loose Women, Brenda said that it wasn’t a case of wanting to return but “needing to return”.
