Loose Women star Linda Robson leaves Ben Shepherd in stitches with cheeky comment
Loose Women star Linda Robson had Ben Shepherd in stitches with a cheeky comment about 't**s' during an appearance on ITV's Tipping Point.
The 65 year old actress was on a celebrity version of the show to raise money for charity, alongside The Wanted's Max George and Jess Phillips MP.
Each of them took a turn at introducing themselves as they came out with a witty dig at each other, with Linda calling Max and Jess 'Great t**s' in a hilarious reference to her former acting role on Birds of a Feather.
She said: "Hi, my names Linda Robson and I'm an actor and Loose Woman and I played Tracey in Birds of a Feather for many years.
"Today I'm hoping to swan off with £20,000 and get rid these two Great t**s."
Show host Ben couldn't contain his laughter at Linda's cheeky comment, as he threw his head back and chortled.
Despite her hilarious dig, Linda was the first of the celebrities to leave the show, however, she still managed to scoop £800 for The Ben Kinsella Trust.
The charity was set up by former EastEnders actress, Brooke Kinsella, after her younger brother Ben was tragically stabbed to death aged just 16 in 2008.
He and his friends were being chased after leaving a party in London, which resulted in Ben being stabbed 11 times.
The story is particularly close to Linda's heart, as her son, Louis, a good pal of Ben's, was there at the time, and he sadly cradled Ben as he lay dying in his arms.
In 2018, Linda broke down on Loose Women as she recalled the night in question, saying that Ben, Louis and their friends had headed out celebrating after finishing their GCSE's.
She said: "My husband took Louis to the event and she was going to pick him up afterwards. There was a bit of an argument earlier that night, nothing to do with our kids.
"And then, as Ben left that night, he was walking along the street and three youths attacked him very violently – they stabbed him 11 times.
"Louis heard that Ben was calling and he went back and held Ben. He took his jumper…"
A tearful Linda continued: "And then my husband arrived and he was on the floor holding Ben and then an ambulance came and took Ben away."
She then recalled going to the police station with her husband and son Louis – who was covered in Ben's blood.
The first time she realised that Ben had died is when a police officer told her: "We're treating this as a murder enquiry."
