Today’s Loose Women kicked off with a conversation about empty nest syndrome and host Andrea McLean noted Denise was saying goodbye to her son Louis as he moves out of the family home today. As she brought up the topic, Denise could be seen breaking down in tears as she thought about her son moving into his own flat.
Andrea remarked: “Denise, you arrived at work this morning feeling a little bit emotional.”
Taking a deep breath, Denise explained: “Louis’s leaving home today and it’s so ridiculous.”
Fighting back tears she continued: “I’ve been sat here saying, ‘Don’t be stupid, this is the best thing that could happen.’
“And I know that it is and I know that you’re in the same situation with Finlay,” Denise added pointing at Andrea.
“And he’s leaving home today, he’s 19. Oh my God, this is so embarrassing, this is so cringe.”
Andrea went to pass a box of tissues as she explained: “No, this was me all weekend. Am I allowed to give you tissues?”
“I’m not there and I got back from Portugal on Sunday night,” Denise continued reaching for a tissue.
“We’ve been planning this for ages, he’s moving into a flat with his mate and I walked in and all of his stuff was piled up by the front door.
“I will see loads of him. He’s in London and I come to London every week. It’s the fact that it’s the end of an era.
“It seems like two days ago, and I know lots of people whose kids are going off to college and uni and whatever, will be feeling this.
“It seems like two minutes ago that he was clinging onto my leg and I used to pretend he was a little koala bear in nursery school.
“Oh my God this is so, it’s so silly and Louis would go, ‘Oh my God mum, that’s tragic.’ He would if saw me. It’s just because it’s the end of an era.”

An image of Denise with a young Louis flashed up on screen as the panel all cooed over the youngster.
The moment came after Denise became embroiled in a row with ITV colleague Piers Morgan last week.
Following Denise’s appearance on This Morning to discuss the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Piers slammed her on social media.
He posted on Twitter: “Dumb, deluded & dangerous Covid-deniers like Denise Welch need to stop being given airtime.
“Her idiotic, ill-informed ramblings – from a woman who never stops telling us that she suffers from mental illness – will cost lives by persuading people to think the virus isn’t a threat.”
Denise hit back: “Please ask Mr Morgan to show me one tweet, one interview where I have denied Covid?
“He doesn’t want to be telling complete and utter lies with such a huge following. Seriously.”
Piers told his 7.6 million followers: “You can either listen to deluded D-list celebrities like Denise Welch about coronavirus, or this guy who is one of the most brilliant medical/scientific minds in the world. I suggest the latter.”
Piers added a link to medical researcher Jeremy Farrar who explained how the number of coronavirus patients in France was on the rise.
Loose Women airs weekdays on ITV at 12.30pm.
