🀍 Never let the world change your smile. Instead use your smile to change the world 🀍 I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you to each and every one of you for always being so bloody lovely. So kind and supportive. For sending messages that build people up and make them feel like they have THE best group of friends EVER. You are angels and you have no idea what difference you make to someone who sometimes need to hear your kind words. There will always be someone out there trying to bring you down. Don’t give them the power to take your smile away. The only keeper of your happiness is you. So keep it far away from harm 🀍 you deserve to be happy 🀍

She’s been happily married to her husband Mark for 30 years now, after meeting in a rather different way:

“I used to babysit for Mark – he was a couple of years younger than me… I was 16 and he was 13 and a half, and he was a bit of a pain, to be honest. And we lived in the street next to each other.”

Who do we think would make a good Loose Women contender?
