Loose Women star Brenda Edwards has incredibly revealed she hasn't turned on her heating for a whopping five years.
On Tuesday's show, 17 October, the 54 year old star shared with viewers: "I've never turned my radiators on in five years and I'm not turning them on. You know what the best regulator for heat is clothing. Put on your clothes, take them off, layers. I know about layers."
Brenda's surprising confession came as the panel, including Ruth Langsford, Coleen Nolan and Janet Street-Porter, were chatting about thermostat tiffs.
When Ruth asked if Brenda even had heating at home, the former X Factor singer responded: "I've got radiators I just don't put them on. I pay the bills and I'm not paying."
Brenda – who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2016 – shared that when she was working in theatre before lockdown, her heating would be on during the day and at night because her kids were at home.
She said: "And that would mean your heating is on 24 hours, I'm not having that. So I switch it off, a standard switch off, we've got hot water that's all you need. What else do you need? If you need something else put on your clothes, put on your jumper, your cardigan."
Brenda recently revealed she's about to take on her first directing role for Hairspray: The Musical.
While hosting Loose Women she announced: "I am excited because I've been offered by the producers of Hairspray my debut director role to direct Hairspray: The musical next year. I've played the role of Motormouth for like five years in this particular production and it was very overwhelming to be asked.
"At the time, when they asked me I thought about it and, at the end of the day, I am a product of an open audition so I suggested to them that I wanted to conduct open auditions to give opportunities and chances to people who might not necessarily have them."
The star admitted that despite being "thrilled" to take on the role of director, she has experienced "imposter syndrome" over the opportunity.
Previously speaking about her new role, the star explained she was over the moon to be headed in a new direction in her career.
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to be invited by the producers to make my directorial debut on the show as a co-director with Paul Kerryson," she said. "Hairspray, and this production in particular, has been such a huge part of my life.
"The show’s story and themes are as relevant as ever and I cannot wait to hold the open auditions to discover a new cast and work together to present a vibrant new production of this timeless musical for everyone to enjoy.”
