Concerned Loose Women viewers have urged Linda Robson to go to the doctors after she revealed she had an accident on holiday.
The 63-year-old presenter kicked off Tuesday’s show by sharing that she wet herself during a recent trip abroad.
‘I’ve been to Portugal, with my friend Lesley Joseph. We did parasailing, go-karts, cooking and swimming. We did everything,’ Linda began, before saying she visited a water park.
‘We got on one of those rubber dinghies and there were four of us on there and I was on the back,’ she explained. ‘The last thing they said to me was “don’t let go of the handles”.
‘It went up the wall and when we got to the top of that wall, I couldn’t hold on any longer so I let go of one hand so then I was like superwoman going down the shoots with one hand.’
Linda continued: ‘[I] got to the bottom and the dingy landed on top of me, three people were then on top of me. I actually wet myself as well.’

Viewers were quick to express their worry for Linda on social media after she made the admission.
‘Why does Linda keep telling people she wets herself? She needs to see the GP #LooseWomen,’ wrote one.
Another added: ‘She seems to think it’s hilarious.’
The NHS suggests you should see a GP if you have any type of urinary incontinence. Urinary incontinence is a common problem and you should not feel embarrassed talking to them about your symptoms.
Urinary incontinence can usually be diagnosed after a consultation with a GP, who will ask about your symptoms and may do a pelvic or rectal examination, depending on whether you have a vagina or a penis.

It’s not always possible to prevent urinary incontinence, but there are some steps you can take that may help reduce the chance of it happening, including maintaining a healthy weight, avoiding or cutting down on alcohol and staying active.
Loose Women airs weekdays at 12.30pm on ITV.
