During the Loose Women appearance Kim broke down in tears as she accused Coleen of making her life ‘hell’ and bullying her during their time in the CBB house.

The pensioner went on to accuse the audience of ‘laughing’ at her, as she spat: ‘Look you folks can laugh all you want. I’m going to tell you something now and then I’m going to leave. I had a very very sad childhood, a brutal childhood, it was terrible. 

‘Then when I went in the Big Brother house I was very upset in that house and I pretended I wasn’t, I pretended I was fine.’

Coleen then hit back: ‘We got this every day as well’, whilst Coleen’s sister Linda said of Kim’s gripes: ‘We know, we’ve heard it.’

Shaking her finger at Coleen, Kim then angrily shouted out ‘She is trash’, as she stormed out the studio, ignoring Janet Street-Porter call out ‘She’s not trash’.

As Coleen then attempted to throw to an advert break, Kim could be heard continuing to shout out that Coleen is ‘trash’ and accused her of being a ‘bully’.

Kim explained to The Sun that she felt ambushed during the interview, insisting: ‘It was disgusting. It was like a circus and I was there for some cruel entertainment. I want Coleen and her sister fired.’

She told The Sun Online she agreed to take part in the Loose Women discussion in an attempt to make amends with Coleen, but she was caught of guard when she was asked to speak first during the interview.

The presenter added that she felt Loose Women bosses could have stopped the interview when things got heated, insisting that the appearance bought up bad memories of her time on CBB: ‘I was shown cruelty again by that woman. I’m embarrassed once again. And I’ve cried on TV once again.

‘I do go at people if they go for me. I hope I never live to see the day when a human being in her 50s and her sister could mock a lady sobbing on TV. They should not be on that show. And I will do all I can to get them off it.’

Kim donated her fee for the interview to a children’s hospice and The Sun report she received a call from CBB’s Bit on The Side host Rylan Clark Neal during the interview, who showed his support.

An ITV spokesperson told MailOnline: ‘Kim agreed to come onto the panel today at the invitation of the producers on the understanding it was for reconciliation with Coleen.

‘Kim becoming upset was never the intention and the panel did endeavour to comfort her. She was offered counselling after the show, which she declined.’

Following the tense scenes, Coleen’s son Shane took to Twitter to defend his mother, posting: ‘Great television on @loosewomen , however I really don’t think Kim should of been a guest. She’s clearly not in the right mental state. Either that or she’s a brilliant actress. #loosewomen #teamcol’

He added: ‘The people thinking that was bullying are just as f***ing stupid as Kim Woodburn. She went for Linda straight away, then my mum. You have been conned by Kim, she’s an absolute fruit loop. How can people not see it ? #loosewomen’.

Viewers were divided, however, with several claiming that Kim had in fact been bullied, with others expressing their anger at Coleen.

They posted: ‘I feel so sorry for the loose women having to put up with Kim on the show, I think they made a great decision for entertainment but a bad decision for the people sitting on the panel. #LooseWomen’

‘Wow. I just watched the Nolan’s should be embarrassed for double tagging an old woman. She is feisty & explosive & just needs a tender hand however angry she seems. They used her for a slot shame on #loosewomen. Not good. Kim doesn’t take much to calm down or change her stance.’

‘#LooseWomen you are always talking about mental health awareness yet took it upon yourselves to invite a 76 year old woman into the studio to provoke a reaction out of her for ‘entertainment’ shame on you all’; ‘The sooner #loosewomen is binned off the tele the better. Can you imagine a panel of men acting like they do and getting away with. Get rid’.

Others defended Coleen by claiming the row was set up or that Kim had brought it on herself, sharing: ‘The producers are probably giving Kim a bonus now – and one to Colleen – for that staging. All made up for raitings and click bait. #LooseWomen
