Linda Robson has revealed she recently jetted off on a solo holiday to Mallorca amid reports of a ‘crisis’ in her marriage with husband Mark Dunford.
The Loose Women star, 64, was part of the panel on Friday’s episode of the ITV show and told her co-hosts how she recently went to Spain by herself.
Kaye Adams told Linda she was looking great and fresh, to which she replied: ‘I went to Mallorca for a few days away.
‘Because [her daughter] Lauren was taking the girls and her husband to Tenerife, I hinted a few times could I come, and they made it quite clear that I wasn’t welcome.
‘I got the right hump, so I booked a flight to Mallorca, on my own, it was lovely. Really, really, lovely.

‘The only one I missed was the dog who had to stay at home.’
Nadia Sawalha then chimed in to say she wasn’t sure if she would be able to enjoy herself on a solo holiday.
But Linda insisted there’s nothing to fear, saying: ‘You can do whatever you want, go to what restaurant you want to, go to bed at whatever time you want to.’
It comes after the Birds of a Feather actress reportedly told friends she is going through a marriage crisis with Mark.
The couple, who married in 1990, live together in London but it was claimed in recent weeks they have been having relationship difficulties.
A source told The Sun on Sunday: ‘Linda has been quite open behind the scenes about problems in her marriage.
‘They hit a bit of a rough patch before Christmas but they’ve managed to work through it.
‘Linda turned to her family and close friends who supported her through it all.’

The actress recently spoke about going through ‘ups and downs’ in her relationship.
She reportedly told Best magazine: ‘There have been ups and downs, obviously, like any couple. What I think we have in common is that we love our kids more than anything.’
Linda and Mark share children Louis, 31, and Roberta, 27. Linda also has a daughter Lauren, 40, with her ex Tony Tyler.
Linda – who previously spoke out about a few rough years she’d suffered with Mark – previously recalled on Loose Women the hurt she went through after she was cheated on by two former partners.
The show’s panel were discussing how Emmerdale actress Amy Nuttall became suspicious of husband Andrew Buchan before he left her for fellow Better cast member Leila Farzad.
Linda – who previously claimed she has never stripped off in front of husband Mark – said: ‘It’s intuition, it’s happened to me twice.
‘Two partners have cheated on me, and both times I’ve known something was wrong in the relationship and I’ve confronted them and they’ve always denied it.
‘Until eventually one of their friends or one of your friends says, “Do you know that this has been happening behind your back?”‘

Linda also previously spoke out about suffering heartbreak when her ex-partner of 11 years Tony Tyler cheated on her.
She told the Loose Women audience in 2017: ‘I caught my ex several times cheating on me — even when I was pregnant with Lauren.
‘Once I was away and Lauren was away with me. When I got back, everything seemed fine in the flat.
‘But when I went to go to bed that night, I moved the pillow and there was a tissue with lipstick on it, and long blonde hairs.
‘I remember saying to my ex “what’s this?”, and he said “one of my friends stayed and her partner, it must be from her.” But you know when you know?’
She explained how she did her own detective work as she was determined to find out what was going on.
Linda said: ‘When I found out it was like a relief because you know then it’s over, you’re not going mad.’
The star continued: ‘I’d found letters, I followed him.
‘I caught him with someone while I was pregnant with Lauren as well.
‘I was waiting outside the house and he went into this girl’s house.’
