Loose Women star Denise Welch has shut down viewers who ask her to be "quiet".
On Monday's show (June 20), Denise was joined by co-stars Ruth Langford, 62, Katie Piper, 38, and Jane Moore, 60, where they spoke about filling awkward silences in conversations. .
After sharing her opinion on the topic, Denise, 64, opened up about the trolling she experiences when people tell her she talks too much.
The former Waterloo Road actress revealed that she receives tweets from viewers who demand her to "shut up" or "be quiet" when she appears on the ITV talk show.
Hitting straight back, Denise used the segment topic to shut down trolls, telling them: "Don't watch it then!"
In the segment called "Do you dread sitting in silence?", Denise said: "I do tend to be a little bit of a filler.
"Sometimes with shy people, I understand it’s not their fault, but sometimes shy people suck the energy out of you. It’s difficult to be the person to make the conversation all the time."
To which Katie replied: "Maybe the shy people think you’re the filler and think 'I wish she would stop asking me if I’m going on holiday.'"
Denise then responds by hitting back at viewers who troll her online.
The mum-of-two said: “I bet there’s people on Twitter who are just going ‘I wish she’d just shut up’ and ‘give people a chance to say something'.
"Well, don't watch it then! There’s an off button"
Following the discussion, users took to Twitter to share their response to Denise's reaction.
One viewer tweeted: "Denise making it about her again."
Another wrote: "The face on Denise, she does not like people telling her to be quiet."
After a recent episode, Denise was forced to defend herself after coming under attack from trolls who slammed her for talking about her 49-year-old husband Lincoln on the show.
She told Platinum Magazine: “They were meaning to troll me, but it was very funny.
“They said ‘Denise mentions Lincoln more than the Lincoln Tourist Board’. I loved that!”
