Mike Tindall appeared on a special episode of ITV’s Loose Women to mark International Men’s Day. The Loose Men panel also starred TV presenter Ore Oduba and comedian Iain Stirling. The show aired just days before the christening of their son, Lucas Philip Tindall, at the Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge in Windsor.

Ms Bowie added: “And I also like that Mike is just so open about things, I believe it’s very refreshing and appreciate that.
