Loose Women discuss their part in Elton John and Rod Stewart’s ferocious feud

Wednesday's episode of Loose Women saw the stars reveal how they're involved in Elton John and Rod Stewart's ongoing ferocious feud.

Ruth Langsford discussed the two rock legends supposed feud with her co-stars Jane Moore, Brenda Edwards and Janet Street-Porter on the ITV show.

Langsford told viewers how Elton mentioned Rod's appearance on Loose Women amid their reported row.

In a new chapter from the paperback version of his autobiography, Elton claimed Rod was blanking him after making digs in 2018 about his ­Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour.

Elton wrote: "I heard back that he couldn't talk because he was on "constant vocal rest" between shows."

He continued "That seemed fair enough, until I noticed his complete vocal rest didn't preclude him going on more chat shows and radio programmes calling me "money grabbing" and slagging off [my film] Rocketman.

"He was happy enough chatting away on Loose Women, he just didn't want to speak to me."

"I haven't heard from him since… It just seems really strange and sad, not least because it's deprived me of the opportunity to point out how much better my tour's selling."

Ruth then invited Elton onto the show to "tell his side of the story".

She added that Rod should come on too and they can all talk things through.

Elton and Rod have famously enjoyed a friendly rivalry for 55 years, but their jokey banter has seemingly turned frosty.

In his new autobiography chapter, Elton continued about Rod blanking him and making quips about his farewell tour.

Elton wrote: "He said that announcing my retirement was dishonest and "stank of selling tickets".

"It didn't sound like one of our usually jokey swipes at each other.

"He was accusing me of being dishonest about one of the biggest decisions of my life.

"What's more I thought he had a f***ing cheek complaining about me promoting a tour while he was sat on a TV show promoting his own tour."

Loose Women airs weekdays at 12.30pm on ITV.
