Gloria Hunniford became the second contestant to be identified on The Masked Singer UK on Sunday night.
The ITV star, 81, took to the stage disguised as Snow Leopard – wearing an emerald green suit made of crushed velvet, a white fur helmet and gloves to make her appear like the beautiful wild animal.
Since being unveiled, only one of Gloria's Loose Women co-stars have so far taken to social media to offer up support and kind words.
Panellists including Nadia Sawalha, Stacey Solomon, Frankie Bridge, Katie Piper, Ruth Langsford, Kaye Adams and Linda Robson have all been active on social media but failed to give Gloria a mention.
Former Loose Women star Saira Khan even took to her own platform on Monday to wish host Ruth Langsford's husband Eamonn Holmes well on his debut for GB News.
Recently, Nadia threw all of her support behind friend Stacey when she welcomed her baby daughter Rose into the world in October.
Both Jane Moore and Nadia even popped round to see little Rose when she was just days old.
In spite of the friendly atmosphere and team spirit for other panelists, only ex-Coronation Street star Denise has so far taken to social media to congratulate Gloria.
Taking to social media, Denise shared a snippet of Gloria in action with a comment that read: "OMG @instaglogran is Snow Leopard, go Glo #Masked Singer."
In the past, rumours had surfaced to suggest all isn't as it seems behind the Loose Women scenes – with feud claims coming to light.
When Saira quit the ITV show at the start of 2021, she fuelled speculation that not all of the stars of the show were getting on.
Speaking honestly on Instagram, she addressed the elephant in the room, telling her 103,000 followers: "Right then – let's put this baby to bed!
"Is there anyone out there who totally loves and gets on with all their colleagues in their organisation?
"If you do – good on you."
She went on: "But from my life experience I can tell you, I have been in many work situations where I’ve got on with some and not others – but in order to get the job done I’ve tolerated people, like they’ve tolerated me, for the bigger picture and because it’s professional to get on, despite differences, to get the job done.
"I can tell you for a fact, that in the world of TV there is no-one that gets on with everyone they work with – it’s just that I am honest enough to say it and that’s what shocks people.
"I left that show on my terms and I am proud that I controlled my exit.
The TV star continued: "I know the risk I took doing it that way – basically that I won’t be invited to any daytime shows anytime soon – but that price I was willing to pay because I’m not that desperate to be on the telly!
“What’s important in my life is feeling that I am doing right by me, my family, friends and values – I was not prepared to keep working in an environment that didn’t make me happy anymore – it wasn’t empowering and honestly I was becoming someone I was not.
"I will say it again, there are some people who I still am very close to on Loose Women, but there are others that I am very happy never to cross their path again – why , because they are not the type of people I would choose to be friends with in my 'real' life – just as they would not choose me if they had a choice."
Saira made it clear that she would "never" disclose which stars she "tolerated" explaining it was "no one’s business" except her own.
