ITV Loose Womens Linda Robson hits back as shes victim of death hoax

Linda Robson hilariously responds to rumours she’s passed away

Linda Robson has posted a video response to those claiming that she had died. Rumours that circulated across social media this weekend have now officially been dispelled by the beloved ITV panellist.

Late last week, hundreds of premature tributes honouring the 65-year-old’s life and legacy poured in across Instagram and X. According to Linda, she woke up on Monday to a multitude of messages and calls from friends querying the online reports.

This afternoon, the mum-of-three took to social media to share a hilarious video to show the death announcement was just a hoax. In the clip – posted to the Loose Woman’s 173,000 followers – Linda had her arms crossed and eyes closed as if lying in a coffin.

She then opened her eyes and began to lift her upper body from her velvet blue sofa, as if rising from the dead. The star then smiled into the camera to prove she was alive and well.

In the post’s caption, she wrote: “Woke up to lots of messages and calls, apparently there has been a rumour I had passed away going around. You won’t get rid of me that easy!”

Following the clip, fans have come out in their droves to wish the Birds of a Feather star well.

One Instagram user wrote: “Glad it’s just a rumour!”

“Some people are sick what’s wrong with them.. I hate this world we are living in,” said a second. “Why can’t people just be nice it’s not that hard.”

Another commented: “It seems like all the LW are popping their clogs. Who even starts these rumours!”

The rumoured death of Linda comes just weeks after her Loose Women co-stars Denise Welch and Janet Street-Porter were also targeted by online trolls.

The former began trending on social media earlier this month after she was falsely reported dead on her Wikipedia page.

However, Denise, 65, later shut down these claims and told her fans that she was busy watching I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.

The false announcement of Linda’s death comes a month after she announced she and her husband Mark Dunford, have gone their separate ways.

Opening up about their split, the presenter said: “He’s a really good dad and we had some good years, but enough is enough.

“I’ve got my family and my kids around me. And I’m going on a cruise with Lesley Joseph in November. I’m keeping busy. I feel fine. I’m just going away on trips all the time.”

Elsewhere in the interview with Woman Magazine, Linda revealed that she wouldn’t be entering the dating pool again.

She explained: “I’m not interested [in dating] honestly. I can’t be a***d with all that.”

Linda and Mark, 62, were married for 33 years before their split earlier this year, and share two children – Louis, 31, and Roberta, 27.
