Loose Women faces complaints over Kim Woodburn interview
Ofcom has received more than 3,000 complaints about Wednesday's episode of Loose Women after Kim Woodburn walked off the show in tears, BBC reported.
The former How Clean Is Your House? presenter was invited on the show to reconcile with Loose Women panellist Coleen Nolan.
The pair had a public fall out when they both appeared on Celebrity Big Brother last year.
The pair rowed again on Loose Women before Woodburn stormed off set.
An Ofcom spokesperson said they had received 3,297 complaints: "We are assessing these complaints against our broadcasting rules, before deciding whether or not to investigate."
A number of viewers accused the panel, which included Linda Nolan, Janet Street-Porter and Linda Robson, of bullying Kim.

ITV said in a statement: "Kim agreed to come onto the panel today at the invitation of the producers on the understanding it was for a reconciliation with Coleen Nolan.
"Kim becoming upset was never the intention and the panel did endeavour to comfort her.
"She was offered counselling after the show, which she declined."
Celebrity Big Brother rift
Janet Street-Porter was dressed as a judge to mediate their conversation but it soon descended into accusations.
Woodburn said she had been bullied by the other housemates on Celebrity Big Brother including Nolan, who she described as "two-faced".
Nolan agreed with Woodburn that she had been "two-faced" because she said she had been trying to keep the peace.
"I didn't tell you how vile you are from day one. That's what I should have done," she said.
My view: I watched the video no one bullied Kim, the woman is vile, she didn't behave very well in the Big Brother house, she shouts a lot. I just don't get why TV stations invite her to come on air and run her mouth, she's not entertaining at all. The woman is annoying.
