Linda Robson said she would 'happily' take  a migrant family into her home on Thursday's Loose Women - after 27 migrants were killed crossing the Channel on Wednesday.

 Linda, 63, said: 'There must be lots of people like me, my children have moved out and I'm going to have room in my house.

‘He don’t know I’m gonna say this on telly today but I would welcome a family into my house. We’ll have the space once the kids have gone. And I’d love it.’
