Ruth Langsford slams cruel Thomas Markle for emotionally blackmailing Meghan

Loose Women panellist Ruth Langsford has taken a swipe at Meghan Markle's estranged father Thomas during a scathing rant on air.

The 61-year-old host labelled him as "cruel" for "emotionally blackmailing" his royal daughter.

The ITV host said that he was doing so by continuing to give interviews where he chooses to blast to her.

After Thomas' recent Good Morning Britain interview, Ruth said she felt sorry for him but thinks it's "awkward" how he tries to gain Meghan's attention despite several failed attempts.

On Tuesday's episode of the lunchtime show, Ruth said: “If I’m absolutely honest, my initial thought was not again.

“Please, just stop now. I almost feel awkward watching him now. I think surely this is something you should be sorting out with your daughter privately.

“Whether she is responding to you or not, you’re making the whole thing very public and if the whole problem is that she doesn’t like you talking so publicly about whatever it is that is wrong with your relationship, then surely that is not the way to get that relationship back on track,” Ruth insisted.

She continued: “He could say all sorts of things about her, but none of us actually know what the problems are.”

During his explosive chat on GMB, Thomas claimed Meghan had "pretty much disowned both sides of her family" and urged her to "grow up".

Thomas went on to say that she is "childish" and emphasised how she "changed" upon meeting Prince Harry.

He fumed that it was "ridiculous" that he had been estranged from his famous daughter for almost four years.

During his GMB segment, Thomas also went on to say that doing interviews about Meghan is his only way of communicating with her these days.

This comes after more Loose Women drama, where Lorraine Kelly and her daughter Rosie starred on the programme the day before.

The presenter's daughter Rosie made a cheeky dig at her famous mum, calling her "embarrassing" on live TV.

26-year-old Rosie stars alongside her Scottish TV star mum Lorraine on Channel 4's Celebrity Gogglebox.

The mother-daughter duo even host a podcast series together called What if? with Lorraine & Rosie Pixie, where they chat to celebrity guests to explore life's mysteries.

However, Rosie had some brutal feedback for the showbiz legend when asked about her relationship with her mum on ITV's Loose Women.

Appearing on the daytime panel show on Monday (18 October), Rosie was asked what life was like for her growing up with a famous TV star mum.

Rosie said: "I never knew any different, and growing up we were always on TV so I never knew any different really.

"And like people at school were lovely, everyone's always been so nice."

She then had a pop at mum Lorraine when she added: "I think it's because you're so… you are embarrassing."

Loose Women airs weekdays on ITV at 12.30pm
