During lockdown, many citizens have taken a more laid-back approach when it comes to their appearance and this is no different for Loose Women star Andrea McLean, 50.

Back in March, the presenter said she was keeping sane in lockdown by meditating as well as wearing no bra and shoes as she relaxed at home.

In an exclusive interview with, Andrea said she has no plans to go back to wearing “uncomfortable” underwired bras.

She said, laughing: “Well it’s one of these things where you think, ‘Who decided that this is how we should all be?’

“I think I’m never going to go back to an underwired one again, that’s for sure.

“It’s about comfort, rather than thinking, ‘I’m doing this because that’s how it’s always been’.”

She added: “The bra analogy can actually carry out for the rest of the world, you know, ‘Why did we do that again?’”

“Why did we wear these really uncomfortable things?

“Obviously, you need to wear something, but I’d rather it be something I’m comfortable in, rather than what looks nice.”

Just days after Prime Minister Boris Johnson enforced a lockdown in March, Andrea told fans about her new laid-back routine at home.

In view of her 255,000 followers, she credited the small things in her life which were keeping her occupied.

She began: “I’ve got my plants, got my crystals, got my view and that’s where I meditate for 10 minutes very day.

“And the next thing I’ve done is barely touched my hair, which has been really great.

“You guys always see me when I’m really done, with my hair pieces it and it looks all.”

She added: “This is a confession. Has anyone else bothered wearing a bra while we’ve been off? I don’t think I’m ever going to be able to wear one again.”

Andrea concluded her post, writing: “It’s been so nice. That and shoes. I’ve literally been braless wearing slippers the whole time – I feel like I’ve gone feral.”

The presenter has since returned to Loose Women with a fresh appearance, thanks to her husband Nick Feeney, who dyed her hair.
