‘In all the years… this has never happened on Catchphrase’: Loose Women’s Brenda Edwards is left red-faced when she BREAKS the studio set
Loose Women panellist Brenda Edwards was left red-faced when she broke her buzzer and studio set during an enthusiastic appearance on Catchphrase.
The musical theatre star, 52, who rose to fame on The X Factor in 2005, presses firmly on her buzzer when she thinks she knows one of the show’s famous phrases, before gasping: ‘Oh, I’ve broken it!’
Host Stephen Mulhern, 43, then crosses the studio to assess the damage, noting: “She’s actually not just bust it; she’s actually broken the Perspex!

Oh no! Brenda insisted ‘it still works’ and apologised for the gaffe as the damage was clear to see
‘In all the years, I’ll tell you what, not even [former host] Roy [Walker] had to deal with that.’
Brenda insists ‘it still works’ and apologises for the gaffe, as fellow contestants Martin Kemp and Emily Atack struggle to contain their laughter.
Stephen then attempts to continue the show, apprehensive that Brenda may have ‘properly broken the actual buzzer system.’
