Loose Women ‘s Nadia Sawalha and Kaye Adams revealed on Friday’s show that they took an instant dislike to each other at first.
The pair are now good friends, but they explained when they initially heard they would be working together, they were both furious.
During their first meeting, Kaye said she was disgusted by Nadia’s toe ring, while Nadia said Kaye was holding a huge newspaper and she found it irriating.
The panelists, including Judi Love and Christine Lampard, were discussing online dating and whether you can judge someone based on your first look at them.
Kaye said it was impossible to judge someone based on how they look, and argued you will never make a correct assertion.
“You Nadia,” she said, from her video link to the studio.
“My god you’re a great example, couldn’t stand you when I first saw you.
I know!” agreed Nadia.
“We couldn’t stand each other!”
Nadia continued: “We wouldn’t have been friends no way, we were forced to be because we had to work together.
“When I got the job I said, ‘What, every day with her!?
“And then we ended up being the best of friends, and how wrong we would have been.”
Christine asked how long it took for them to warm to each other, and Nadia replied: “Once we started working together, immediately.”
Kaye chimed in: “I’ll tell you what I saw and I immediately thought, ‘Ew’, she had a ring on her toe, and I thought, ‘Ugh, that is weird!'”
“And she had a massive newspaper,” added Nadia, “And I thought, ‘What am I going to do with a friend like that with a massive newspaper?'”
One delighted viewer tweeted: “I love when Nadia and Kaye talk about when they used to hate each other. Give me that goss #LooseWomen “.
