Today's episode of Loose Women was pulled off air when members of Fathers4Justice stormed the studio over comments from the show.

The popular ITV daytime show was temporarily taken off air when campaigners from Fathers4Justice stormed the studio in protest over the programme's "reverse sexism".

It happened when Ruth Langsford was chatting to Coleen Nolan about her fitness regime and struggles with weight when an audience member appeared to shot, "Fathers for justice, no kids no cash"

The programme cut to the show's logo and went off air for about 20 seconds while the TV crew dealt with the commotion.

It was reported that three men crashed the stage, waving pants and hurling £20 notes and viewers could still hear the protesters shout as the show was off air.

The chat show later returned to the air and presenter Ruth Langsford told viewers: "Those gentlemen have left."

Fathers4Justice confirmed they were behind the protest in a tweet.

The group was established in 2001 to raise awareness for fathers who feel that they have been mistreated by family courts and forced out of their children's lives.
