Loose Women’s Janet Street Porter reveals she had sex with a lodger instead of charging him rent

JANET Street Porter shocked Loose Women viewers today as she revealed she once had sex with a lodger instead of charging him rent.

The straight-talking journalist, 73, laughed as she recalled bedding the guest during a segment about taking on a lodger to beat loneliness.

Janet, who has been married five times, said: "I did have male lodgers between divorces. Not at the same time, one after the other.

"And I've got to admit, I did have sex with one of my lodgers because I didn't charge him rent."

It left the panel Brenda Edwards and Coleen Nolan gobsmacked and the audience in hysterics.

Brenda asked: "Oh so he was a lodger with benefits?"

A smiling Janet replied: "Exactly. The only thing I asked of him was that he always had some crumpets in the fridge."

Andrea McLean jumped in and said: "We have to stress this was a mutually agreeable arrangement and he was fine with it all."

To which Janet said: "Oh my goodness, I'm so sorry if I've said something offensive."

Her story split opinion with some finding it hilarious while others found it "disgusting".

However, some questioned if a man had said that the response would have been different.

Pne posted: "Firstly....I greatly admire Janet street porter.

"Secondly.....if bloke had said that he'd be in a lot of bother.....rightly so.

"Thirdly....hope the pile on doesn't become ridiculous."

One viewer wrote: "Sat with a sprained knee watching #LooseWomen Janet Street Porter @The_Real_JSP You crack me up! So needed a giggle."

Another posted: "Janet Street Porter has me in absolute fits #LooseWomen."

A third said: "@loosewomen Janetstreetporter. Absolutely fantastic! Says it like it is."
