Loose Women Jane Moore always has sweet snap of daughters with her while on air

Loose Women star Jane Moore has accidentally revealed the sweet way she keeps her family close while filming for the panel show.

During a debate on whether schoolchildren should be permitted to have phones with access to social media, Jane picked up her own phone to demonstrate.

She believed educating your kids and having conversations with them about the Internet is the best way forward, while fellow panelist Brenda Edwards reckoned children should stay away from smartphones altogether.

But it came as Jane was discussing people using their smartphones in restaurants rather than engaging in conversation with their companions.

Picking her own phone up off the desk to demonstrate, she said: "Sometimes I'll pick up my phone when I'm with you and check, 'Oh the kids are okay'. And then I'll put it down."

She remarked on the rudeness of people ditching in-person conversation entirely to stay focused on their gadgets – but, as she showed her phone to the camera, a glimpse of her lockscreen photo was visible.

It looked to be a snap of her two daughters, Ellie and Grace.

If so, it's an incredibly sweet way for Jane to keep them close while on-set.

Though she tends to keep her personal life private, Jane does share the occasional photo on social media with her kids – and recently posed with Ellie, her eldest, on holiday next to a vintage VW Campervan.

Writing alongside the snap, Jane penned: "Touring the gorgeous Dorset in a vintage VW camper van called Scarlett with my eldest daughter. Such fun.

"We’ve already done Poole, Studland Bay, Corfe Castle and West Bay and tomorrow it’s the New Forest."

Jane also has a step-daughter, Lauren, with her partner Gary.

The phone debate caused plenty of controversy in the studio, with Jane arguing: "When you are a kid at secondary school and you want to fit in with everyone else and they've got one, it is the hardest thing in the world to say to your child, 'You're not gonna have that'.

"I think what you have to do is say, 'Look, I am handing this to you and you're gonna see an awful lot of bad stuff on this. You've got to have an open dialogue with your kids and just teach them how to handle what you're placing into their hands," she explained.

Brenda chipped in: "But then you've got the tech giants who themselves have admitted they won't let their children onto social media – and they've created them!

"They're using the rest of us as guinea pigs!"

Loose Women airs weekdays from 12:30pm on ITV.
