Loose Women’s Denise Welch has publicly criticised the authorities following recent updates surrounding missing person Nicola Bulley.

Mother-of-two Nicola has been missing since January 27 after vanishing when walking her dog by the River Wyre in Lancashire.

Denise has called out Lancashire Police for sharing details recently about Nicola’s struggles with alcohol and menopause.

The former Waterloo Road actress took to Twitter and reacted to This Morning's Emma Kenny, who shared an article regarding the press conference from Lancashire Police.

Emma Kenny’s tweet read: “To say this is HIGHLY INAPPROPRIATE is a major understatement!!! Nicola Bulley DID NOT NEED THIS PUTTING INTO THE PUBLIC DOMAIN!!!! This is a distraction from mistakes made END OF #nicolabulley."

The Loose Women panellist quote-tweeted Emma’s message and added: “It’s an absolute disgrace!!!”

Denise was not alone in her criticism, as Fern added: “I am uncomfortable with the latest news suggesting that Nicola Bulley has an issue with alcohol and menopause."

Earlier in the week, Lancashire Police publicly announced the mum-of-two had been considered a high-risk missing person from the start of the investigation and declared they were called to a concern for welfare report at her home last month.

Authorities initially refused to comment on those vulnerabilities, but they later released a public statement to explain this in more detail.

It read: “Nicola had in the past suffered with some significant issues with alcohol which were brought on by her ongoing struggles with the menopause and that these struggles had resurfaced over recent months.”

“This caused some real challenges for Paul and the family,” it added in reference to Nicola’s partner, Paul Ansell.

The decision from Lancashire Police to reveal Nicola’s issues has also received a backlash from celebrities and MPs.

EastEnders actress Tamzin Outhwaite has also shared her anger, writing on her Instagram stories: “Fuming. Police have no idea, so let’s point the finger at the victim and talk about our hormones and alcohol.

“I think many of us can relate to being a mum, perimenopausal and like to have wine, but headlines like this are a classic example of misogynistic c***.”
