Lorna is the mother of one of the girls involved in the Rochdale sex ring.

Rob Sandy wrote: "Got to say I thought Maxine Peake was at her absolute best in Three Girls".

"I'm from Manchester, Rochdale is 11 miles from my home", Lisa shared.

"Abbie Andrews wrote: "#ThreeGirls most uncomfortable, pit of stomach sickening TV I've watched in a long time.

However, speaking on Loose Women, 40-year-old Lisa admitted she has now had her final surgery done, a boob job - but without implants - simply lifting up what was there.

Loose Women star Lisa, 40, spoke out about acting in the hard-hitting drama, which has received praise from viewers for its heartbreaking but important story.

"I believe senior police officers should be held accountable for failing to act", she said.
