Frankie Bridge had an ‘awkward moment’ on Loose Women on Monday when star guest Hayley Mills asked her a ‘confusing’ question about her career.

The 33-year-old who rose to fame originally as part of S Club Juniors before enjoying success with girl band The Saturdays, was discussing child stardom with the famous actress when a question from the guest threw her off.

Frankie said: “Most of your friends are just starting to figure out what to do then and I had that real moment of ‘What am I going to do for the rest of my life?’ when you’ve still got so much ahead of you.”

The 76-year-old then asked Bridge: “But you wanted to carry on acting? Or what?”

Attempting to clear up the confusion about what she did for a living, the star replied: “Ermmm yeah, I was a singer, so I did carry on, but there was a stage where it was really difficult. 

“I wondered what I was going to do and I wonder if that’s where, you know in the past, you’ve seen child actors and singers go off the rails a bit.”

Loose Women viewers quickly latched onto the awkwardness in the studio and some believed Frankie shouldn’t have compared herself to Mills in the first place.

One person tweeted: “Frankie comparing herself to Hayley Mills,” with an unimpressed face GIF.

Another wrote: “No no no no we don’t care about Frankie… Back to Hayley please #loosewomen f*** sake.”

Mills began her acting career as a child and was hailed as a promising newcomer, winning a BAFTA for Most Promising Newcomer for her performance in the British crime drama film Tiger Bay in 1959.,

She then won an Academy Juvenile Award for Disney’s Pollyanna in 1960 before her first Golden Globe for New Star of the Year a year later in 1961.
