Amid reports that she has fallen out with Birds of A Feather co-star Pauline Quirke, Linda Robson has left her friend of 50 years out of a tribute post to her favourite women.
The television personality, who previously revealed her battle with anxiety, OCD and depression, shared pictures of the women in her life in a special ‘Galentine’s Day post, but opted not to include Pauline, 61.
The 62 year old posted a series of snaps of her Loose Women co-stars, Lesley Joseph and her family members, but Pauline was noticeably missing.
She captioned it: “A few (but not all) of my favourite gals #Galentine,” alongside heart emojis.

Fans realised Pauline’s absence and took to the comments section to ask Linda where she was.
One fan wrote: “Can we see one of you and Pauline,” with a red heart emoji.
A second passionately added: “The fact Pauline is missing is very disappointing. Friends should be able to conquer anything. The recent lockdown shows that friendship should mean something.
“50+ years. That must count for something. My best friend is everything to me, and we make sure we never sleep on an argument. Fix it. Now. You will regret.”
Another expressed: “Where is Pauline? Very sad,” with a teary eyed emoji.
It was previously reported that Pauline quit Birds of a Feather and is no longer speaking to co-stars Lesley and Linda.
A source told The Sun: “The nadir came during one astonishing row at Teddington Studios, culminating in Pauline and Lesley squaring off, noses centimetres apart, outside the women’s loos.
“They were basically pulled apart by stunned crew members. Things went rapidly downhill from there.
“It’s a sad ending to what was one of the most endearing and popular friendships on television. Linda doesn’t believe they’ll ever speak again,” the insider explained.
The trio’s friendship reportedly hit breaking point in 2019 when Pauline refused to return to film a 30th anniversary special episode of the show.
An insider previously told Mail On Sunday: “Both Linda and Lesley were saddened that Pauline didn’t want to return to make a 30th anniversary episode.
“Linda and Pauline used to be very close, less so Pauline and Lesley. I think Pauline resented the attention that Lesley got and it was very tense and difficult to navigate at times.
“Pauline wasn’t approached about the Christmas special. The atmosphere on the set had previously become difficult, there were real and tense issues.”
