Loose Women’s Brenda was contacted by the Met Police after bravely sharing her domestic abuse story on-air.
During an appearance on Loose Women in September, Brenda Edwards broke down in tears.
She recalled how she’d been abused by an ex partner live on the ITV1 panel show.
On Monday, Brenda admitted she was contacted by cops after her appearance on the panel back in September.
She told Denise Welch and co today: “I was shocked and surprised when they got in touch.”
Nadia Sawalha said: “You were so brave and it’s not easy to talk about.”
“I just want to say thank you to the people who did get in touch to share their stories. Just talking helps,” replied Brenda.
“I found myself asking ‘what have I done to deserve this?'” Brenda said in September.
The panel were discussing an EastEnders storyline when Brenda spoke out.
She said: “I met this guy who was charming, gorgeous and said all the right things, always complimenting me on how I looked etc. But then i went to ‘why are you wearing that? You look awful.’
“Once we were having a conversation and he punched my door. He apologised so I thought maybe I did something wrong. The second time he punched the wall and I covered up for him, telling people the ironing board had fell on it.
“I still though ‘I’m fine, he’s fine, we’re fine’ and found myself asking what I’d done wrong.”
Brenda had counselling for what she went through and defiantly ended her account by saying: “When you cry it is not a sign of weakness; it’s you getting it out of your system.”
