Loose Women fans were dumped by Catherine Tate in Joannie Taylor’s character – aka her foul-mouthed Nan character – as she sat on the board promoting her new film.
Viewers couldn’t help but worry as they watched ITV’s daytime program and branded the comedy queen as ‘not funny’ and wished 53-year-old Catherine was interviewed as herself and not as her potty mouth character.
The star’s big-screen debut as her grandma is set to hit theaters this weekend – with ‘Nan’ from The Catherine Tate Show getting her own spin-off called Nan: The Movie.
And while the star raised some giggles by appearing on Loose Women on Monday and looking unimpressed in front of a panel of Ruth Langsford, Nadia Sawalha, Linda Robson and Carol McGiffin – love instead Bridge Denise Welch and Kirsty Alsopp – generally, the modifiers weren’t amused.
On Twitter, fans lined up to criticize the actress, with one line reading: “I like Catherine Tate but this is not funny #LooseWomen.”
Another complained: “#LooseWomen I love Catherine Tate as a person, but I must be getting older because I don’t find Nan funny anymore.”
Another viewer tweeted: “Eek. Not sure if Nan can expand into a whole movie…. This interview was packed with #LooseWomen” – with another claiming there was “wrong laughter” from the panel.
And another complained: “I want to see a proper interview with Catherine Tate. #Loose women.”
However, some viewers loved Catherine’s character appearance.
One person tweeted approvingly, writing: “OMG!!!!! Absolutely howling with Nan on #LooseWomen eager to see the movie. Ask for @RealDeniseWelch oh she’s @McGiff’s diva. ”
Another wrote: “Nan asked where Kirsty Allsopp was [crying-with-laughter emoji] #Loose women.”
And another begged: “@loosewomen keep Catherine Tates Nan like a woman who let loose all the time…. She will keep us all smiling. “
Catherine first introduced Nan to the world back in 2004 when she launched the BBC sketch series The Catherine Tate Show.
Since then, the character Nan has appeared in a number of TV adaptations – but her own big-screen film hits theaters on Friday.
The film will see Catherine reunited with Gavin & Stacey star Matthew Horne, who returns to play Jamie, the suffering grandson.
The Catherine Tate Show Aluminum co-star Niky Wardley, who famously played one of Lauren ‘Am I Bovvered’ Cooper’s best friends is one of the actors to play Officer Mahler.
Film director Josie Rourke previously told Digital Spy: “I think I speak for us when I say that my Gran spirit lives in Catherine Tate’s immortal Nan.
“I’ve enjoyed working with Catherine for many years on stage, and having her Nan in the film is a wonderful thing.
“This is her Nan, my Nan, all of our Nans. Let’s reclaim the wrath from the loathsome politicians and put it back where it belongs: with our Nans.”
