Another commented: “I think Gary Lucy might have taken her gum off before she showed up on LW. Doesn’t seem to be in her A game today does she? #LooseWomen.”

Another commented: “How did they let Gary Lucy in with gum in her mouth? Big no-no for a TV interview. #LooseWomen.”

Another fan lashed out, tweeting: “@loosewomen please tell Gary Lucy to get rid of that gum. It’s so rude and it’s not nice to see it floating in her mouth when she talks, let alone chewing on it while she talks.”

While another desperately urged: “@loosewomen tell Gary Lucy to spit out her gum. No one wants to see him circling around his mouth!!”

Gary previously explained to DigitalSpy that he agreed to return as Luke in Hollyoaks for one final season on the condition that they be allowed to explore frontotemporal dementia through his character.

He said: “I said I’d love to and we talked about it, and I basically suggested a story of young dementia – frontotemporal dementia is the medical term for that.”

Gary has played Luke Morgan on Hollyoaks since 1999.

“It’s never been done before and that’s what Hollyoaks is all about. It’s leading the pack when it comes to groundbreaking, heavy storylines. Luke’s male rape is obviously another one in the past, which was huge and very important. This was a huge chance to go back and finally end up with another story that’s basically a first, especially the young dementia.”

“I know other shows have done dementia stories and I know Emmerdale I had a history with the character of Ashley, which was amazing. But it also happens to young people. For example, one of the guys I went to school with had it and no one really understood what was going on. He is just heartbreaking.”
