Carol McGiffin, 49, and McFly's Dougie Poynter, 31, are left red-faced as they recall sharing a 'VERY drunk' kiss 11 years ago

They are quite the unlikely pairing. 

Yet on Thursday's Loose Women, Carol McGiffin, 49, and McFly's Dougie Poynter, 31, recalled an incredible tale from 11 years ago when they shared a steamy kiss.

After they shared a clip of the big moment, the stunned panellist said: ‘We were pushed into it. Dougie was very polite about it', shortly before he said: 'I was so drunk that night! That was back in my drinking days!'

The McFly boys - also featuring Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones and Harry Judd - appeared on the panel show to chat about their reunion. 

While things started fairly PG, Carol soon recalled the hilarious incident which saw the duo form their incredibly unlikely hook-up. 

Back in 2008, Carol first revealed the news - much to the delight of fans and headlines, as the news tickled McFly lovers.  

At the time, she said: 'Poor boy! It must be like kissing your grandma. I watched McFly on T4 afterwards and Dougie said how horny he thought that kiss was. I found the quote on the internet and printed it out - I was going to have it framed.'

The big reveal comes after the Loose Women panelists were accused of hypocrisy after claiming women should get to retire earlier than men - to make up for not being paid equally during their working lives.

Following the High Court ruling that raising the state pension age for women to 66, in line with men, is not discriminatory, Kaye Adams, Nadia Sawalha, Kéllé Bryan and Carol discussed whether it's fair that women should be made to work later into life.

Nadia, 54, argued that the issue of equal pay needed to be dealt with before the age of retirement was raised, as the pay gap means women make less money in their working life.

However the presenter was met by hoards of comments, mainly from men, claiming that she doesn't want 'equality' and simply wants to 'have her cake and eat it'.

The debate followed the High Court ruling that means up to 4 million women must keep working after ministers raised their state pension age from 60 to 66.

Two women – Julie Delve, 61, and Karen Glynn, 63 – brought the legal challenge, arguing that the changes were discriminatory on the grounds of age and sex, and that they were not given adequate notice.

But two High Court judges dismissed their claims on all grounds, and yesterday's ruling means up to 4 million women must keep working after ministers raised their state pension age from 60 to 66.
