Sir Alex Ferguson "watches Loose Women" with Man Utd legend intrigued by debates

Football legend Sir Alex Ferguson is a fan of Loose Women.

The former Manchester United boss would wax lyrical about the lunchtime ITV panel show to his friend Eamonn Holmes, whose wife Ruth Langsford is a regular guest.

Eamonn, 62, revealed: “He is very much a family man and he has always included Ruth in everything that has involved me, and he says he even watches Loose Women.

In new book Sir Alex: Simply The Best, which pays tribute to him having turned 80, Eamonn praised the most successful football manager ever for his kindness as well as his brain power. He said: “When you get to know the real Sir Alex, you realise that he is actually really ‘normal’.

“Of course, many take him one way, as he remembers if you have been good to him and he remembers if you haven’t.
