When I'm having to explain to our end of life care residents that despite people on TV filming things closely together , their relatives and friends can't visit them untill they are very close to actual death ... Sorry to post , I'm just genuinely baffled by life right now ...

I though loose women we’re just showing re-runs? But yes I completely agree with you. I find it baffling too that This Morning has somehow been deemed an ‘essential service’. Pretty sure I’ve missed absolutely nothing of any importance by not watching it...

Thank you for your replies , I'm glad it's not just me or my colleagues who have thought this .. some of our residents are fairly young ( 40's up ) and have full mental capacity , so are understandably questioning why it's ok for TV people to " socially distance" during current filming but they can't see their family or friends .. we spoke about it alot at work today with them , as a few were genuinely confused by why it's ok for rich TV presenters to go into work for what is in all honesty a non essential type of programme.
Even a gentlemen with a type of dementia asked why they aren't filming using it today's technology.. I genuinely had no answers to give them. It's very sad .
