Ruth Langford has shared her fears after taking her son to university during the LockDown.
Thousands of students isolate themselves in their rooms following an increase in corona virus cases at universities including Glasgow and Manchester.
The current situation has raised concerns that Christmas will not be able to return to their families.
Ruth also had a problem with Tuesday’s Loose Woman episode.
The TV presenter said she ‘lost’ after taking him to Uni, and she and her husband Emon Holmes dropped Jack off campus.
Ruth and Jack discussed the current situation before leaving and decided to take a step back at a time.
She added that it would be helpful for students to be in the lockdown together as they share the same experience.
Ruth told her fellow panelists Colin Nolan, Janet Street Porter and Zaira Khan: ‘I’m worried about Lockdown now. Jack and I talked about it, and we said we would take it as it came each day.
‘I hope that doesn’t happen, but teens are more ili energetic than we think. I don’t want to say it’s fun, but all together. ‘
The Morning Host revealed her mum’s advice, adding: ‘My mum said sitting in a nice room with your TV and phone is not a big deal. You got heating, light and water, so it’s not the end of the world when you look at it. ‘
Janet said complaints from people who feel their rights have been abused or limited “don’t play well with the elderly or people in care homes.”
Colin added: ‘When you were 18, wasn’t that difficult?’ Cyra said it was a shame to lose new students in Freshers Week entertainment.
There are currently no official formal laws in England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland, stating that self-isolated university students cannot leave their place of residence to return home now or at any other time.
Loose Women airs on working days from 12.30pm on ITV
