Nicola Sturgeon fought to win the 59 Westminster Parliamentary constituencies in Scotland – in the end winning 48 constituencies. Politically, she is renowned for her no-nonsense and straight-talking attitude. But on Loose Women she was left a little flustered when the panellists asked her questions about her personal life. So what did the Scottish National Party leader reveal about one exchange about her husband Peter Murrell on the show?
Nicola Sturgeon, 49, is a Scottish politician who is currently serving as the fifth First Minister of Scotland and leader of the Scottish National Party since November 2014.
She is the first woman to hold the positions.
Ms Sturgeon first became an MSP in Scotland in 1999 first as an additional member for the Glasgow electoral region, then as a member for Glasgow Southside in 2007.
She was ranked as the 50th most powerful woman in the world in 2016 and as the second most powerful in the UK by Forbes.
The 49-year-old later opened up about not having any children.
The subject of children is something Ms Sturgeon has faced throughout her career.
She said: “From time to time, yes [I was judged for not having children].
“I was constantly asked about it. For a period of my life, almost every interview I did I got asked that question.
“It’s okay in your 20s and 30s, but later on it becomes a bit more intrusive.
“I went public about the fact I had a miscarriage some years ago.
“That was in part to play a small part in removing the stigma around miscarriage but also it was a way of, I suppose, me trying to stop getting asked that question.
“Men in politics that don’t have children very rarely get asked the same question.”
