Denise Welch, 64, shared a video of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, 50, having what appeared to be a singalong on Saturday evening at his hotel in the UK. The Loose Women presenter appeared to be highly unimpressed with all the merriment ahead of the Queen’s funeral.
The Waterloo Road star took to Twitter to share a post from Citizen Journalists, which read: “On the eve of the Queen’s funeral – Trudeau (in the UK for the funeral) parties.”
In turn, Citizen Journalists shared a video from Lisa Power, which was captioned: “Last night at the Savoy.
“Our PM in the UK representing Canada for the Queen’s funeral,” she added with a facepalm emoji.
“How do you say you were a drama teacher without saying you were a drama teacher?”
The video showed Trudeau leaning over a grand piano, accompanied by another man, singing Bohemian Rhapsody by the band Queen on Saturday night (not the eve of the Queen’s funeral, which was suggested by Citizen journalists).
Denise simply responded to all of this with a string of nauseated emojis, showing she did not approve of his behaviour.
Express.co.uk contacted Justin Trudeau’s representatives for comment and the Prime Minister’s Office issued the following statement: “After dinner on Saturday, Prime Minister joined a small gathering with members of the Canadian delegation, who have come together to pay tribute to the life and service of Her Majesty.
“Gregory Charles, a renowned musician from Quebec and Order of Canada recipient, played piano in the hotel lobby which resulted in some members of the delegation including the prime minister joining.
“Over the past 10 days, the Prime Minister has taken part in various activities to pay his respects for the Queen, and today, the entire delegation is taking part in the State Funeral.”
Twitter users took to the comments section under the original tweet to share their thoughts on the video, with Jo Walsh writing: “I don’t think the Brits are going to appreciate Trudeau partying on the eve of their beloved queen’s funeral. What a disgrace.”
While Victoria added: “Given the magnitude of the Queen’s funeral, given he’s supposed to be representing Canada, I’m no prude but please, some decorum and respect at least for a day.
“It’s always got to be about him #TrudeauMustGo.” (sic)
Meanwhile, Brian McKenna argued: “I’ve never understood being bothered by politicians being human and having fun.
“Further to that, being a teacher is a critical job and art makes us better.

“When people say ‘drama teacher’ as an insult, they lose more folks than they attract.”
Responding to the original poster, Dan Vanman commented: “He represented us fantastically there Lisa.
“The British press all said so. Could it be you just hate the man having a good time?
“Or was singing with friends on his own time written into the PM job no noes?
“I feel sorry for you, going through life looking to be negative,” he added scathingly. (sic)
The tweet comes after the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II today, which saw thousands line the streets of London to bid a final farewell to the monarch.
A two-minute silence was held across the United Kingdom to mark the end of her historic reign before she is laid to rest with Prince Philip.
The public funeral service took place today in Westminster Abbey at 11am.
