LOOSE Women's Denise Welch gushed she was "so proud" of her son Matty Healy and his band The 1975 as they wowed the crowds on Saturday Night Live.

The TV star, 64, jetted to America to watch the I'm In Love With You performers' "amazing" set on the US chat show, this week hosted by You actress Jenny Ortega, 20.

Matty, 33, and the band performed a host of their hits, including new album track Oh Caroline.

Denise's eldest son – who she shares with ex partner and Benidorm actor Tim Healy – showed off his impressive vocals and signature fancy footsteps as part of the routine.

She finished off her message with a red Emoji love heart.

Denise previously stunned fans when she cozied up to a huge US star during one of The 1975's gigs on home turf.

She dutifully supported her son as she enjoyed a celeb-filled night out at their sold out gig at London's O2 Arena.

But the group welcomed a special guest on stage at their gig, 11-time Grammy Award winning megastar, Taylor Swift.

And it seems the former Waterloo Road actress couldn't help but get in on the action as she cosied up to the worldwide superstar backstage.

Taking to social media, Denise posted an album of pics, headed up by the image of her together with All Too Well crooner Taylor.

The Hollyoaks actress was all smiles as she placed her arm around the World Record holding icon, as Florence Welch giggled in a photobomb the background.

Previously, she proved the ultimate embarrassing mum as she shared a picture of Matty starring in her music video.

She also previously bravely opened up about the height of her depression and an incident which saw her wish the plane she was travelling on with Matty would crash.

She said The 1975 frontman was just one-year-old during the terrifying episode, which occurred on a flight to Australia to visit then-husband Tim on the set of a BBC TV series.
