Andrea Murdoch featured on last night’s show as part of a confessional game dubbed Coronation Deceit, where she was confronted by some of the bad things she’d done in her life, before being rewarded with a free Mediterranean cruise.
Viewers blasted the family show after Andrea was seen laughing and joking as it was revealed she once faked an injury in order to get three months off work to go on holiday to Italy.
A friend of Andrea’s has spoken out to defend her actions, insisting that she should be forgiven because it happened so long ago.
A source said: “It was donkey’s years ago that it happened. People need to get a grip and let her enjoy it.
“She’s not a barmaid, she’s had barmaid experience all her life but now she owns a hotel, the Hotel Commodore in Llandrindod Wells.”

Andrea’s staff flocked to social media to defend their boss, with one writing: “She’s such a good boss that her staff wouldn’t scam her.”
The same individual also bragged about how Andrea had already been all around the world on cruise ships, and evidence of her luxury holidays are spinkled across her public social media profiles.
After being hit by the backlash from the show, Andrea slammed those who criticised her actions.
“How wrong are all of you!!!!” she told the Mirror before admitting that she lied over her injury in order to ‘keep her job’.
“This was over 20 years ago and did not get paid I did lie about my operation but only to keep my job when I got back over 20 years ago.
“I now own my own business and work for myself. So all you haters get your facts right before you comment!”
