Kaye Adams revealed she was caught up in gunfire when trying to escape riots in Hong Kong.

The 56-year-old explained there was one moment she had to flee from danger, during her recent holiday.

During an appearance on Loose Women, she joked that co-star Nadia Sawalha had begged her to come home to safety.

‘There has been a lot of trouble out in Hong Kong recently, the protests have been going on all summer,’ she began. ‘But they did come to a head in the time that I was there.

‘On the last day, we were going around this tourist market, typical thing.

‘Suddenly I just saw people rushing towards me and I heard gunfire. I saw the tear gas and then felt the tear gas, it’s in the back of the throat and the eyes…’

Speaking about her instant reaction to flee, Kaye admitted she had no idea where to run to.

‘You go to run, as a tourist, and you don’t know where you’re running,’ she continued. ‘Because you don’t know this city.

‘Are you going to run into it? Do you run away from it?’

‘It’s not that I really feared for my life, but it was a real reminder that, in life, you can’t be too complacent.

‘A young Hong Kong gave me this mask and said, “Wear this and stay safe.”’

Kaye shared videos of the protests on her Instagram page, admitting things had become ‘too much’ and that it was ‘scary’.

The protests in Hong Kong have entered their sixth month, with more violence erupting in the city over the weekend.

Demonstrations started peacefully in early June, sparked by proposed legislation that would have allowed criminal suspects to be extradited to mainland China.

But by the time the bill was withdrawn, the protests had hardened and broadened into a resistance movement against the territory’s government and Beijing.

Loose Women continues on weekdays, at 12.30, on ITV.
