'Loose Women' legend Carol McGiffin has revealed the original line-up of ladies are desperate to reunite for a new show. 

The star, who served as a panellist on the ITV daytime show for 10 years, told Rylan Clark-Neal she would love to be on-screen with former co-stars Denise Welch, Carol Vorderman, Kate Thornton, Jane McDonald and Lisa Maxwell once again.

“We would love to because we’re all really good friends and in touch all of the time," she said on Wednesday (18 May) night's 'Up Late With Rylan'.

“We had something that was really special. We all genuinely liked each other – sometimes it was difficult to work with each other.

She continued: “We miss the camaraderie the daily gossip we used to have every day.”

Carol left 'Loose Women' in 2013, after she entered the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house, claiming that she'd run out of stories to tell. 

"It seems mad to quit one of the best jobs in the world - you talk for an hour with like-minded women and get paid," she said at the time. 

"But I felt I'd completely plundered my private life and exhausted my repertoire of anecdotes to the point of boring myself."

She has since been critical of the show, which has undergone a series of changes since her departure, telling Woman magazine: “It’s nothing like the show I worked on for 13 years. They should call it ‘Cosy Chats Around a Lilliputian Table With The Audience On Your Lap’.

“Good luck to them. They’ll need it, as the ratings are shit.”

Carol, who recently won her battle with breast cancer, later hit out at the decision to recruit Katie Price as a panellist, calling the show “desperate”. 

“I don’t know what she’s doing there,” she said. “But she’s got a lot of Twitter followers, and they’re desperate for viewers. I can’t believe those women are sitting with her.

“Where’s their self-respect? That’s why the show is so different, because they’re going for people with a lot of fans.”

'Up Late With Rylan' airs Monday to Thursday at 11pm on Channel 5.
