Jane McDonald has revealed she is open to the idea of returning to ‘Loose Women’

The ‘Cruising With Jane McDonald’ star was a panellist on the ITV daytime show at various points across a 10-year period, before leaving for good in 2014.

Speaking to HuffPost UK ahead of the return of her Channel 5 documentary ‘Cruising With Jane McDonald’, she said: “Do you know, I had the best time on ‘Loose Women’ and I’m very, very fond of the show still.

“I know everybody who’s on it and it’s a great open door to go back if I need to.”

She continued: “Everybody on there is lovely and I’ve got a great relationship with them - the new ones and the old ones.

“It’s been a big part of my life over the years, so it’s nice I can nip back.”

Jane also confirmed she is still very much in touch with her former co-presenters, adding: “I do miss everybody on it, but we’re all on WhatsApp, so I know what everybody is up to.”

Asked if she would consider inviting the likes of Carol McGiffin, Denise Welsh, Carol Vorderman and Lisa Maxwell aboard one of her cruises for a special episode of her travel series, she laughed: “That would be hilarious but you wouldn’t be able to show it on air - that would just be too wild.

“It would never make the censor!”
