The former singer hasn’t appeared on the ITV daytime show since last year, and while she claimed he hasn’t been “formally sacked”, it seems producers are not intending to use her services as a panellist again.
She was said to have aggravated bosses when she claimed shops shouldn’t carry larger sizes and bigger people “should be made to feel uncomfortable when they go in and can’t find a size”.
Addressing her disappearance from the show, Jamelia told the Birmingham Mail: “I haven’t been formally sacked by ‘Loose Women’, as other people have been in the past, so I technically still have a job with them.
Last November, The Sun reported producers were trying to distance themselves from Jamelia, who actually made the comments 18 months earlier.
The specific incident in question happened in April 2015, when she said: “I don’t believe stores should stock clothes below or above a certain weight. [Bigger people] should be made to feel uncomfortable when they go in and can’t find a size.
“I do not think it’s right to facilitate people living an unhealthy lifestyle.”
When claims she had first been dropped made headlines, Jamelia told the Daily Star she was only on hiatus from the show, and believed she would be returning in January 2017.
HuffPost UK has contacted a ‘Loose Women’ spokesperson for comment.
‘Loose Women’ airs weekdays at 12.30pm on ITV.
