Loose Women

About Loose Women

Airing after 'This Morning' every weekday on ITV, 'Loose Women' has gone on to become one of the channel's most popular shows.



During its heyday, it featured panellists as varied as Denise Welch, Carol McGiffin, Carol Vorderman, Jane McDonald and the late Lynda Bellingham, as well as interviews with showbiz legends like Dolly Parton, Britney Spears and Joan Rivers.

Currently on the panel are stars like Coleen Nolan, Janet Street-Porter, Jane Moore and Kaye Adams, who discuss the week's headlines in a straight-talking and direct fashion that has become typical of 'Loose Women'.

Over the years, the show has caused controversy on a number of occasions, such as when Coleen Nolan compared supporting gay rights to supporting ISIS, or Jamelia's comments about how plus-sized shoppers “should feel ashamed” of themselves.

Judy Finnigan was also met with a backlash when, during her debut appearance on the panel, called for viewers to forgive convicted rapist Ched Evans, saying that his attack on a young woman was a “non-violent rape”, and that he should be allowed to return to playing football professionally when his prison sentence ended.

Other stars currently on the panel include June Sarpong, Ruth Langsford, Andrea McLean, Saira Khan, Penny Lancaster, Jamelia, Gloria Hunniford, Linda Robson and Nadia Sawalha. 2016 also saw the likes of Katie Price, Vicky Pattison, Lisa Riley, Stacey Solomon, Martine McCutcheon join the line-up, as well as the departure of Sherrie Hewson.
