TV presenter and author Nadia will begin tomorrow (Thursday 10 October), while journalist Jane will start later this month.

Nadia said of her return: "Having been one of the original 'Loose Women' I'm thrilled to be invited back after a decade away. My time on the show has always held such special memories for me so I can't wait to rejoin the other women behind that famous desk - see you on Thursday girls!"

Jane added: "I'm absolutely thrilled to be rejoining the 'Loose Women' team and catching up with some of the funniest, most opinionated and loyal viewers in television. Bring it on!"

Director of ITV Daytime, Helen Warner said: "'Loose Women' at its very best produces rich and diverse debate on the issues of the day from a female perspective.

"I'm keen to broaden our pool of panelists over the coming months with a mix of past and new faces to bring this variety to our viewers every lunch time and I'm delighted to have Nadia and Jane, who were both trailblazers for 'Loose Women', as part of this."

Kaye Adams and Coleen Nolan are also returning to 'Loose Women'

The additions to the panel comes after it was announced that former panelists Kaye Adams and Coleen Nolan were returning to the show.

On Sunday, Denise Welch announced she had quit the show due to the on-going changes, adding that she believes the show won't be as much 'fun.

"I was hurt that the changes were made and kept a secret, and that the person responsible for the decisions hadn't come and talked to me about it," she told The Sunday Mirror.

"Every show needs a shake-up. But the way the show's going, I've felt that my wings have been clipped. I feel the way the show is going is losing the fun of it."

Long-serving panellist Carol McGiffin also recently quit the show after 10 years.
