'Loose Women' 'Legends' Denise Welch, Carol Vorderman And Carol McGiffin To Launch Rival Channel 5 Series?

Former ‘Loose Women’ panellists Carol McGiffin and Denise Welch are reportedly close to signing a deal with Channel 5, to launch their own rival daytime show.

It has been claimed that bosses are hoping to recruit several other ‘Loose Women’ “legends”, including Carol Vorderman and Jane McDonald, to join the new ITV series, thought to be hitting our screens next year.

Over the past two years, several ‘Loose Women’ favourites have dropped out of the show, including Denise, Carol and Lisa.

At the time, Denise said her departure was due to producers making a number of changes to the format of 'Loose Women' that she felt she should have been consulted about beforehand, as one of the longest-serving panellists.

Since then, she's become involved in a public war of words with Myleene Klass, after she claimed in an interview that 'Loose Women' had become too "rant-y" and "post-menopausal" before her arrival.

The news of the potential Channel 5 series comes after it was claimed that Carol, Denise and Lisa were planning to tour the UK with their own show, which would include a mix of acting and story-telling from their ‘Loose Women’ days.
