'I'm ready to let loose!'

Kerry Katona is staging a comeback as a 'Loose Women' panellist, 12 years after she was last a presenter on the ITV chat show.

The Atomic Kitten singer is taking up a seat in a guest role on the panel on Wednesday (11 May), for a special episode centred around mental health.

Appearing alongside regulars Coleen Nolan, Sherrie Hewson and Gloria Hunniford, Kerry will open up about her own battle with depression, as part of the daytime show's 'Lighten The Load' campaign.

She will also be joined by her teenage daughters, Molly and Lily.

Speaking of returning to the show, Kerry said: “I'm so excited to be invited onto the 'Loose Women' panel. I've always had such a lovely time with the ladies, so I'm back for more! Although Katie Price won't be there this time to spill all my secrets, I'm ready to let loose!"

Kerry originally served as a 'Loose Women' panellist between 2003 and 2004, and has returned as a guest on several occasions, including a recent appearance where she revealed details of her split from husband George Kay.

The star previously admitted she was chasing a return to 'Loose Women', telling the Daily Star she wanted to sit alongside pal Katie Price on the panel.

“I’d absolutely love to do the show again - that would be perfect for me," she said. “I think me and Katie Price together would be pure TV gold.”

'Loose Women' airs weekdays at 12.30pm on ITV.
