Loose Women To Feature First Ever All-Male Panel In Honour Of International Men's Day

Marvin Humes will be on hosting duties for the very special episode of the ITV daytime show.

ITV has announced the panellists that will be taking part in Loose Women’s first ever all-male show.

For the first time in its 21-year history, Loose Women will be inviting four men onto the panel later this week, to commemorate International Men’s Day.

On Thursday, Marvin Humes will be hosting the show, with radio presenter Roman Kemp, singer Ronan Keating and Love Island comedian Iain Stirling also appearing on the panel.

The four men will be discussing the day’s big topics and interviewing Matthew McConaughey, as well as shining a light on male mental health, as part of Loose Women’s ongoing Lighten The Load campaign.

“With everything going on in the world right now there’s never been a more important time for men to be open and honest about their mental health,” Marvin said.

“I’m looking forward to anchoring the first ever Loose Men and raising awareness of the importance of men opening up like women do.”

Iain agreed: “We know that men typically find it harder to discuss their anxieties, especially with other blokes. I’m looking forward to changing the conversation and can’t wait to join the other Loose Men.

“Hopefully we can inspire any men watching to talk about their feelings too and not keep things bottled up. Also a huge thank you to everyone at Loose Women for allowing us to use their platform for this very worthwhile cause!”

Loose Women has previously welcomed men including Craig Revel Horwood, Robert Rinder and Peter Andre to the show for Loose Women And Men specials, as well as regular panellists’ partners like Joe Swash and Eamonn Holmes.

However, this Loose Men special is the first time that four men have been at the centre of the show.

Loose Men will air on Thursday 19 November at 12.30pm on ITV.
