More changes for Loose Women – Daily TV round-up

Nadia Sawalha and Jane Moore rejoin the panel.

Nadia Sawalha and columnist Jane Moore have been added to the line-up for the new look 'Loose Women', it's been confirmed.

Sawalha, who was among the original hosts, rejoins the show today, while Moore will reappear on the ITV chat show later this month.

“Having been one of the original Loose Women I'm thrilled to be invited back after a decade away,” said Sawalha.


“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!”

Added Moore: “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!”

It follows news that Denise Welch had sensationally quit the show after more than a decade, claiming that changes on the show were made behind her back.

“I was hurt that 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.

“She must have known how I felt. When you have invested ten years in a job our views should mean something and our feelings should be taken into account.”

It's the latest in a series of changes that have been made to the popular show.
