The Duchess of Cornwall revealed she is an unlikely fan of Loose Women during a visit to the ITV studios to mark the broadcaster's 60th anniversary.

Greeted by presenters of the gossip show, Camilla said: "I recognise you all."

Asked by regular host Ruth Langsford whether she would like to join the panel, she laughed: "I think I would be a liability."

Loose Women presenter Janet Street-Porter later said: "She told us she was a fan of Loose Women and watches the programme. I think she would be a great panellist.

"She fits the bill; she's the right age, firstly."

Camilla toured the newly refurbished ITV riverside studios at Waterloo, meeting presenters and staff from This Morning, Good Morning Britain and Loose Women to mark the anniversary.

An ITV birthday cake took her fancy, and she warned the host of presenters: "What I would really like to do is stick my finger in it, but I shall resist."

Speaking afterwards This Morning host Philip Schofield joked: "That was a moment I thought it was all going to go off the rails."

Camilla briefly appeared live on television in the opening credits of This Morning from the show's gallery.

Giving her royal seal of approval, she told Schofield and co-presenter Holly Willoughby to "please continue".

Her visit came as the Royal Family celebrated its own milestone, with the Queen becoming the UK's longest reigning monarch.

In a reception with famous ITV faces from the last six decades, This Morning presenter Eamonn Holmes said: "Camilla told me she thought it was a great day for the Queen, a marvellous day."

Among other stars she chatted with were Birds Of A Feather trio Linda Robson, Pauline Quirke and Lesley Joseph, who Camilla said she grew up watching on television.
