Lisa Maxwell says she was nervous about starting on Loose Women

Lisa Maxwell has admitted she felt like a "lamb to the slaughter" when she first joined Loose Women.

The Bill actress started on the ITV1 chat show last year and said she was terrified about joining the panel of gobby women, which includes Carol McGiffin, Sherrie Hewson and Denise Welch, among others.

The 46-year-old said: "I came in quite scared as I had no idea what was required of me."

She went on: "Really, you feel like a lamb to the slaughter because these guys are old hands, but then you go to the production meeting and they're so generous, they actually allow you to break though their chemistry."

Despite being a rookie, she was picked over other panellists including Lynda Bellingham and Coleen Nolan, to join Carol, Sherrie and Denise on a jaunt in New York for a Loose Women DVD.

"It's a shame because I've just come in for the best bit, haven't I?" she joked.

:: Loose Women is on ITV1 on weekdays. Loose Women In New York - Let Loose In The City is out now on DVD.

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
