Nolan and Adams back on Loose Women

Coleen Nolan will be back on Loose Women

Coleen Nolan and Kaye Adams are to rejoin the panel of ITV daytime show Loose Women.

Coleen - whose sister Bernie died after a battle with cancer earlier this year - will return to the show as a panellist after leaving the programme in 2011.

Kaye was one of the original presenters when the show launched in 1999 and will come back to join Carol Vorderman and Andrea McLean as anchors of the hour-long weekday programme in which the presenters discuss issues of the day and chat to guests.

She said: "I felt privileged to have been one of the original Loose Women and now feel doubly privileged to be invited back six years on.

"Loose Women is perhaps the only show on which you can be unapologetically female - smart, sassy, sometimes stroppy, sometimes silly but always straight- talking. It's the world and what matters in it through a female prism, a perspective we don't see or hear enough of, and I can't wait to play my part again."

Coleen, who marks her return on Monday, said: "After two and half years away, now feels like the right time to come home to Loose Women.

"I'm ready to embrace the show wholeheartedly again and return to the most special of places - the homes of our viewers."

She added: "It's the public that have always mattered the most to me and the Loose Women audience are the most loyal of all. They have been so supportive to my family during the devastating loss of our beautiful sister and I hope they'll be as pleased to have me back, as I am to be back."

Helen Warner, ITV's director of daytime, said she was thrilled to welcome the pair back and went on: "They both played such a vital role in making the show a success and have been much missed by the other panelists and viewers alike."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Libra:

Don't let a manipulator take advantage of you. Someone with a sob story will ask for money or favours. Be prepared to turn them away. Although you want to be gracious, it simply isn't wise to give assistance to people with bad motives. Other people have warned you about this trickster. Take their advice. There's often a good reason why a person has a bad reputation. If anyone dares accuse you of being selfish, stay strong. You have a right to use your hard earned money for your own benefit.More
