Spencer Matthews back for more after Loose Women grilling

Spencer Matthews only just survived his grilling when he joined the Loose Women ladies last month but he is set to return to the hot seat.

Luckily this time t he former Made In Chelsea lothario will be doing the interrogating as he joins actor Larry Lamb, who played nasty Archie Mitchell on EastEnders, as a guest panellist for the second instalment of Loose Women & Men on Friday.

I'm A Celebrity.. Get Me Out Of Here Now! presenter Joe Swash will be on hand as a roving reporter as the men join regulars Andrea McLean and Linda Robson to delve into the hot topics of the day.

Matthews said: "I've been referred to as a 'Loose Man' many times over the course of my life, but now for the first time I can be proud of it! Joining the lovely Loose Women team is a really exciting time for me - I can't wait to get started!"

Lamb joked that the experience could be educational for him.

"I'm really looking forward to getting on the panel - I'd like to think I might make a bit of a difference, maybe learn a little!" he said.

A flustered Matthews was quizzed by the panel in April about his relationship with Loose Women panellist Vicky Pattison after they met in the I'm A Celeb... jungle.

Katie Price asked him: "Was you proper official - look me in the eye - or were you just mucking about?"

Before he could answer, Price blurted out that Pattison had admitted to "doing the deed" with him.

Blushing, Matthews replied: "We weren't a couple, no, but when I was in Africa I thought it could be heading that way.

"She's a very lovely girl and she's made a very sensible decision in my opinion. We came to the conclusion - or she came to - and had each other's back."

The team say viewers can "expect lots of laughs and a few revelations along the way" in the show.

It follows a successful first instalment with men as guest panellists in January with Peter Andre and Craig Revel Horwood.

Loose Women & Men airs on May 6 at 12.30pm on ITV.
