Bringing daytime television to new levels of quality, ITV today will unleash Katie Price as a regular panelist on talk show Loose Women.
“Katie Price has all the ingredients of a brilliant Loose Women panelist: she’s frank, feisty and not afraid to voice her opinions, together with being a successful businesswoman and inspiring mum. The Loose Women team can’t wait to welcome her as an official presenter in the New Year.” – Sally Shelford, Editor of Loose Women
The former model, who has previously appeared on the show as a guest, and last year as a guest panelist, is to join the long running daytime series as one of the rotating regulars. Price joins the Loose Women for her first stint on today’s programme (Tuesday 5th January) and vows to be “the most outspoken of them all”.
In an ITV promo to mark the show’s new signing, Katie is dressed as the Wicked Fairy from her recent panto performance of Sleeping Beauty, and warns: “Love rats watch out! Badly-behaved celebs beware, because it’s all about opinion and I’m won’t be holding back!” Preparing to give the other Loose Women a run for their money, she adds: “The Pricey’s always right! See you in January!”
Following her two successful appearances as a guest panelist in 2015, the forthright businesswoman will feature on the panel once a week to debate the stories of the day, alongside her fellow Loose Women co-hosts.
“I’m so excited to be joining the Loose Women panel in January. I’ve always been a huge fan of the show because it’s about real female opinions. I’m joining a fantastic team and, as usual, I won’t be holding anything back!” – Katie Price
The topical talk show, which mixes up-to-the-minute daily discussion on the biggest news stories with exclusive celebrity interviews and entertainment began life as an Anglia Television production in 1999. Former regulars include Cilla Black, Pattie Coldwell, Carol McGiffin, Jane McDonald and Lynda Bellingham.
