Former EastEnders actress Nadia Sawalha is to join the Loose Women panel following the departure of Denise Welch.

Nadia, who was an original Loose Woman when the show began more than 10 years ago, will be joined by newbie and journalist Jane Moore.

Earlier this week, Denise Welch revealed that she was leaving the ITV1 daytime show after bosses decided to shake things up.

Speaking to the Sunday Mirror, Denise said: "Yes, I've quit. I was hurt that the changes were made and kept a secret, and that the person responsible for the decisions hadn't come and talked to me about it.

"Every show needs a shake-up. But the way the show's going, I've felt that my wings have been clipped. I feel the way the show is going is losing the fun of it."

Nadia and Jane will begin their new roles on the panel on tomorrow's show (10 October) - and Nadia for one cannot wait!

She said: "Having been one of the original Loose Women I'm thrilled to be invited back after a decade away.

"My time on the show has always held such special memories for me so I can't wait to rejoin the other women behind that famous desk - see you on Thursday girls!"
