Nadia Sawalha has said she's hoping more people will see the real Katie Price on Loose Women.

Former glamour model and last year's Celebrity Big Brother winner Katie has joined ITV's Loose Women as a regular panellist appearing once a week on the show.

Talking about having Katie on board, Nadia told reporters at the National Television Awards: "It's really exciting. I've always really loved Katie. I want more people to see what she's like backstage - she's a very sweet, lovely girl.

"She's a woman's woman and a lot of people don't realise that."

Meanwhile, Katie said: "We were in Celebrity Big Brother together and now we're filming together. It's amazing that I'm part of the new team. I'm so honoured to be part of it and they've all done a great job."

Katie, who already had two successful appearances as a guest panellist last year, said in December that she "won't be holding anything back" as debates stories of the day once a week.

Meanwhile, Sally Shelford, editor of Loose Women, previously said: "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."
