Katie Price is a current panellist on Loose Women.

On today's programme – Friday, 29 April – current panellists, Andrea McLean, Katie Price, Kaye Adams and Nadia Sawalha, will mark their momentous milestone with a special episode featuring a daring challenge and a Bake Off cake.

Always game-for-a-challenge Katie will be testing her nerves by taking on a 'wing walking' stunt, while the most-recent Great British Bake Off Nadiya Hussain – also an occasional Loose Women panellist –will be whipping up a special treat.

Viewers will also see surprise guests and birthday messages from celebrities.

"Looking back, I can't believe how far Loose Women has come," said Andrea, who has been part of the series since 2009.

"When I joined the show nine years ago, we had just become a regular feature on ITV Daytime; a group of feisty, big-hearted women who weren't afraid to bare their souls, and their opinions, to the nation. Since then Loose Women has become every woman's best friend. We are there every day to talk about, laugh at and cry over the same things that our viewers do. We are one of them, and they are one of us!"

The show's editor, Sally Shelford, added: "Loose Women has been making our loyal viewers laugh, cry, and everything else in between since the show first started in 1999. Our 2500th show will be no different. Expect lots of memorable moments from our panellists over the years as well as creating some brand new ones with surprise guests and a challenge that will put Katie Price's nerves to the test. This will be one birthday party you won't want to miss."

Loose Women's 2500th episode - today at 12.30pm on ITV.
