Kerry will discuss her own personal experiences with depression in order to raise awareness and help break the stigma around mental health.

"I'm so excited to be invited onto the Loose Women panel," she said. "I've always had such a lovely time with the ladies, so I'm back for more! Although Katie Price won't be there this time to spill all my secrets, I'm ready to let loose!"

Loose Women's editor Sally Shelford added: "Kerry has always been hugely popular with the Loose Women viewers. She's never been one to shy away from talking about the tough times she's faced. Her openness and courage talking about her battles with depression makes Kerry the perfect panelist to raise awareness of mental health issues as part of our 'Lighten the Load' campaign."

Making it extra special for Kerry is the fact her eldest children, Molly, 14, and Lilly, 13, will be watching from the audience.
