Having been on air since September 1999, Loose Women will mark its 2500th episode today with a special programme featuring panellists Andrea McLean, Katie Price, Nadia Sawalha and Kaye Adams.
To mark the milestone, viewers will see panellist Katie Price undertake a ‘wing walking’ challenge and fellow panellist and Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain has been asked to provide the Loose Women birthday cake. The show will also feature a few surprise guests and birthday messages from celebrity friends of the show.
Having been on the show since the early days, panellist Andrea McLean said: "Looking back I can't believe how far Loose Women has come. 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!”
Loose Women editor Sally Shelford said: “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."
