A big congratulations is in order for Loose Women's Nadia Sawalha! The Celebrity MasterChef winner has landed her very own TV show about her family and love of cooking called Nadia's Family Feasts, which will air on ITV. The former EastEnders actress had been teasing some exciting news with her fans on Instagram on Monday morning and later made the announcement during a YouTube Live, alongside her husband Mark Adderley. The star said: "I am getting my own TV show called Nadia's Family Feasts!" She then went on to explain that she was still having to keep a lot of information under wraps, but that she couldn't help get excited when she found out her name was going to be in the programme's title.

She said: "When I went for the meeting with the producer and I was sitting there and were talking about the show. Because before I went for the meeting I thought I would be really cool. I asked what the show would be called and I went what, like, me? And then I was so excited! Maybe it's just egotistical but there is something really exciting about your name being in the title. So that's ITV, so thank you ITV, I love you." Nadia also revealed that her dad, actor Nadim Sawalha, was particularly proud, and her husband then asked whether he would be appearing in the programme with her. "I think Nadia's dad's going to be appearing in the show with you isn't he?" To which she replied: "Yes I hope so, but we can't say too much, but actually I don't think so yet. We can't say too much. But we know it's called Nadia's Family Feasts."
