Loose Women is taking a break from TV for the rest of the week! The daytime show, which usually airs every day and features a group of female hosts discussing important issues and interviewing guests, will take a break for the rest of the week while ITV covers the Cheltenham horse racing event, which takes place over four days this week. Ruth Langsford confirmed that the show will be back on 19 Monday, but fans have been missing the show, and took to Twitter to discuss the decision to take it off the air for a week.

Loose Womenwill be off air for a week

One person wrote: "Another day that #LooseWomen isn't on because of that stupid horse racing," while another wrote: "How dare they take my programme off for sport. This has to stop as from now." Others suggested that the show should have been switched to ITV2 instead of cancelled for the week, with one viewer tweeting: "Why can't @loosewomen be aired on ITV 2 this week if the racing is more important for ITV as has been done in the past for example when the budget was on LW was on ITV 2. It's bad enough when the soaps are rescheduled due to football but at least they are not taken off completely."
