Loose Women REDUCED to half-hour show this week - find out why

The show is usually 60 minutes long

Although fans of the Loose Women ladies can usually look forward to an hour-long show every Monday to Friday, an exception will be made for this week's episodes between Tuesday to Friday next week. Unfortunately for fans of the show, Loose Women will only air for 30 minutes to make room for airing the Royal Ascot 2019. Instead of their usual finishing time of 1:30pm, the show will wrap up at 1pm, leaving more time for the popular horse racing event.

The show will finish earlier than usual

This isn't the first time that Loose Women has finished earlier than usual this year, as it was also cut short at the end of May due to the Epsom Derby. At the time, viewers were disappointed that the popular chat show had ended early, with one writing: "Thank you @loosewomen for a great albeit short show girls damn you racing. Still plenty of laughs to be had though. Have a fun and fabulous weekend." Another person added: "Not impressed #loosewomen has been cut for the racing. Just stick it on another channel!" Luckily for fans of the show, it will be business as usual the following week!
