Loose Women is back! After six weeks off air due to the coronavirus pandemic, the show's finally returning to our screens to discuss all the topical issues and stories with our favourite regular favourites. The ITV daytime programme has been running since 1999 and has seen plenty of faces come and go. So to celebrate its return, we've decided to take a trip down memory and take a look at the stars of the show back then and now – enjoy!


Andrea McLean

Before Loose Women, Andrea was a star of GMTV and has been a TV favourite since – here's the presenter in her early broadcasting days.
