Loose Women rotates its presenters, with names such as Christine Lampard, Coleen Nolan, Nadia Sawalha, Stacey Solomon, Ruth Langsford, and Brenda Edwards taking to the studio.

Thursday's show saw Charlene White, Frankie Bridge and Jane Moore take the reins, with Charlene breaking the good news to viewers at home.

"From Monday, we will be back to four! Yay! It's been 13 months," she said. "Because it's the relaxing of the rules, we're getting a brand new socially-distanced set.

"This is especially special for Frankie and I as there are ladies on the team that we've never met, like Kelle, we've never met in the flesh."

Frankie added: "I feel like I know everyone so well now so it's going to be nice to actually see them."

Only three women have been in the studio over the past 13 months

In March 2020, Loose Women, alongside Lorraine, was taken off the air completely for a short period after ITV cancelled the show as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.

In a statement, the broadcaster wrote: "ITV Daytime has taken the decision to stop broadcasting Lorraine and Loose Women live from Monday 23rd March. This decision has been made to minimise the number of staff travelling in and out of our studios and working together on shift at any one time.

"We're focusing our efforts on providing to viewers the latest news on the rapidly changing situation which aims to offer some stability and continuity in all our lives whilst so many of us are at home right now. That’s why we have taken this tough decision to protect our GMB News programme in the morning and keep This Morning on air for as long as possible."
