Denise Welch doesn't expect Coleen to be replaced
Denise Welch doesn't think anyone will be employed to take over permanently from departing 'Loose Women' host Coleen Nolan
Denise Welch doesn't think Coleen Nolan will be replaced on 'Loose Women'.
The actress - who is a regular panellist on the daytime TV show - is sad her friend is quitting the programme but she doesn't think someone will take her place full-time.
Denise said: "I've known she's been ready to leave for a while. She lives five miles from me so I'll still see her socially. She'll be a loss to the show, but it won't make a difference to our friendship.
"I don't think they will replace her. They are constantly trying new people out. I love Sarah [Millican, the comedian]. The producers have to try to keep things fresh.
One guest host Denise wouldn't be keen to see is Katie Price.
The 52-year-old blonde thinks the former glamour model would be too difficult to manage to be a regular contributor, and she also thinks Carol McGiffin wouldn't be too happy working with her.
When asked what she would do if Katie joined the 'Loose Women' team, Denise told new! magazine: "Oh God, I don't think Carol would last long if she came on the panel. I can't say I would! I think she may be too high maintenance!"
Carol clashed with Katie during an appearances on 'Loose Women' in July 2009 when she refused to talk about her split from Peter Andre.
Carol said to her: "Most people are not interested in your book - they're interested in what's going on with you."
