Jane McDonald is returning to 'Loose Women'.
The 48-year-old singer - who quit the ITV1 daytime show in 2010 to concentrate on her music career - will become a regular member of the panel when the series returns to screens in January following its traditional break over the Christmas period.
She said: "It's such a privilege to return to 'Loose Women'. I am so thrilled to be able to work with the girls again and to be back with the viewers.
"Ever since I left the show, I've been inundated with people asking me when I'd go back. I've been so humbled by the public's response. Even at my last concert, the audience were shouting, 'We want you back on 'Loose Women'!"
Jane will join the likes of Carol Vorderman, Denise Welch, Janet Street Porter, Carol McGiddin and Andrea McClean as a regular panellist, and ITV1 bosses are "thrilled" to see her back on the show.
Sharon Powers, executive producer of 'Loose Women', added: "I am thrilled that Jane McDonald will be returning to the 'Loose Women' panel.
"She has been truly missed by her fellow panellists and the viewers, and we couldn't be more delighted that Jane will be back in the 'Loose Women' fold."
