Coleen Nolan will return to the 'Loose Women' panel next week and Kaye Adams will also return to the programme and share the anchor role with Carol Vorderman and Andrea McLean
Coleen Nolan and Kaye Adams are to return to 'Loose Women'.
The 48-year-old TV presenter - who was left devastated earlier this year when her sister Bernie Nolan died of cancer aged 52 - will return to the panel of the ITV daytime series on Monday (07.10.13) after quitting the programme in July 2011 after 11 years on the show.
She said: "After two and half years away, now feels like the right time to 'come home' to 'Loose Women'.
"I'm ready to embrace the show whole-heartedly again and return to the most special of places - the homes of our viewers.
"It's the public that have always mattered the most to me and the 'Loose Women' audience are the most loyal of all.
"They have been so supportive to my family during the devastating loss of our beautiful sister and I hope they'll be as pleased to have me back, as I am to be back."
Kaye was the original anchor of the show from 1999 to 2006 and she will share that role alongside Carol Vorderman and Andrea McLean when she returns to the programme later this month.
She said: "I felt privileged to have been one of the original 'Loose Women' and now feel doubly privileged to be invited back six years on.
"'Loose Women' is perhaps the only show on which you can be unapologetically female ... smart, sassy, sometimes stroppy, sometimes silly but always straight talking.
"It's the world and what matters in it through a female prism, a perspective we don't see or hear enough of, and I can't wait to play my part again."
Helen Warner, Director of ITV Daytime, said: "We are thrilled to welcome Coleen and Kaye back to the 'Loose Women' panel.
"They both played such a vital role in making the show a success and have been much missed by the other panellists and viewers alike."
