The 'Loose Women' are planning to take their ITV panel nationwide to shopping centres across the UK in order to get closer to viewers
'Loose Women' are planning a nationwide tour.
The hit ITV daytime series and its host of presenters - including regulars Ruth Langsford and Janet Street Porter and new stars Judy Finnigan and Gloria Hunniford - will travel the country's shopping centres to bring the panel show closer to viewers.
The move is reported to be an attempt by channel bosses to improve the show's popularity following a recent dip in ratings.
An insider told The Sun newspaper: "Bosses are always looking at new ideas for the show and they love the idea of a nationwide tour.
"It would be great to get the presenters out to shopping centres around the country to meet viewers face to face. "
Meanwhile, Judy - who previously vowed never to return to broadcasting after her talk show 'Richard & Judy' with her husband Richard Madeley's was axed - confessed she decided to make her TV comeback on the series as she thought it would be fun.
She said previously: "It's really odd, I hadn't planned it or thought. It was pure impulse. I had a really lovely summer and I was relaxed and happy and I've nearly finished my second book and I seriously thought, 'That sounds quite fun, I'd like to do that' ... And I'd like to talk to you lot."
