Jamelia has been axed from the 'Loose Women' panel after reportedly angering bosses over controversial comments about plus-sized clothing
Jamelia has been axed from 'Loose Women'.
The 35-year-old singer has been dropped from the panel of the all-female talk show after making some controversial comments about plus-sized clothing.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Jamelia really annoyed bosses with her comments on high street shops selling bigger clothes.
"The show is often close to the bone but those comments were the final straw.
"Loose Women's viewers come in all shapes and sizes and the producers don't want them to be offended."
The decision to kick the 'Superstar' singer off the panel follows comments she made in an episode of the show which aired in April.
She said during the episode: "I think everyone should have access to lovely clothes, but I do not think it's right to facilitate people living an unhealthy lifestyle.
"I don't believe stores should stock clothes below or above a certain weight. They should be made to feel uncomfortable when they go in and can't find a size."
It's not all bad news for the 'Thank You' singer though, as she's picked up another job with ITV, on 'This Morning'.
The star now presents a segment - which aired for the first time last week - in which she focuses on beauty for black women.
The news of Jamelia's departure from the show comes after it was recently revealed that fellow panellist Katie Price was going to be taking a break from the programme to work on her marriage to Kieran Hayler.
A source said: "Bosses are trying to steer well clear from all the drama in [Katie's] love life."
A spokeswoman for 'Loose Women' said: "Jamelia is currently filming some new items for 'This Morning' and Katie will be back on the panel after her break."
