Andrea McLean is returning to 'Loose Women' on Monday (07.11.16) following her hysterectomy operation.
The 47-year-old brunette took a break from the daytime chat show six weeks ago to have surgery to remove her womb and now after spending time at home convalescing she is coming back to take her seat on the panel and will open up on the "personal reasons" for her surgery.
Andrea's co-star Kaye Adams made the announcement on 'Loose Women' on Friday (03.11.16) confirming that she would be back before revealing Andrea had sent viewers a sweet video message.
Andrea looked really well in the clip as she shared her excitement to be coming back to the panel.
She said: "Hi everyone, I just wanted to say I'm so excited about coming back to work on Monday. I've really missed you."
Holding up a pair of heels that will soon be releasing her slippers, she added: "But most of all, I can't wait to stop wearing these and start wearing these ... See you Monday, bye!"
Andrea had hoped to return to work much sooner but she was forced to delay her comeback a few weeks ago as her body hadn't fully healed from the surgery.
Over the last few weeks she has been healing at home with the support of her partner Nick Feeney.
In a previous interview, Andrea - who has son Finlay, 15, with her ex-husband Nick Green and daughter Amy, nine, with her second spouse Steve Toms - said: "I was meant to go back to 'Loose Women' after a month but after a few weeks I was nowhere near ready. The production team and ITV were so supportive and told me to come back when fully ready. I want to be firing on all cylinders and ready for action when I'm back!"
Next year, will be Andrea's 10th anniversary at Loose Women and her 20th year of working at ITV.
