Jamelia is hoping to return to the 'Loose Women' panel in 2017
Jamelia wants to be back on 'Loose Women' in 2017.
The 35-year-old singer - who has daughters Teja, 15, and Tiani, 11, from previous relationships - hasn't appeared on the daytime show for some time, but she insists that doesn't mean she's left for good.
When asked if she had quit the show, she exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "No, well basically I'm just not part of the show this season and who knows what's going to happen in January."
It was previously claimed producers had dropped the 'Superstar' hitmaker from the daytime talk show because of her controversial comments about plus-sized clothing.
A source said: "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."
Jamelia had previously said on the show in April that shops should be banned from stocking clothes "below or above a certain weight".
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."
