Variety! ITV has announced that Loose Women & Men is back with a new episode, airing this Thursday
“It’s going to be great fun!” Regular panellists Judi Love (43) and Denise Welch (65) will be joined in the studio by Iain Stirling (35) from Love Island and Richard Madeley (67) from Good Morning Britain
“Richard and Iain represent two generations of the modern man and we can’t wait to hear their views on some classic Loose topics in the studio.”
The special episode comes after Loose Women viewers called for Loose Men to become a permanent fixture on the show following an all-male panel featured on the show last year.
The ITV series occasionally features a male panel, with one episode last year featuring Andi Peters, Jordan Banjo, Ore Oduba and Shaun Wallace.
The all-Black panel, which appeared during Black History Month last October, discussed topics such as body dysmorphia and the last time they cried during the episode, with many viewers calling for men to appear more often on the show.
One viewer said: “#LooseMen should be a regular weekly agenda. “Maybe once a week men’s opinions/perspectives count too!”
Another wrote: “#LooseMen should be active every day for me please. Much better, God loves her xx.”
One viewer added: “I love #LooseMen today.” I wish we could do this show every Friday or one night a week to continue to give men the opportunity to have conversations and have a place where they can lead them.”
Another wrote: “ITV should definitely make #LooseMen a regular thing, I love it!”

The Loose Women continued their UK tour last Wednesday when they took to the stage in Newcastle led by Denise, Linda Robson, Jane Moore and Charlene White.
Denise took the stage and pouted at the audience while her co-stars sat on the desk with martini glasses.
Jane, 61, went for gold in a stunning glitter dress and platform shoes, while Linda, 65, meant business in a velvet suit with a glitter top.
Charlene, 43, was a world away from her newscaster look as she wowed in a green sequin dress, a dramatic black bow at the neck and a slit down the leg.
Linda and Charlene put on an energetic show as they danced around the stage together to loud laughter before the group posed together backstage.
Meanwhile, Frankie Bridge and Christine Lampard put in a sensational performance on Friday as they led the exits on the Loose Women Live Tour.
The former The Saturdays singer, 34, and the TV presenter, 44, both opted for black for the trendy event at the Opera House Theater in Manchester.
The couple caused a stir when they were asked for selfies and autographs as they left the opera house in Manchester.
