“Only a few special men have what it takes to be on the Loose Women panel,” said its editor, Sally Shelford, when she announced that Strictly Come Dancing’s Ed Balls and Judge Rinder were going to appear on the lunchtime show earlier this year.

“Men’s Specials” were first tried out in 2016 with Craig Revel Horwood and Peter Andre but while being “fun, feisty and not afraid to speak their mind” are important attributes, having performed on Strictly obviously isn’t essential as Larry Lamb and Spencer Matthews joined the women last year. Now it’s the potentially rather interesting combination of Andrew Flintoff and Gok Wan who join the panel.


The panellists round off the week with a Men special, with former cricketer Andrew Flintoff and style guru Gok Wan among their guests.
