How Loose Women challenges attitudes to women on TV

We headed behind the scenes to catch up with TV's most opinionated panelists and find out what they really think about how women are portrayed in the media

Loose Women (ITV)

Since 1999 Loose Women has been putting female voices to the fore on ITV. But two decades after its debut it remains the only dedicated panel show presented by women, for women, on daytime TV.


We headed behind the scenes of the ITV series ahead of the 20th anniversary to catch up with Andrea McLean, Stacey Solomon, Nadia Sawalha and Kaye Adams to find out why Loose Women has proven such a success and discover what it’s like to be a woman in the TV industry today.

The fearlessly opinionated panelists didn’t hold back and provided us with plenty of food for thought on ageism, sexism and much, much more.


Loose Women airs every Monday to Friday at 12.30pm on ITV
