The coronavirus pandemic has meant that we've been unable to watch our favourite Loose ladies over the past few weeks.
But the good news is that the stars of the hit ITV programme have been spotted rehearsing in the studio today – ahead of the show’s comeback tomorrow.
The Loose Women Twitter account posted a picture of Andrea McLean, Brenda Edwards and Linda Robson behind the famous desk. But, to ensure they adhere to social distancing rules, the trio can be seen sat slightly further apart than usual.
Alongside the picture, the caption reads, ‘Look who’s back! The #LooseWomen have been busy rehearsing and we can’t wait to see you on Monday.’
Naturally, fans of the show were thrilled to see the women back in action, with many expressing their excitement for the show’s return.
One happy follower replied to the picture, ‘Yey I have missed you all loads. Stay safe.’
ITV has been showing repeated episodes every lunchtime but, as of tomorrow, the Loose ladies will return for new shows.
Loose Women will be live on Mondays and Wednesdays with pre-recorded shows the rest of the week – in order to limit footfall at the studios.
To ensure the hosts are kept safe, the show will be operating in a new format, too. Just three women will be in the studio with one panellist joining from home via video link.
Commenting on the comeback, Emma Gormley – managing director of ITV Daytime – said, ‘We are thrilled to be able to bring Loose Women back for brand new shows in the studio from Monday.
‘As we continue to respond to the crisis and adapt our shows accordingly we’ve made some temporary adjustments to enable us to get back on air whilst ensuring the safety of all of our teams.
‘We know our viewers have missed their daily lunchtime catch up with the Loose Women and we look forward to hearing from them all on Monday’
