Ex-Loose Women star Saira Khan has reportedly unfollowed some of her former ITV colleagues after confessing she only "tolerated" them during her time on the show. 

The former Apprentice star no longer follows Nadia Sawalha and Kaye Adams, but still follows Stacey Solomon, Ruth Langsford, Coleen Nolan and Denise Welch. 

It comes after Saira, 50, admitted, "You make friends with some people, you tolerate some people and some people you just have to do a job with."

"I'm not going to go into the nitty gritty there now. There are some friends, people I will be close to because we get each other.

"And there are some I really don't miss at all who I was just like: 'I just have to tolerate you to do the job.'

"You have to be professional about it. You can't pretend that everyone is going to be your best friend.

"Especially on a show where you have opinions, you're not going to tolerate everybody's opinion.

"That's fine, that's not a problem. You just do it with respect and you have to be be open minded."

Saira's departure appears to have ruffled some feathers among the remaining Loose Women ladies, including Nadia, who ignored reports Saira had unfollowed her and gushed about those colleagues she is closest to.

Alongside a snap of her with Judi Love, Stacey and Kaye, Nadia thanked the entire team behind Loose Women for making the show happen.

"As always me @kayeadamsofficial @staceysolomon and @1judilove had so many lovely messages! Now, don’t get me wrong we love getting the luuuurve !!

BUT, maybe we get more than our fair share ( steady Nadia !) Its the nature of this business we call show ,that it’s always the people in front of the camera that get the 👏 👏👏👏👏👏 when in reality it takes a great team behind the scenes as well to make a good show ! And that’s been the way on @loosewomen for the last twenty years !!"

Saira's departure from the show came just weeks after Andrea McLean also bid farewell to the Loose Women ladies.
