Saira Khan has stunned fans with her recent comments about her former Loose Women co-hosts. 

The 50-year-old columnist, who announced her departure from the show within weeks of Andrea McLean's exit, shared her feelings about the remaining panelists in a recent interview. When the Celebrity Skin Talk host Scott McGlynn asked Khan if she planned to stay in touch with her ex-colleagues, she gave a surprisingly blunt answer. 

Without naming anyone in particular, it was clear that the former Apprentice star had no intentions to stay buddies with all of the women. 

"You make friends with some people, you tolerate some people, and some people you are just there to do the job with,” she revealed. 

Khan admitted she didn’t find it easy to get along with everyone on the show but held back on the juicy details. 

"I'm not going to go into the nitty-gritty here now,” she said. “There are some I will be close to because we get each other. And there are some I won't miss at all who I was just like 'I just have to tolerate you to do the job.’” 

The TV star spoke candidly about her experience on the panel throughout the interview. Although she praised Charlene White’s recent addition to Loose Women, she believes more needs to be done to represent the diverse British population. 

“The only way to educate people is to put them on the screen because I believe if you can see it you can be it,” she explained. 

With the current panel consisting of all heterosexual women, she has urged ITV bosses to replace her with an LGBT host

Despite her resignation from the show, Khan has no plans to hide away from the public eye. She is now turning her focus onto her beauty company, 'Saira Skin', as well as her writing and other media projects.
