Who is on Loose Women today? It's often a question we ask ourselves, as weekday TV wouldn't be the same without the regular daily fix of ITV daytime show Loose Women.

Those who have ITV switched on all morning will have the benefit of tuning in to Lorraine, followed by This Morning and then Loose Women for bumper episodes featuring celebrity guests, the latest news, and fashion plus cookery segments.

The lunchtime chat show is currently in its 10th season, after launching in 1999. It features a rotating panel that is made up of women from the entertainment and journalism worlds who discuss issues from a female perspective. Among the topics regularly covered are politics, current affairs, and the latest gossip. They are joined in the studio daily by celebrity guests and faces behind the headlines.

Loose Women scooped Best Daytime Programme at the RTS awards and if you're wondering who is on Loose Women today, fear not as we have the answers...

Who is on Loose Women today?

Friday, 8th December sees the return of Loose Women panellists Kaye Adams, Gloria Hunniford, Nadia Sawalha and Jane Moore. They will be talking about the day's hottest topics.

The show has previously seen a shake-up to its schedule and some shows pulled off air with fans asking Why isn't Loose Women on today? 

It is usually broadcast live from 12.30 pm-1.30 pm on ITV and is available on catchup on ITVX.

Who are today's Loose Women guests?

Strictly Come Dancing star Angela Rippon is a guest on Loose Women today to reflect on her time on the show. The Loose Women panel has different celebrity guests each day and you can find out which stars will be appearing on the show as they are announced towards the end of the previous day's segment so listen carefully just before 1.30 pm when the women will tease who they will have joining them on the following days' show. The show often tweets details of its guests and asks viewers to get involved with its daily polls - as they ask you for your thoughts on the talked-about topics.
