Loose Women has been cancelled for rest of the week – find out why

by Gemma Strong

More bad news for Loose Women fans. The ITV daytime show has been cancelled for the next four days to make way for live coverage of the Cheltenham Festival. It comes after Loose Women was pulled from the schedule last week – on International Women's Day – in favour of the Chancellor's first budget announcement. ITV will be broadcasting the horse racing competition from 1pm until 4.30pm from Tuesday to Friday, meaning fans will have to wait until 20th March until they can see the Loose Women ladies back on their screens.

Stacey Solomon opened up about a previous abusive relationship during Monday's episode of Loose Women

Monday's episode of the show aired as usual, and featured an emotional interview with Stacey Solomon, who fought back tears as she opened up about an abusive previous relationship. She told the panel that she doesn’t feel like she will ever be her full self again. "I was in an abusive relationship and it makes you forget who you are," the 27-year-old said. "I'll always be this weird version of myself." Asked how she used to be, Stacey replied: "I used to be less worried about everything. Less worried about what people thought of me. I was ok, quite confident. You do begrudge that person for taking that away from you."

Former panellist Jamelia has said it's unlikely she will ever return to the ITV show

Meanwhile, former Loose Women panellist Jamelia recently opened up her sudden exit from the show, and admitted it's unlikely she will ever return. The 36-year-old hasn't appeared on the panel since last October. It was reported at the time that she had rubbed ITV bosses up the wrong way by making controversial comments on plus-size women. "I haven't been formally sacked by Loose Women, as other people have in the past, so I technically still have a job with them,” the singer said. “But I haven't been on the show since those reports, so people will make of that what they will." She added: "The show is going in a different direction at the moment, and I don't seem to be a part of that narrative. I'm realistic. I doubt I'll be going back. But it's ok, as I am very excited about launching my own YouTube channel."
