“The show is going great guns – really got its mojo back. I look forward to going into work every day. Katie Price has brought a different energy to the show. She’s just brilliant. It’s the first time she has been part of a group of women before –and she’’s a huge team player,” she revealed.

The 47-year-old also spoke about the bond she shares with other members of the Loose Women panel.

“My favourite is Linda. She mother hens all of us. But we genuinely all get on well. A few weeks ago Stacey [Solomon] organised a spa day so a load of us went. We stayed the night and by 11 o’clock that night, Stacey was on the piano and we were singing!”

Sounds like a hoot!
