Loose Women has been off air during the coronavirus lockdown, but it is set to return to screens next Monday with its first live show in six weeks.

ITV has been showing repeat episodes of the popular show every lunchtime, but the ladies will return to screens with new shows from Monday 4 May at 12.30pm.

Adhering to all of the necessary social distancing requirements, there will be some adjustments to the broadcast of Loose Women during this first phase of returning to air.

The show will be live on Mondays and Wednesdays, while there will be some pre recorded shown the rest of the week to limit the footfall at the ITV studios.

Loose Women Editor, Sally Shelford said: "At Loose Women we have made it our mission to stop the stigma and start a conversation about mental health, covering issues from postnatal depression to anxiety and addiction.

"With many of our viewers struggling with lockdown, speaking openly and honestly about mental health worries to offer comfort and advice has never felt more important."

Emma Gormley, Managing Director, ITV Daytime said: "We are thrilled to be able to bring Loose Women back for brand new shows in the studio from Monday.

"As we continue to respond to the crisis and adapt our shows accordingly we’ve made some temporary adjustments to enable us to get back on air whilst ensuring the safety of all of our teams.

"We know our viewers have missed their daily lunchtime catch up with the Loose Women and we look forward to hearing from them all on Monday."

Loose Women returned for a special episode for NHS day two weeks ago, with Stacey Solomon and the rest of the panel broadcasting from their homes.

Stacery was joined by Christine Lampard, Brenda Edwards, and Nadia Sawalha as they broadcast from their homes for the pre-recorded special as part of ITV’s NHS Day.
