All New Loose Women Launches With ‘fifth’ Member Of The Panel, New Set And ‘circle Of Trust’ Audience



LOOSE Women has had a dramatic makeover having moved to a new ‘interactive’ set – which even includes a ‘FIFTH’ panellist.

Ruth Langsford introduced the show’s new White City home to viewers on Monday, joking that someone had undergone a “face lift” during the weekend.

The new studio now features an upper audience and a lower one, which is dubbed the ‘circle of trust’

After confessing that she was talking about the studio, Ruth showed those at home that the audience now sits in two tiers.

Ruth then unveiled the newest member to the team – Loose Lipped Lucy.

Dubbed as a ‘fifth panellist’, the electronic red and white ticker will run throughout the show above the audience.

Ruth said: “There’s lots of changes and lots of exciting features you will see, including this – it’s Loose Lipped Lucy.

ITV Insiders have said the ticker can even display emojis

“Now, Lucy is going to be telling you all the exciting stuff coming up and sharing a few secrets along the way that we don’t even know about.

“Apparently I’m told she’s funnier than Coleen [Nolan] and more sarcastic than Janet [Street Porter], which is very difficult as you know.”

Monday’s panellists – Coleen, Jane Moore and Stacey Solomon – then made their entrance.

But rather than all walking onto the set together, as in previous shows, each star was introduced individually.

Jane, unfortunately, was first to experience teething problems with the set and took a slight tumble as she made her way to her new comfy chair.

She then laughed: “I just fell over. The step is higher!”

Ruth also admitted: “If you’re hearing clunking, things are still being built behind us!”

A source has since told The Sun Online that the revamped set will bring a whole new dimension to the show.

Commenting on the lower tier of audience members, which now also seats the show’s celebrity guests – rather than them sitting backstage – the insider said: “There’s a ‘circle of trust’ style inner audience, who are closer to the women.

“It will help with the intimacy.

“The women will all make a different entrance too, and each will have their own little wave or signature move as they come on.

“The stools they sit on are also new and have been specifically commissioned for the show.”

And referring to Loose Lipped Lucy, the insider added: “There is a new ticker which can react to the goings on among the panel – it’s sort of a fifth Loose Woman.

“Emojis can even run across it. It’s all pretty cool!”

Heidi Klum Splashes Out £3.5million On Lavish New York City Penthouse Apartment



HEIDI Klum has splashed out a whopping £3.5 MILLION on a luxurious penthouse apartment in New York City.

The model and TV judge is expanding her property portfolio which already boasts a £7.1 million mansion in California.

Hasten NYC/Compass Heidi Klum has shelled out a huge £3.5 MILLION for this rooftop apartment in New York

Splash News Heidi Klum will split her time between New York and Los Angeles

The 44-year-old’s latest investment offers unbeatable views of the surrounding Manhattan skyline.

Sitting atop a six-floor building, the property comes furnished with a subtle yet suave style.

Featuring polished hardwood floors and large windows, the New York apartment has no lack of natural light flowing through.

With three bedrooms and three bathrooms, the loft-space apartment will be the perfect base for Heidi and her four children.

Heidi is thought to have purchased the property back in February, despite her hectic schedule with filming commitments for America’s Got Talent.

The German-born model earned an incredible £15 MILLION in 2017, due to lucrative TV contracts and product endorsements.

This year will see Heidi return to the America’s Got Talent judging panel for the sixth consecutive year. She will be joined by Mel B and Simon Cowell.

The 44-year-old model recently made headlines when she posed topless for her debut Maxim cover shoot.

In her interview with the publication, Klum admits she worries about getting older – just like everyone else.

She said: “My nose would grow like Pinocchio’s if I said that I didn’t feel some pressure about ageing, as I am constantly asked about it.

“I’m in the public eye, and there’s more scrutiny because of that. I can look at photos of when I was 24, and of course I am going to look different now at 44 and having had four children – but, again, it’s about being comfortable with yourself and what you see in the mirror.

“I’m not trying to hold on to the past or searching for a fountain of youth. We are all going to age, so I’m trying to embrace that, but not without a bit of a fight.”
