Loose Women: Saira Khan jokes that Ranvir has to wear swimsuit

Loose Women panellist Saira Khan, 50, took to Instagram to announce she had decided to leave the show last Sunday, in view of her 90,000 followers. In a new interview she discussed her exit and thoughts about the show.

Saira candidly revealed she thinks more panellists should quit Loose Women as she admitted she didn’t tell any of them about her exit.

She said: “I actually think there are other women on that show who have had their time and they need to renew and refresh.

“I don’t mean anyone in particular, to keep that show fresh and relevant you have to look around and you know when your time is up.”

The journalist said she chose not to tell her co-stars about her exit because she “didn’t want a big drama”.

The former panellist also confirmed she will not be returning to the show for a farewell episode and to take a look at her “best bits”.

Reflecting on her time on the ITV afternoon programme, she addressed the trolling she had received about some of her opinions while on the panel. 

“At times I really put my neck on the line and got threats and abuse from the [Asian] community when I talking about tattoo subjects,” she added to New! Magazine.

Saira announced her depature from the show in an interview with Notebook magazine and on her Instagram page.

Sharing the cover on her social media, she told fans “it wasn’t an easy decision, but one that I needed to make in order to grow myself in other ways”.

She went on to say: “I came to the show a troubled soul and I will eternally be grateful for the platform @loosewomen gave me to share, speak up and out.

“I will miss the great women who have become my very close friends. I feel honoured and privileged to have sat alongside them and learnt from them.

“I leave the show feeling I’ve dealt with the baggage and now can enjoy moving forward to grow and enjoy new life opportunities, which includes growing my skincare business @sairaskinuk and exploring other Media projects.”
