Loose Women's return date revealed amid ITV schedule shake up following Queen's death | The Sun

LOOSE Women has been off air since the death of Queen Elizabeth II, but its return date has now been confirmed.

Bosses for ITV have said the popular lunchtime show will be back on televisions in its usual 12.30pm slot tomorrow (Thursday September 15).

The programme will run for its full hour slot and will begin once This Morning has finished for the day.

Loose Women was first pulled from ITV's programming schedule last Friday following the death of the Queen aged 96.

The previous day, panelist Nadia Sawalha had been on air with her colleagues when news broke that the monarch was gravely ill.

Nadia later told her husband Mark in a YouTube video that they had no clue about what was unfolding.

"It was a strange day. We came off air from Loose Women – you're in a bubble there and don't know anything that's going on.

"I came downstairs and the whole production team were very quiet. I was like, 'What's going on?'

"They said they didn't know all the way through the show whether they'd have to pull it. It was strange."

ITV, along with the BBC, has dramatically shaken up its scheduling since the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.

The stations have both been adapting their running order on a daily basis out of respect for the late monarch.

Various services and significant events, such as King Charles' ascension to the throne and a royal procession through Edinburgh, have been covered on the channels.

On Tuesday, This Morning returned to its regular ITV time slot of 10am with a special tribute show hosted by Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.

It finished 30 minutes early, however, for an extended ITV News Special that covered The King’s Tour – Northern Ireland.

Today (Wednesday), This Morning aired from 10am until a later time of 1pm, before ITV switched to an extended ITV News Special which covered Queen Elizabeth II – Lying In State.

But this meant Loose Women had to be cancelled once again.
