The veteran host is not very happy...

Yikes! Carol McGiffin has slammed her old show Loose Women for their newest addition: controversial Katie Price.

The veteran panelist – who was a host on the show for ten years until 2013 – branded the panelists as ‘desperate’ for hiring the reality star.

Despite the fact Katie Price has made quite a big splash on the daytime panel show and impressed many fans, Carol believes the producers are using her massive following to bolster the show.

‘I don’t know what she’s doing there. But she’s got a lot of Twitter followers, and they’re desperate for viewers,’ she told a magazine.

Then she moves onto her ex-colleagues: ‘I can’t believe those women are sitting with her. Where’s their self-respect?

‘That’s why the show is so different, because they’re going for people with a lot of fans.’

So this is why they employ outspoken people on Loose Women. Still, she does know her facts about the show, considering she’s made 1172 appearances before leaving in the 17th series.

Katie Price have made some controversial comments on the show – including a badly worded admission that she would have aborted son Harvey at the time if she was aware of his condition – but she’s also taken up some worthy causes, like taking down the trolls targeting Harvey on the internet.
