After going down an absolute storm with viewers at home, the 35-year-old was then asked back to be a panelist last week where she slotted right in with fellow presenters Andrea McLean, Lisa Riley and Stacey Solomon.

And it looks like the mum-of-one could be sticking around a lot longer as a source has revealed to CelebsNow that Samantha is keen to move back to Blighty for good in a bid to secure herself a permanent spot on the ITV show.

‘Samantha’s really enjoying being back at work in London’, the insider revealed.

‘She’s having a blast on Loose Women and thinks they’re all great. Although she’s currently based in the US, Sam’s looking to find a new home over here and is currently deciding between Dublin and London’.

The source then added: ‘Sam’s really keen to become a full-time Loose Women panellist. She’s hoping her recent guest panellist appearances have shown the producers what she’s made of’.

Samantha has also spoken out about her guest appearance, recently saying: ‘I genuinely had a ball doing it. I really like the girls. I love a debate and a back and forth conversation anyway. Baby steps. I’ll chance my arm. Let me see how I get on.’ Exciting stuff!

As well as making more TV appearances, Samantha has also been popping up at a load of showbiz bashes over the past few weeks which she’s been sharing on her Instagram page.
