Choreographer is excited about new role

Arlene Phillips has been signed up as a member of the Loose Women panel.

The former Strictly Come Dancing judge will appear on the ITV programme in the next few weeks.

She’ll be a regular on the show alongside Carol McGiffin, Kate
and Coleen Nolan.

‘I’m really excited about becoming a Loose Woman,’ Arlene, 66, tells the Daily Record.

‘I’ve often appeared as a guest and there was talk about me becoming a panellist.

Kate Thornton is a very close friend of mine and she kept saying, “You have got to do it!” and I thought, “Why not?”

‘I’ve got a lot to say about women. I think I’m most looking forward to getting into a passionate debate.’
