Loose Women fans praise all-Black panel as a "breath of fresh air"

Viewers called for the panel to present the show more regularly.

Daytime TV show Loose Women has been praised for having an all-Black panel of women on the programme.

TV presenter Charlene White led the panel and was joined by singer and actress Kéllé Bryan, comedian Judi Love and singer Brenda Edwards.

This isn't the first time this particular line-up graced our screens. The four presenters made history last October when they hosted the first all-Black panel on the series.

The women discussed a number of topics including holidaying with your ex-partner, and Prince William and Kate Middleton's new YouTube channel.

The panel then interviewed Stuart Lawrence, whose brother Stephen was murdered in a racially motivated attack in 1993.

Fans were pleased to see an all-Black lineup on the long-running chat show. Many on social media described it as a "breath of fresh air".

One Twitter user wrote that the show was "over far too quickly".

Others called for this line-up to be programmed every day.

Additionally, the presenters were happy to be back in the studio together.

"We can't hug because of Covid restrictions," host Charlene said at the start of the show. "But I did cry because I was super emotional this morning."

Kéllé added that the women had a "lovely little socially-distanced moment" this morning.

Judi, meanwhile, said that it was "just lovely" to be in the studio with the team.

Unfortunately, the line-up was targeted with some racist abuse on social media as well. Fans of the show, however, were quick to defend the presenters.

"It's sad that these women can't do their jobs without racists making comments," one fan said. "What is wrong with people? It's 2021."
