Carol McGiffin shares her "exciting" plans for New Year

The presenter is going to be in bed by 10pm!

New Year's Eve can be the best night of the year - or the absolute worst. And it sounds like Loose Women's Carol McGiffin has decided to play it safe.

The ITV lunchtime show tweeted a hilarious video message from the 58-year-old, where she revealed her "exciting" plans to see in the New Year...

Carol shared her night with fans, next to a tweet that read: "Happy New Year from our @McGiff - guess where she'll be at midnight?! 🎉 We'll see you again on Wednesday 2 January!"

I'm going to be in bed by 10pm!

She explained: "Happy New Year, everyone! This New Year's Eve, I will be [dramatic gasp] - oh my God, I'm so excited - STAYING IN! I'm not going out! I'm not drinking.

"I'm going to be in bed by 10 o' clock! And the next day, I'm going to get up and go out for a boozy lunch, while everyone else will still be in bed with a hangover. How about that?"

Carol - who will no doubt be joined in her early night by fiancé Mark Cassidy - finished the video by saying: "All the best for the New Year. And we'll see you back on this show on the 2nd!"

A third said: "I'm going out for first time since 2000, growing older disgracefully at 55 x." While a fourth wrote simply: "Happy new year 🥳 ladies xxxx."

One more agreed with her that a night in was the best idea, tweeting: "Happy new year and yes, me too, I'll be in bed, not going out to celebrate! Glad to see you back on Loose Women. Missed you, keep well and happy and safe 💓."

It follows a slightly wilder Christmas Eve, where the controversial presenter tweeted about staying up later than everyone else.

She shared a brilliant picture of herself stuffing her face with a sausage roll, and wrote: "Everyone’s gone to bed so it’s just me, a sausage roll and a glass of red.... perfect end to a perfect Christmas Eve! Merry Christmas everyone!!! 🎄🎄🎄."
