Loose Women joined by new Loose Men for Bank Holiday Monday show

It's going to be a tight squeeze on that desk!

Things are about to get very messy on Loose Women as a host of male stars – including Joey Essex, Martin Kemp and Joel Dommett – invade the studio for a day of bank holiday fun and games.

The Monday special will be transformed into the ultimate game of truth or dare, which will see some of the newcomers choose cream pie fights and fish smoothies over confessing secrets from their love lives.

When The Only Way Is Essex (Towie) star Essex is pushed to confess which of his celebrity flings he was most attracted to out of his reality co-star Sam Faiers, Made In Chelsea’s Stephanie Pratt and model Amy Willerton, he chooses a dare that gives him the chance to “pie” the “most annoying” ITV show panellist.

A shocked Andrea McLean is named first in the firing line, but wastes no time in returning the gesture while complaining: “How dare you find me the most annoying!”

Elsewhere, Spandau Ballet’s Kemp opts to down a glass of pureed fish rather than admit to how many women he slept with during his musical heyday.

But viewers will be able to tune into some more serious discussions as the full team, including regulars Nadia Sawalha, Stacey Solomon and Katie Price and Jackson 5’s Marlon Jackson discuss mental health issues and the pros and cons of therapy.

Meanwhile, Loose Women viewers have called for Denise Van Outen to be made a permanent fixture, after her first guest appearance this week.

The show, which was only on for half an hour today due to the racing, featured Britain’s Got Talent finalists DNA who performed a trick that had the ladies enthralled.

Also up for discussion was having a bath with your teenagers, something which Stacey Solomon had an opinion on.

But it was Denise who fans were interested in, with one begging: “Please give @denise_vanouten a permanent job,” while another added: “Give Denise a permanent roll. She’s great.”

A third said: “Love @denise_vanouten on @loosewomen can we make her a regular?”

“@denise_vanouten aw so good to see you on Loose Women, u should be on more,” said another.

Denise had earlier posted a picture to Twitter of her watching her ex-husband Lee Mead appearing on This Morning.

She captioned the snap: “Betsy’s Mummy & daddy both on @itv today.”

Glad to see they still support each other even though they’ve split up.

Following her stint on the panel, Denise shared a selfie with Stacey.

She wrote alongside the image: “❤️ @staceysolomon fellow Essex fabulous @loosewomen @itv.”
