Judy Finnigan has retired from television, according to her daughter Chloe Madeley.

And according to Chloe, that’s not going to change.

Chloe told The Sun: “My mum is done with TV and if she went back to it I don’t think it would make her happy.

“She wants to concentrate on other things, such as her health and our family.”

After quitting This Morning, the couple moved to Channel 4 in 2001, where they had a 5pm chat show called Richard and Judy.

The programme moved to the channel Watch in 2008, but ended in 2009.

In 2014, Judy became a panellist on ITV’s Loose Women, appearing several times until 2015. She also hosted the series We Can Work It Out.
