Loose Women cast: Linda Robson discusses shake-up as she says she hopes they ‘don’t get rid of us’

Katie Piper recently joined the panel show

Loose Women cast member Linda Robson has confessed that she’s worried about her place on the panel.

The Birds of a Feather star, 63, has been a part of the ITV panel show since she first joined in 2012.

She’s now one of the longest-serving Loose Women panel members alongside the likes of her co-stars Coleen Nolan, Jane Moore and Denise Welch.

The ITV series has undergone somewhat of a shake-up in the last year with the likes of Andrea McLean and Saira Khan deciding to step down.

They’ve been replaced with some fresh new faces such as Katie Piper, and now Linda has confessed that she worries she could be next on the chopping block.
