Loose Women taken off air

ITV News will then air for half-an-hour followed by racing coverage.

For the rest of the week, Loose Women will continue to air for 30 minutes.

Last month, the programme returned with new live episodes after being taken off air for six weeks due to the coronavirus pandemic.

At the time, ITV said there would be adjustments to the broadcast during the first phase of it returning to air.

Three panellists are in the studio and one star joins via video link.

This limits the amount of people at the studios meaning it's safer for the presenters and crew.

Meanwhile, on today's show (June 15), Denise Welch spoke about reuniting with her dad during lockdown.

So it was quite nice to see his full face in real life.

Last week, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Brits are now able to form 'support bubbles'.

The new rule means single adult households can now join another household to prevent loneliness.

Last week, Denise posted a video of herself and her dad dancing as she visited him for the first time in three months.

Speaking about the moment on Loose Women, Denise said: "We've been chatting on FaceTime so I've been chatting to dad's eyebrow quite a lot.

"So it was quite nice to see his full face in real life."

As her video played showing them dancing, Denise explained: "This is me outside dad's house.

"My dad and I are very close and it's been a very hard time for older people."

Loose Women airs on ITV, weekdays, at 12:30pm.
