The popular talk show made history by having its first trans host. India Willoughby who returned to television since transitioning earlier this year will become the first transgender woman to present an all woman programme.
India came to the show to talk about Transgender Awareness Week with Ruth Langsford, Martine McCutcheon and Janet Street-Porter. “I’ve always loved the show so I just can’t believe I’m going to be a part of it,” she said. “Hopefully my history will bring something new to the mix. All the ‘Loose Women’ have overcome some sort of adversity, they all carry battle scars and that’s what makes them interesting people. Mine just happened to my body throughout the journey to become my true self. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world right now and I can’t wait to get live and loose.”
The show’s editor Sally Shelford assumed: “What makes a great ‘Loose Women’ panellist is the journey they’ve taken to become the woman they are today and India is no different. She is an inspiring role model for modern Britain and we can’t wait for her to join the other women for what is set to be a landmark show.”
