Andrea McLean definitely won't be the next Loose Woman on Celebrity Big Brother

1 July 2015 4:21 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Andrea McLean has insisted that she won't be the next Loose Women panelist to join Celebrity Big Brother.

Nadia Sawalha, Coleen Nolan, Carol McGiffin and Denise Welch have all appeared on recent series of the reality show, but McLean thinks Channel 5 producers "wouldn't get their money's worth" with her.

She told Digital Spy at the press night for The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time in London: "I've said no all along. For one, I'd be so boring that they wouldn't get their money's worth.

"I've got no idea if anyone is doing it!" she added, when asked if any of her fellow panelists have been approached about the upcoming run.

Meanwhile, McLean said that she has no intention of signing up to any talent competitions this year as she wants to enjoy her summer without being injured, as she was last year while preparing for BBC One's Tumble. »
