25 March 2015 7:19 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

ITV's Loose Women is launching its own book club.

Loose Books will see the panellists take it in turns to select their favourite book for discussion on a month-by-month basis.

The studio audience will also be invited to join in the discussion, as well as viewers at home via the show's social media pages.

Coleen Nolan has selected The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins as the club's first book. The psychological thriller was published in January.

The panellists are free to choose any book whether it be fact or fiction. They can also pick classic novels or brand new releases to discuss with their co-stars.

Editor of Loose Women Martin Frizell said: "We think of our Loose Women viewers as part of a club and so it's a natural extension to widen that into a book club.

Bend It Like Beckham: Where are the cast of the 2002 box office hit now?

22 March 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Cast your minds back to 2002 - a time when Pop Idols didn't need to have The X Factor, Fifty Shades of Grey were just colours on a paint sampler chart and David Beckham was a mere international superstar rather than global megastar.

Bend It Like Beckham, with a modest estimated budget of £3.7 million, opened that same year and became a critical and commercial success - breaking box office records and scoring BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations, as well as making household names of many of its stars.

As the cast continues preparing for the West End stage adaptation of Gurinder Chadha's screen hit ahead of previews on May 15, find out what the movie's ensemble cast went on to achieve - including who is coming back for the musical...

The 'Loose Women' panellists are refusing to talk to Christopher Biggins over his friendship with Katie Hopkins. The 66-year-old actor - who was close friends with the late former 'Loose Women' star Lynda Bellingham - has compared the current panellists on the popular daytime talk show to the characters of the hit 2004 comedy 'Mean Girls' and confessed they are no longer in contact with him after he expressed his fondness for the controversial star. He said: ''I've lost several pals over my friendship with Katie - especially the 'Loose Women' lot. None of them will talk to me anymore. But »

Jonathan Ross on Jeremy Clarkson: 'Abusive behaviour can't be allowed'

13 March 2015 9:33 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Jonathan Ross has spoken about Jeremy Clarkson's future with the BBC.

The chat show host said that Clarkson must be held accountable for his actions, but said that there is "no cut and dry answer" to whether he should be fired by the broadcaster.

Speaking on Loose Women, he said: "I can associate but not in that way really, me, I was just an idiot.

"It's something the media love, we are already quite bored of politics, politicians every day.

"We're looking at Ed Miliband's fake kitchen, no one really cares. A story like this involves one of the most high-profile people in the country, an incredibly successful man as well, the success of that show worldwide, globally is an enormous thing."

Ross said that while the Top Gear host is "obviously good for the BBC", abusive behaviour in the workplace "can't be allowed".

He added: "We don't know what happened… »

24 February 2015 8:40 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Jamelia has said that people have called her a wimp after her appearance on Bear Grylls: Mission Survive.

The 34-year-old singer added that she has become "more fearful" as she has grown older.

On today's Loose Women, she said of appearing on the programme: "I don't regret doing it. I've walked away with so many valuable lessons. I think the most important one is learning how to deal with fear, feel it and do it anyway."

She also said that she was "embarrassed" and that she looked "awful" on the ITV show.

"My Twitter obviously went mad, people were saying I was such a wimp and blah blah," she said. "I do agree it comes across like that but I wasn't walking through Tesco's, screaming at beans! I was being thrown out of a helicopter, it's a very extreme situation."

She added that she used to be "petrified" of horses, »

24 February 2015 1:15 AM, PST | Virgin Media - TV | See recent Virgin Media - TV news »

The former 'Loose Women' panellist was diagnosed with breast cancer last April and has undergone a mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiotherapy to fight the potentially fatal disease.

People say if you get through a death, you know it's going to be all right. This is as testing. I knew he'd be fine. I never thought he'd leave me. I've »

Vernon Kay has revealed that he would "seriously consider" taking part in Strictly Come Dancing.

The presenter told Loose Women that he already feels like part of the family as he's on set so often with wife Tess Daly, who co-hosts the Saturday night show with Claudia Winkleman.

He said: "If they asked me, I would seriously consider it."

He added that he has "never, ever had one conversation" about joining the show, explaining: "I think it's because I'm there on a regular basis. They must feel like I'm part of the family.

"It's been 11, 12 years that they've been doing it and I'm always down there causing a nuisance. It's such a good show."

Kay also revealed that he likes to recreate Strictly at home with his daughters Phoebe and Amber when Daly is out at work.

"It's quite nice that we know when Strictly Come Dancing is [scheduled]," he said. »

15 February 2015 3:00 AM, PST | Virgin Media - TV | See recent Virgin Media - TV news »

Carol McGiffin has breast cancer. The former 'Loose Women' panellist discovered a lump on her left breast a year ago and was diagnosed with cancer in April, leading to a mastectomy, six rounds of chemotherapy and 15 sessions of radiotherapy, but has kept the illness a secret until now because she didn't want people's sympathy. She explained: ''Part of my reason for keeping it quiet until now has been due to other people's reactions. Some friends haven't been able to deal with my news and got really upset. I then feel really guilty. ''I don't want to pretend any more. I kept it »

Katie Price hits out at Katie Hopkins: 'She is a disgusting human being'

13 February 2015 7:05 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Katie Price has described Katie Hopkins as "a disgusting human being".

The Celebrity Big Brother winner told This Morning that her fellow housemate has "got no respect for anyone".

Price said: "What I will say about her is that she's a disgusting human being. She really is. I went in the house wanting to like her because I thought I might be able to have banter with her because I thought she looked like she could be quite funny. But I did a full circle with her.

"I am confused as to who she is. She has got this soft side, but a lot of it is the nasty side. And I think since she's been out - and I saw her on Loose Women the other day - I think she thinks that people voted for her more because they like her being a bully, so I think she's become more of that. »

Sharleen Spiteri on 50 Shades of Grey: 'El James wouldn't let anything go'

12 February 2015 7:55 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sharleen Spiteri has criticised Fifty Shades of Grey author El James for causing problems on the set of the movie adaptation.

The Texas singer - whose friend Jamie Dornan stars as Christian Grey - said that director Sam Taylor-Johnson has done well to make a "good movie" when the source material was so poor.

"50 Shades of Grey may not make you come": 18 cheeky review innuendos

50 Shades of Grey: What do the critics think of the erotic blockbuster?

Taylor-Johnson has admitted to having numerous rows with James during the making of the film, due to ongoing creative differences.

Spiteri told Loose Women: "Sam has done a great job. The thing is, I've read the books and they are so badly written, really bad. Let's not beat around the bush, you're literally speed reading them. If [Anastasia Steele] has said, 'Oh my' once, she's said it 50 million times.

"So I think Sam has made a good movie. »

Katie Hopkins appears on Loose Women and chaos ensues

9 February 2015 8:17 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Katie Hopkins caused a bit of stir during an appearance on Loose Women.

Things started out civilly enough when the Celebrity Big Brother runner up appeared on the ITV chat show today (February 9), but it wasn't long before the conversation took a downward turn.

Many thanks to @moose-women for having me on the show. The sisterhood at its finest. #loosewomen

Katie Hopkins (@KTHopkins) February 9, 2015

When asked by Coleen Nolan if she ever regrets anything she says, Hopkins asked for an example.

Nolan then mentioned that Hopkins constantly tweeted about her sister Linda, who survived breast cancer, when she appeared in last January's Celebrity Big Brother.

Saying that Hopkins spoke about Linda's "fat arm" and "droopy breast", Nolan said: "Can you imagine someone saying that about your family?"

Hopkins replied: "I wasn't the biggest fan of your sister... I get a lot of comments every day... I accept those things what people throw at me. »

Katie Hopkins has branded Nadia Sawalha a ''bully'' and accused her of being arrogant in the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house. The outspoken newspaper columnist clashed with Nadia throughout their time on the reality TV show and Katie claims they didn't just clash because Nadia was friends with her nemesis Perez Hilton but also because Nadia couldn't live with someone with different opinions to her her. During an appearance on 'Loose Women' - on which Nadia is a panellist - Katie said: ''I think one of your other Loose Women Nadia did a pretty good job of being a bully in the »

CBB's Katie Hopkins: Is she being sincere or putting on an act to win?

6 February 2015 4:42 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

We obviously had our reservations about Katie Hopkins before she entered the Celebrity Big Brother house, even though we'd long stopped listening to the 'controversial' comments she shrills on about.

We have to admit though that she has been a thoroughly entertaining housemate to watch - particularly during her humorous exchanges with Perez Hilton ("No isn't an option? What if you asked me suck your n*b?") and some genuinely funny, self-deprecating moments: ("Mine's [my vagina] like a battered old daffodil.")

While we're all for calling someone out for "being a tw*t", as Katie so succinctly put it during a Diary Room chat with Big Brother last week, we agreed with Nadia Sawalha when she pointed out that Katie Hopkins weakens her argument when she insults other people's physical attributes.

The Loose Women panelist was referring to an incident in the house when she had overheard Katie commenting on Nadia's "big, »

CBB's Perez Hilton: 'Nadia Sawalha chose the path of kindness'

5 February 2015 8:20 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Perez Hilton has expressed his disappointment at the reaction Nadia Sawalha received because of their Celebrity Big Brother friendship.

Speaking on Loose Women, the showbiz blogger praised Sawalha for "choosing the path of kindness".

"One of the things that did disappoint me when I got in the outside world was hearing and seeing some of the negative reactions that [Nadia] got for having a good heart and choosing the path of kindness," he said.

"I'm happy to own and stand by everything I said and did. It made me feel not so good to see how people were treating her."

Hilton added: "The Perez that Nadia got to know is the real Perez. I didn't want to share the real Perez with many of the housemates, as I don't care about the majority of the housemates, and they didn't want to get to know me.

Perez Hilton: 'Big Brother feels like a huge failure to me'

5 February 2015 5:57 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Perez Hilton has said that if he could go back in time he would not have appeared on Celebrity Big Brother.

Speaking after his eviction from the house yesterday, the celebrity blogger said that his stint on the show felt like a "failure".

"I'm feeling very tired but even more thrilled to be out of the house!" Hilton said.

"It feels like a huge failure to me, because if I could go back in time I would not have done it."

Asked why he put up his 'Perez Show' wall during his time in the house, he said: "It was a necessity. I didn't put the real Perez away. Most housemates didn't want to take the time to get to know me."

Of whether he would stay in touch with Nadia Sawalha, Katie Price and Alicia Douvall, Hilton said: "Absolutely. I have already been in touch with Nadia. She reaffirmed »

Cami Li compared Perez Hilton to "'80s porn - bad, but you can't take your eyes off it" following her shock eviction from last night's Celebrity Big Brother (February 2).

The Miami model was nominated alongside Keith Chegwin, Perez Hilton and Katie Price in the show's shock twist which saw her leave the house on Monday night..

Cami Li also criticised former housemate Nadia Sawalha for being "consumed by Perez's energy", and was cynical as to whether the Loose Women panelist had still liked the showbiz blogger towards the end of her time in the house.

Speaking to Digital Spy and others about her sudden exit, she revealed: "It was expected. I thought I was going to be next to go. We all know Perez's arse ain't going."

On whether she was surprised that the public had kept her in for so long, she joked: "Yeah, They're a tortured bunch. »
