The Loose Women panel have been hit with numerous rumours of feuds over the last few months, and now one former star has revealed that she doesn't think she could return to the show as it currently is.

With the daytime show approaching its 25th anniversary, fans have been hoping that some of the show's legends could return to the panel. However, Jane McDonald, who appeared on the panel for a number of years until she left in 2014, has shared that she has no plans to return.

Since Jane's departure, a number of her co-stars have also left, with new faces being added to line-up, with Jane saying this is part of why she won't be returning.

Speaking to Woman Magazine, the TV star said: "Never say never. But it was a period in time when everything was different. We could get away with things that we could never do now.

"And it was an era of girls who were not just colleagues – we were a force to be reckoned with. We were like Sex and the City when we hit the town.

"We’d have taken a bullet for each other. I don’t think I could go back without my friends on the same panel." Jane's comments come after fellow ex Loose Women panellist Saira Khan shared that she's only kept in contact with four of her former co-stars since leaving.

However, earlier this year regular panellist Coleen Nolan hit out at speculation of feuds on the Loose Women set. Speaking to OK!, Coleen said: "We have to have little disagreements because otherwise it would be a boring show.

"If there’s a topic we all agree on, it’s boring, so we don’t do it. When there’s a little bit of something between Janet and me, or anyone else, every time we go to break we say ‘that’ll be on the front covers this week!’.

"I sometimes get upset because I don’t the like them saying, ‘You can’t believe what you see on the television’, or get us to hate each other. It never happens with shows featuring men. You don’t see a story about Match of the Day saying ‘Gary Lineker’s at war with this person or that person’ do you?"

Although Coleen added that it hasn't always been sunshine and roses , sharing that some behind-the-scenes problems did lead to her having to take a break from the show. She explained: "I went through a period where I left for a while because I’d fallen out of love with it a bit and I needed to take a break.

"It was because certain people behind the scenes weren’t being nice and I wasn’t enjoying it.Then those people went onto other things and great people came in, and I’ve loved it ever since."
