ITN newsreader Charlene White has been announced as Loose Women's new presenter, replacing the recently departed Andrea McLean.

The presenter made her debut on the ITV show on Monday (11 January) as a permanent fixture on the panel, after Andrea stepped down from the show in December after 13 years.

Having guest presented the show on several occasions last year, Charlene was welcomed to the show with a montage of her best bits so far - and there'll be many more to come in her role as anchor.

"This is rather exciting, isn’t it?... I’m officially a Loose Woman," Charlene told her fellow panellists Nadia Sawalha and Stacey Solomon. "I am honestly absolutely stoked. I have been buzzing all this time to be able to reveal that I am the latest and the newest Loose Woman."

"We’re all so happy you’re here," said Nadia, with Stacey adding, "I've been waiting to do this show with you for ages! You're one of us now!"

After the show, Charlene tweeted, "Wow... slightly overwhelmed by all the very kind messages, thanks so much! I’m so excited to join the @loosewomen ladies as the new host. Both on and off screen it’s a talented team who are a joy to work with."

Presenter Gabby Logan was one of the first to congratulate her on Twitter, with fans equally as excited by her appointment to the panel. One tweeted: "To be quite honest I want to see @CharleneWhite on EVERYTHING."
