Vernon Kay will anchor a one-off episode of 'Loose Men' this week.
To mark Mental Health Awareness Week, 'Loose Women' will be rebranding for the day on Thursday (12.05.22), with the 48-year-old presenter taking the lead on a panel that will include previous guest presenters Mike Tindall and Roman Kemp, and, for the first time, 'Strictly Come Dancing' professional Johannes Radebe.
The programme will support 'Loose Women's Stand By Your Men campaign and will highlight the importance of men speaking out about their mental health.
The panel will also debate issues including body image, the male biological clock, loneliness, and whether society still puts too much pressure on men to be providers.
Vernon said: "I’m really excited to be back for another 'Loose Men' special.
"Men’s mental health is so important to me. I learnt things from the panel members last time that I’d never known before.
"The reaction we all had last time was also fantastic and highlighted how there’s a real need for more discussion around these topics which we look forward to bringing viewers."
Roman is "proud" to be back on 'Loose Men', which first aired in 2020.
He said: "I’m really looking forward to returning to the Loose Men panel this year and proud to be amongst this brilliant line up of men.
"To help shine a light on the struggles men face with mental health, open up the conversation and encourage men to talk is really important to me.
"A simple question to a mate can go a long way. It was great to be part of the panel in 2020 for the first ever Loose Men - the response we received from viewers was amazing."
