The Loose Women panel looked rather empty at the start of today’s (October 11) show as only three of the stars had turned up.
At the beginning of the episode, only Nadia Sawalha, Carol McGiffin and Jane Moore had turned up, with a very notable empty fourth chair.
However, Nadia quickly addressed the elephant in the room, revealing the originally-planned Chizzy Akudolu had to pull out at the last minute.

“Poor old Chizzy is down with a bug,” Nadia explained, revealing they had a back-up plan: “We called Kaye [Adams] and she’s on her way here on a bike.”
They then showed a video message from Kaye on her way to the studio, admitting she had “yesterday’s make-up on”.
However, soon after, the replacement panellist rushed into the studio just in time to weigh in on the episode’s first debate.
The big topic of discussion this week has been Seann Walsh and Katya Jones’ kiss from Strictly Come Dancing, and the panel discussed apologies after the pair said sorry on TV last night.
Earlier this week, however, Janet Street-Porter branded Seann’s ex-girlfriend “stupid” and “naive” over the episode.
Loose Women airs weekday afternoons on ITV at 12.30pm.
