Meanwhile, her Loose Women co-star Saira Khan announced her departure from the ITV panel show.
She said the lockdown restrictions had acted as a “catalyst for change” and she was able to put her life into perspective.
Sharing a lengthy post on Instagram, Saira explained: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, dream, discover. Mark Twain.
“So for me change comes at the beginning of 2021 by leaving a familiar seat on @loosewomen. It wasn’t an easy decision, but one that I needed to make in order to grow myself in other ways.”
Loose Women airs weekdays on ITV at 12.30pm.
