Jane McDonald has “no plans” to return to Loose Women ahead of the show's 25th anniversary, according to reports.

The 60-year-old last appeared on the show as a panellist in 2014 after first joining the line-up 10 years before.

Speaking about her departure, Jane previously commented: "It's easy to keep doing something safe, but I'm a singer. It's been an incredible ten years and I've loved every minute of it."

Lately, she has been rumoured to be coming back to the ITV programme for its special anniversary in September this year.

Is Jane McDonald coming back to ITV Loose Women?

Commenting about her rumoured return to the daytime show, a TV source told Bella Magazine: “In September, Loose Women will celebrate 25 years on air, a feat nobody, especially the critics, thought they could achieve."

They added: "But they have proved everybody wrong and bosses want to go all-out with the celebrations, including bringing back some Loose Women legends. And top of the list is Jane McDonald. For many, she is the ultimate Loose Woman and they will do anything to make sure she's involved.”

But now it’s been claimed the Celebrity Gogglebox star has “no plans” to come back.

A spokesperson for Jane has shut down the reports, according to Entertainment Daily, saying: "There are no discussions taking place with regards to Jane returning to Loose Women whatsoever. She always thoroughly enjoys going back as a guest and catching up with the ladies but there's no plans to go back as a panellist."

The Mirror has since contacted representatives of Jane and a spokesperson confirmed this comment was "accurate".
