ITV newsreader Charlene White has been confirmed as a new Loose Women anchor.
The 40-year-old television star was unveiled the show's new host on Monday afternoon as she joined Nadia Sawalha, Stacey Solomon and Frankie Bridge on the show.
Charlene already guest anchored in October as part of the chat show's first all-black line up last year.
She received glowing reviews from fans of the ITV daytime show and viewers rushed to their keyboards to discuss the exciting news.
Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "Loose Women making a good step. Rock on Charlene, the perfect Anchor I must say.. "
Another added: "Lovely to see Charlene again on Loose Women."
A third person posted: "Welcome to the family Charlene."
While a fourth said: "i absolutely love watching Charlene on the news so am over the moon she's a new Loose Woman.
"I’m so glad Charlene White is the new anchor," said a fifth fan.
Charlene will be a permanent anchor, rotating with the likes of Ruth Langsford, Christine Lampard and Kaye Adams.
Former host Andrea McLean announced she was leaving the show in November and her last appearance aired in December.
The presenter got teary as she told the panel, Linda Robson, Saira Khan and Brenda Edwards that she is stepping down to pursue new opportunities.
Announcing she'd already told the others before the show, she said: "I'm going to be leaving Loose Women because I want to be brave.
"All the incredible feedback I had from my book [This Girl Is on Fire: How to Live, Learn and Thrive in a Life You Love] and the support I was able to give them, I want to bring it to life.
"It was a really really big decision to jump and see if I fall or if I fly. And I just thought, 'I will never know unless I try'. So, I'm saying goodbye to Loose Women."
Panelist Saira Khan also confirmed last week that she has quit Loose Women.
The former Apprentice star joined the show in 2005 and decided to leave after spending time with her loved ones in lockdown.
Loose Women airs weekdays on ITV at 12.30pm
