For one day only, Loose Women is becoming Loose Men with Marvin Humes, Roman Kemp, Ronan Keating and Iain Stirling on the panel:

Will be interesting how it turns out. They've had mixed panels before but never an all male panel.

They've done this before haven't they?

They’ve had one or two men on the panel with women but never an all-male panel.

Neighbours is having an all male cast episode on that day in Australia. The UK won't see the episode until December, as Channel 5 is 3 weeks behind Australia. They had an all female cast episode last year for Intl. Women's Day too.

Loose Women has had 2 men and 2 women on programmes before, but never with a man hosting it in the anchor seat. (Unless you count the "Loose at 5.30" programmes from years ago.)

Didn't ITV try and launch a men's version of Loose Women some years back but it never really took off.

Glad to see the day getting some proper TV coverage, rather than mocked or the tired old phrase that 'International Men's Day is everyday'. However, don't expect the day to even have a passing mention on the BBC. Rolling Eyes

They had Loose @ 5.30 which I think was two men and two women.

Wonder why they didn't ask Richard Herring?

I thought the tired old phrase was "what about International Men's Day?" constantly asked on International Women's Day.

The comedy answer to that is "the other 364 days of the year"

But yes, if Herring isn't involved that's a travesty

Oooh this has got off to a good start. Really good panel... I know it's supposed to be a one day thing, but this could be a regular thing (monthly, bi-monthly etc) with the right panel.

Roman’s set up is very good although I wonder if it’s being shot in a studio rather than at home.

He's at home.
