I was surprised to Jane as the Anchor when they had Nadia on the panel as well.

I can't stand though the current setup where the anchor is sat at the desk and all 3 panellists come on together - I liked it previously when they came on in different directions. My favourite intro, however, was when they all (including the anchor) would walk on.

Biggest bugbear, however, is when the anchor (they all do it) do that fake "shock" because they thought they were coming on from a different entrance - it's so pointless and cheap!

The start of the show looks very sloppy and inconsistent at the moment. It has done ever since they reverted to the pre studio move format.

They should either run the full titles and let the three panellists come on from the back of the studio, that way you wouldn't have the awkward 5 second gap whilst they're rushing to sit down and getting in the way of the camera. Or they use the shorter titles, and let them come on in different directions as they did originally in April. It's just a constant mess at the moment!

It was great seeing Jane anchor this week, and I'm surprised we haven't seen her before!

How is it rating nowadays - have things actually improved from a few years back when it was regularly rumoured for the axe or have ITV just accepted the ratings for what they are and let it be?


There was an article on RTS that ratings were up for the ITV daytime line up so it’s probably doing fine.

Loose Women should take a leaf out of ABC The View’s book.
They have a great set, great graphics, intro, theme and have a newsier format than Loose Women.

How would you propose that? Relocating to a studio twice the size, shifting production to ITN and leaving ITV Daytime? That's the only way I can imagine it working.

I’m not proposing anything. But it is ok for them to take inspiration from other programmes. Anything would look better than the set they have at the moment. But I suppose if the programme is performing well for ITV there isn’t a need for them to make changes.
