Today on Loose Women

Coming up on the show today we've got Andrea McLean back in the anchor's chair with Nadia Sawalha, Gloria Hunniford and Jane Moore completing the panel.

Those lovely Loose Women will be chatting to the actress and author Fay Ripley.

Fay will be talking about her cookery columns she writes alongside Jamie Oliver and the much anticipated return of Cold Feet.

We can't wait.

We're live on ITV at 12.30pm.

Lord Sugar talks Piers Morgan, The Apprentice and The X Factor

When the Lord of the boardroom dropped by the Loose Women might have thought they'd be in for a rough ride but the Apprentice star was in fine fettle and gave us a brilliant and revealing interview.

In the first part he talked about the Apprentice production process, clashed with Janet and reminisced with Saira.

He needs to be kept under control

– Lord Sugar

In the second part of the interview he talked about feuding with Piers Morgan and that tweet about Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.

JSB has a new recipe for Brussels sprouts

The most hotly anticipated recipe since Heston Blumenthal's Christmas pudding is finally here.

Yes, it's Janet Street Porter's new recipe for Brussels sprouts and, despite hating the things, it actually sounds rather delicious.

Grab a flat frying pan
Cut the sprouts in half
Dry fry them - no oil
Put them on a high heat to get them going, then lower it and leave them
Turn them over once
Add toasted walnuts, pine nuts or almonds for that little extra pizzazz.

Danny Dyer divides the Loose Women

"Feminism's been great for men"

– Danny Dyer

Diamond geezer Danny Dyer came in today to talk about his new book and while most of the Loose Women (especially Coleen!) were charmed by the cheeky cockney, Janet resisted and pressed him hard over his views on women.

Danny was unfazed and even ended the interview with a kiss (from Coleen).
