ANDREA MCLEAN CRIES LIVES ON THE SHOW AS WE CELEBRATE HER 10 YEARS ON LOOSE WOMEN!
It's not easy to pull of a surprise live on TV but that's what we did to celebrate Andrea's decade as a Loose Woman. After distracting her with a prank topic, we revealed the last part of the show would actually be dedicated to her!

JAKE QUICKENDEN READS EMOTIONAL LETTER TO HIS MUM PAYING TRIBUTE TO HIS DAD AND BROTHER
We know his as a cheeky chappie but X Factor's Jake showed a different side to him when he brought his mum Lisa on the show.
In an emotional interview, they talked about his brother Oliver and dad Paul who both died of cancer.
'If Jake hadn't gone through X Factor, I would've had a breakdown,' Lisa revealed. 'Him looking forward to things gave us something to focus on. We needed that, not to forget but something to distract us.'
And Lisa broke down in tears when Jake read out a letter he'd written for Mother's Day.
'You've always supported me even when I was just laying round the house and messing everything up,' Jake read.
'You had faith in me and pushed me to follow my dreams. I know your heart is still broken but Oliver would be so very proud of how you've carried on.
EMMA WILLIS ON TURNING 40 AND BEING A BUSY MUM OF THREE
She tops our Girl Crush list and Emma made us fall even more in love with her with her talking honestly about how she juggles family life and work like the rest of us.
Mum to 10-month-old Trixie, Isabelle, seven, and five-year old brother Ace, Emma is enjoying as much time with her youngest as possible.
'I know this is my last. I’m taking every little thing in because I know it won’t happen again,' forty-year-old Emma admits.
'Everything is amazing, she’s like the perfect child!' she said of Trixie. 'She’s started standing and she’s so excited about it. She’s slotted in. My mum had her third child at 40, so I knew I always wanted to be like her.'
A new study has found that men spend 68% more money on their mum for Mother’s Day than they do romantic gifts for their partner! According to the poll, mums are clearly the most important women in their lives...
ABI TITMUSS: 'I HAVEN'T TOUCHED ALCOHOL FOR 10 YEARS'
She swapped reality TV for Hollywood, and it's a gamble that paid off for Abi who moved to America in 2015.
'I got here with my dog and my suitcase and that was it! I met my agent and got signed', Abi revealed.
She's now a regular actress on US soap Days Of Our Lives despite tough competition. 'I was very aware I'm not I'm my twenties anymore and it’s like the Olympics of talent and hotness. I was very afraid I wasn’t good enough,' she said.
And Abi revealed she's been teetotal for the past decade having discussed giving up booze with our Lisa Riley many years ago when they were in a play together.
'I spoke to Lisa about giving up alcohol and it helped enormously. And I did get help - I saw a therapist,' Abi explained.
'You know what it’s like, you get invited to so many things and soon it's out every other day having a drink and it all adds up. I was drinking behind closed doors and that’s when it’s not so pretty. In 10 years I’ve not had a single drink.'

KATIE PIPER'S MUM DIANE REVEALS HOW THEY COPED AFTER HER DAUGHTER'S ACID ATTACK
Katie is no stranger to the Loose Women panel so it was a real pleasure to welcome her lovely mum Diane to the show as well.
Having supported her daughter after the horrific acid attack in 2008, Diane opened up about seeing her in hospital for the first time and her personal experience of watching Katie rebuild her life.
'We didn’t know what to expect,' Diane said of going to the hospital after getting the call to say Katie had been the victim of a 'chemical attack'. 'It was horrific I didn’t even recognise her. We went into shock. We said: "Are you sure this is Katie?"'
'She said "kill me" when she first came round,' Diane added. 'She couldn’t speak. She was writing things but that was one of the messages.'
LISA RILEY UNVEILS HER INCREDIBLE NEW BODY AFTER CORRECTIVE SURGERY TO REMOVE EXCESS SKIN!
We've been with Lisa every step of the way with her weight loss journey and were thrilled she showed off the results of her recent surgery to remove excess skin.
Lisa - who has lost 11 stone and is now a size 12 - appeared just five weeks after she underwent surgery to remove excess skin.
'I've had one stone, one pound in loose skin removed,' Lisa explained while wearing a gorgeous orange jumpsuit. 'I just keep stroking myself. I'm as firm as anything. I'm 12 and a bit stone now. I'm still getting used to it myself.
'It's five weeks today, I was on the operating table. I feel incredible and I woke up thank God. I've gone on this journey and every day there's something new.'
