We like Magic Mike (and Jada too!)

I haven't worked out once since that last dance scene ... fappy means fat and happy!

– Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum is back as Magic Mike, and in the sequel he's more than matched in the sassy stakes by Jada Pinkett Smith.

Speaking to the Loose Women from a studio in central London, Channing said they were "super excited" to make Magic Mike XXL.

When Gloria pointed out that Channing was a "raunchy boy", and asked how his wife liked his moves, Channing told her that as a professional dancer, "she made the moves!"

Jada revealed she didn't need to visit strip clubs to research for the part, because "Channing has, in the first part of his life, been part of this profession, and he had all the information I needed!"

Worlds Apart: The tale of a female Muslim SAS trainee

Azi Ahmed

The army made me a better person. It can be a chance for young men and women to meet new people, learn a lot about themselves and gain new skills

– Azi Ahmed

From devout Muslim family to breaking with tradition and adopting a double life as a female SAS trainee, Azi Ahmed's story is an inspiration to anyone who struggles to stamp their identity out of the ‘norm’.

She's an example to modern Muslim women in British society today and proves that women can hold their own in male dominated situations, just as she did in the barracks of the SAS!

Hear about her incredible journey tomorrow from 12.30 as she chats live to our Loose Women.

Surprising Johnny Vegas!

Now that he's finished filming the new series of Benidorm with our Sherrie, Loose Women favourite, Johnny Vegas popped by this afternoon for a catch-up .

And with Father's Day on the horizon this weekend we thought what better way to celebrate than to surprise him with his Ma and Pa live in the audience; it was smiles and happiness all round, rather fitting really as it's the happiest day of the year!
