Loose Women bare all for Lorraine

I was in a terrible state; I was really, really frightened about it

– Nadia Sawalha - on stripping off for the camera

Two of our favourite Loose Women were in the studio this morning to talk about how they bared all for their Body Stories campaign.

Nadia and Andrea shared with us the nerve-racking experience of stripping down to their underwear in front of rock legend, and Andrea's teenage pinup, Bryan Adams.

The pair feature alongside their co-presenters in a series of unairbrushed photos - all in the name of body confidence.

Nadia, who has previously discussed her body issues, admitted she was particularly nervous about stripping down.

She told Lorraine she took part because she wanted to set an example about body confidence for her daughters. Sharing a heart-warming moment, Nadia described how she was almost moved to tears upon finally showing her 14-year-old daughter the shots.

Nadia went on to confess that she, and a couple of other Loose Women, snuck off set for some 'Dutch courage' at a local pub - we don't blame them!

Girls, we salute you!
