Stacey Solomon

Stacey shot to fame in 2009 after auditioning for the sixth series of The X Factor.

Her silky vocals and charming personality took her all the way to the final of the competition and, though she ultimately didn't take the X Factor crown, she won the nation's hearts.

After a guest appearance on Loose Women in 2010, Stacey was quickly made a regular panellist and hasn't looked back since!

Away from the studio floor, Stacey is a social media sensation, and has been dubbed the Queen of Clean by many, who love her tidying hacks and tap to tidy stories.

She is also a proud mum to three boys, Zachary, Leighton and baby Rex, who she welcomed in 2019 with TV presenter boyfriend Joe Swash

Brenda Edwards

Singer and West End star Brenda joined the Loose Women team in 2019.

It was in 2005, whilst on holiday in Belfast, that Brenda spotted an advert for X Factor auditions at her hotel and decided to sign up! Brenda made it through to the live finals of the second series and since then her career has rocketed. Brenda has appeared in several musicals such as, Chicago, We Will Rock You, Hairspray, White Christmas and will soon feature in Sister Act as Deloris Van Cartier.

Brenda continues to inspire us here at Loose by openly talking about her body confidence issues following her battle with cancer.
