Sunetra Sarker and Katie Piper are no strangers to the Loose Women panel, and they will reportedly be joining the show as co-hosts in autumn of this year.
If the pair do officially join, they will be co-hosting alongside Charlene White, Coleen Nolan, Stacey Solomon, and Jane Moore.
Sunetra, 48, currently stars in Channel 4’s Ackley Bridge and has previously appeared in Casualty and Brookside.
Media personality Katie, 37, has previously presented documentaries and has been a frequent Loose Women guest over the years.
According to The Sun Christine Lampard is also due to return to the series after her four-month maternity leave.
Before she returns though, she will fill in for Lorraine Kelly on her morning chat show while the presenter is away on holiday.

Charlene White joined the panel earlier this year after former panellist Saira Khan left after five years on the programme.
Saira spoke out about her experience on the show after she left.
‘TV became too toxic. We are paid to be feisty as that’s what makes good telly. I left on my terms,’ she told Platinum magazine.
‘People think you’re best friends with everybody on Loose Women. You’re absolutely not! You have to just tolerate [some people] because you’ve got to get the job done.

‘This whole thing about leaving a group or unfollowing somebody, it’s such a big drama. It’s like “Guys, get a grip!”‘
A little while after she left the show, it came to light that Saira had blocked Nadia Sawalha, Kaye Adams and Jane Moore from her Instagram account.
Saira is still following other women from the chat show, such as Coleen Nolan, Brenda Edwards and Ruth Langsford. She is also still following Stacey Solomon, Linda Robson, Denise Welch, Kelle Bryan and Judi Love.
