Loose Women men replace usual stars in shake-up as fans ask for permanent change

Loose Women fans have taken to social media to call for Thursday's all male special to be made permanent.

In a move to support their Stand By Your Men campaign, ITV bosses decided to air a one-off edition of the show featuring just men.

The panelists were Marvin Humes, Roman Kemp, Ronan Keating and Iain Stirling.

During the show, the lads discussed the need for more mental health discussions at school.

Speaking via video link, Roman Kemp, 27, said: "I think having these tools to speak to each other, it has to become learnt behaviour from grassroots from children.

"We need to teach boys as school. It wasn't that long ago that I was at school and we didn't once get taught about how to deal with mental health."

The former I'm A Celeb star continued: "From a guys perspective you are growing up to be the breadwinner to provided for your family.

"Even though we are reaching a more equal playing field I think there needs to be more for the kids.

"50% of schools these days don't have any form of counselling which I don't think is good enough."

Meanwhile, Love Island voiceover Iain Stirling added: "I think for years if you opened up to your mates it was like 'oh have a drink what are you doing?'

"I have had those moments in the past trying to speak to mates where they don't know what do to to them.

"They just don't understand what is going on.

"What is great is we are normalising men talking about feelings."

Taking to Twitter, one fan wrote: "Enjoying watching #LooseWomen today. Simply because it an all male panel.

"It’s good to hear men talk about their issues. Makes a change from men get ripped apart on that show."

Another added: "This is really good, men should have their own programme on a regular basis where they can discuss important issues.

"Women could learn a lot too. #LooseWomen #loosemen."

A third continued: "I think this lineup should be a permanent fixture to ITV.

"What a brilliant idea talking honestly about taboo subjects and men’s mental health Raising hands #LooseWomen."

Meanwhile, a fourth praised: "Men should and NEED to talk to other men. Everyone does.

"It's not a female thing and traditionally never has been.

"I think the British habit of injecting humour/banter into everything sometimes gets in the way. #LooseWomen"
