LOOSE Women star Nadia Sawalha posted cute snap of her costars after former panellist Saira Khan went on a blocking spree.
Just one day after Saira unfollowed a number of her former costars, including Nadia, the popular TV presenter shared a snap of her getting cosy with costars Stacey Solomon, Judi Love and Kaye Adams.

Saira, 50, quit the daytime panel show, then blocked Nadia and Kaye after admitting that she only “tolerated” some of her co-stars while working on Loose Women.
But Nadia had the last laugh sharing a cosy pic alongside the three women, and promised the photo was taken pre-coronavirus pandemic and they were not breaking social distancing guidelines.
Nadia captioned the photo: “THIS IS AN OLD PHOTO BEFORE ANYONE GOES NUTS !!”

Saira’s decision to leave came just weeks after one of the show’s main anchors – Andrea McLean – also bid farewell.
However, Saira also revealed she wouldn’t be following in Andrea’s footsteps by having a tearful goodbye on TV.
The businesswoman joined the panel in 2015, after shooting to fame on The Apprentice.
Writing in her column for The Mirror, Saira explained that she wanted to “assess her priorities” in the new year – triggering her decision to leave.
