A lot of celebs come and go on Loose Women, but now Jamelia has been axed after two years of being a panelist.

According to The Sun, the singer "offended" the show's bosses earlier this year during a debate, and because of it they let her go.

In the debate, she made comments about high street shops, which "annoyed" the show's runners.

A source told the publication:  “Jamelia really annoyed bosses with her comments on high street shops selling bigger clothes.

“The show is often close to the bone but those comments were the final straw.

“Loose Women’s viewers come in all shapes and sizes and the producers don’t want them to be offended," the source added.


Uh-oh, it looks like Peter Andre is going to be feeling serious pressure with his latest project.

The 42-year old pop star has been named as one the many celebs to take on the challenge of this year’s Strictly Come Dancing.

It looks like he has an awful more than simply remembering his routines and getting the perfect sequin to flesh ratio perfect however. He has revealed that his performance is going to be a matter of house and home.

If his appearance on Strictly doesn’t go well, apparently he’s going to be facing eviction!

Don’t worry though, the father of three has admitted that it’s not an unruly landlord that is piling on the pressure. Instead it was his eldest kids that gave him the ultimatum.

“Mine said, 'If you embarrass us just once, don't come home'. So now I'm thinking, so when did it become your house?”

Peter isn’t the only cast member who has a family that are going to be difficult to impress.

Singer Jamelia also revealed that her daughters told her if she didn’t take the job then she wouldn’t be welcome in their home anymore.

"My daughters were literally like, 'Mummy, do not even come home if you're not going to do Strictly this year',” the TV presenter admitted.

Sounds the pressure is on for the two stars this year then. Luckily Pete does have two special people in his corner, no matter if he wins or not.

Speaking about his new wife’s feelings about his new gig Peter said “she’s a really sweet, supportive person.”

He and Emily wed in July of this year, the 25-year old and Peter have a daughter together, Amelia who is 18 months old.


This is seriously exciting!

The Voice of Ireland is back for its fifth season this year, and already the show is getting ready to find new talent.

So, if the thought of getting up on stage and singing in front of Bressie and a cheering crowd makes you all tingly, then this is your chance!

RTE will be hosting auditions this coming autumn and you can apply online by sending in an MP3 or a YouTube clip of yourself singing.

And if you win? You will get a record deal with Universal Ireland just like last year’s winner, Patrick James.

Good luck to everyone applying and who knows – we may even be watching you on TV in the not-so-distant future! 


TV presenter Jamelia got herself in trouble this week when she made some seriously badly thought out comments live on air.

Jamelia was appearing on the Loose Women panel for a discussion about plus size fashion when she said she believed mainstream stocks should not stock clothes over a size 20, because it promotes an unhealthy attitude.

"In high-street stores you’re catering for the average woman; there’s a healthy [weight] range, and I don’t believe they should be providing clothes for below that range or above that range," she said. “Yes have specialist shops, but you should feel uncomfortable if you’re unhealthy.”

The reaction to Jamelia's comments has been largely negative, but one constructive thing to come out of the scandal is the #WeAreTheThey hashtag, started by beauty blogger @Debzjs. In an open letter on her Twitter profile, @Debzjs asked women "below a size 6 or above a size 20" to share empowering photos of themselves, to put a face on the "they" Jamelia spoke of in her rant.

"I think that it is important that people realise that Jamelia is talking about REAL PEOPLE and that they "they" she refers to are a vast range of people from all over."

The response has been incredible, with people from all over the world sharing some amazing photos:

Some beautiful images… we're glad to see something so positive come out of all this.



Gemma Collins has spoken out against Jamelia due to the comments she made recently on Loose Women.

Jamelia believes that plus size women shouldn't be able to buy clothes on the High Street if they are an unhealthy weight.

She said: "I don't believe stores should stock clothes below or above a certain weight. They should be made to feel uncomfortable when they go in and can't find a size."

"It shouldn't be normalised in High Street stores. They should have specialist shops," she said.

Gemma told The Sun: "You can't segregate people who are overweight. Some women really struggle with their weight."

She continued by saying: "Jamelia is slim. She doesn't know what it feels like to be bigger and not be able to go shopping. Are bigger people not meant to be able to get clothes? It's ridiculous."

The TOWIE star has her own plus size clothing range. 

Jamelia has since apologised for upsetting anyone but also defended her statement by saying: "But I do stand by what I said, I am a real women with real opinions. I’m not here to play some villain. It’s not that, I get paid to voice my opinion. Occasionally you offend people.


Former The Voice Of Ireland judge Jamelia has certainly ruffled a few feathers – by saying that fat people shouldn’t be able to buy clothing on the High Street.

The singer appeared on Loose Women – where she is a regular panellist – on Tuesday afternoon and debated the issue of overweight teenagers.

“I am all for celebrating people for who they are – everyone has the right to be comfortable in their own skin,” she said live on air, before adding: “I think everyone should have access to lovely clothes but I do not think it’s right to facilitate people living an unhealthy lifestyle.”


She also stated: “In high-street stores you’re catering for the average woman; there’s a healthy [weight] range, and I don’t believe they should be providing clothes for below that range or above that range.

The 34-year-old mother-of-two concluded: “Yes have specialist shops, but you should feel uncomfortable if you’re unhealthy.”

Understandably, her comments quickly proved divisive, with viewers taking to social media to air their own opinions on the matter. One Twitter user was outraged, stating: “Disgusted and personally offended by what #jamelia said about plus size women. It’s just as bad as #racism and #homophobia”. Another Tweeted directly at the star, asking: “Really?? I am sorry should us larger people walk round in binbags to make you feel better. #disgusting”.

Jamelia featured on The Voice Of Ireland in 2013 and 2014

However, others seemed more sympathetic. “Kind of agree with the Jamelia thing, but only as part of a wider cultural change and education about health. Being size 22 isn't good,” said one supporter.

Jamelia, who appeared on the Loose Women episode wearing a dress from Marks & Spencer’s Per Una Speziale range and Rosa Red earrings, left her stint on RTE’s The Voice a year ago and was later replaced by current judge Una Foden of The Saturdays.



The new addition to The Voice is proving a great success all round. Dolores is already emerging as the most sought after and most entertaining judge to take up a red seat on the show so far.

When all four judges turned last night for John Hogan Jr., a Wicklow native living in Galway, it seemed Kian, Bressie and Jamelia knew they didn’t stand a chance as Dolores had turned also.

John’s song, written by himself was described as a polite version of a rap song and it really impressed Dolores it would seem; “I’m very proud to come back and see this talent in my country.”

Dolores also came out on top when Ciara Donnelly chose Bressie over Kian and Jamelia but also added; “I had it in my mind who I was going to go for when I came in and she (Dolores) didn’t turn around so I’m going to go for Bressie”.

RTE The Voice have even released a hilarious video called ‘Doloresisms’ which you can watch here. G’wan Dolores!
