Ex Loose Women star to make TV comeback after signing up for Celebrity Masterchef | The Sun

A FORMER Loose Women panelist is gearing up to make her TV comeback after signing up for Celebrity Masterchef.

The Sun can exclusively reveal that singer Jamelia is one of the stars taking part in the new series set to air later this year – and she's already slipped into one of the famous aprons.

A TV insider told us: "Jamelia is excited about Celebrity Masterchef and she's more than ready to step back into the public eye after giving birth in October.

"Of course it was nerve-wracking cooking for Gregg [Wallace] and John [Torode] but Jamelia was more than up for the challenge – she had a great time."

The Sun has contacted a rep for Celebrity Masterchef for comment.

Jamelia was sensationally axed from the Loose Women panel in 2016 after she made controversial comments about plus-size women.

Last year the Superstar hitmaker opened up about the "traumatic" birth of her fourth child.

Jamelia – who is also mum to Teja, 21, Tiani, 17, and, True, four – told Hello!: "It was so scary.

"I felt like I was in labour for a month, but the main objective was to keep the baby in for as long as possible. I just had to hold on.

"I'd only ever seen a C-section on the telly, and thought: 'Oh well, at least it's going to be straightforward and I'll be out in five minutes.'
