Shirley Ballas is lined up for Loose Women panel

Shirley Ballas is reportedly being lined up for a regular position on "Loose Women".

The "Strictly Come Dancing" judge is set to make her guest panellist appearance on the chat show on Wednesday (10.01.18) after she proved a huge hit with viewers in November when she was invited to discuss her role on the ballroom and latin show.

And, although they don't yet know how she'll do as a panellist, bosses are already thinking about giving her a regular slot alongside Andrea McLean, Katie Price, Ruth Langsford, Nadia Sawalha, Kaye Adams, Christine Lampard and Lisa Riley.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "No one really knew Shirley in the UK before she joined "Strictly..." but she has won a place in the nation's heart.

"She isn't afraid to speak her mind and has led a really interesting life that people know very little about. If she enjoys her time on the programme, bosses are really keen for her to return on a regular basis."

Meanwhile, the 57-year-old legendary dancer received mixed reviews when she claimed the head judge position on "Strictly Come Dancing" last year - taking over from fan favourite Len Goodman - and, although she'd love to reclaim her seat this year, she doesn't know if bosses will want her back because of the backlash she initially got.

She said: I've had the most spectacular time. There have been some things to get used to like Twitter and the press. But generally I've thoroughly enjoyed every minute of being on the show. As of yet, nothing has been decided. So we will wait and see...

"I'm quite a perfectionist. When I first came on and I had to judge the first show, it was terrifying. I take my job extremely seriously. You are totally under scrutiny. I go from week to week. I'm married to what I do. I think I did pretty good. I would probably give myself "seven". In anything you do there is room for improvement."
