Shirley Ballas wants a regular position on "Loose Women".

The "Strictly Come Dancing" judge was a guest panellist on the chat show last month after she proved a huge hit with viewers last year when she was invited to discuss her role on the ballroom and latin show, and now she'd love to land a permanent slot on the programme because she really enjoys sharing her opinions with the nation.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, she said: "I'd love to do the show five days a week, Saturdays and Sundays and holidays. I loved it. Everybody gets to have their fair and honest opinions - you don't have to agree with everyone, but just be sensible about what you're saying. I really enjoyed that."

And it looks like her dream may come true as bosses really enjoyed having on the show and liked how open she was when she was discussing her life experiences.

A source said recently: "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."
