ITV is bringing back one of its groundbreaking daytime shows after it scooped a top award.
Loose Men – a spin-off from the daily show Loose Women – won Best Daytime Programme this year.
Andi Peters, Ore Oduba and Shaun Wallace picked up the prize at the RTS Programme Awards in London last month for a show they made with Jordan Banjo
They fronted a special in October that was such a success it saw viewers calling for it to become a permanent fixture.
The spin-off series came about as part of Loose Women's long-running mental health campaign Stand By Your Men.
Other previous panellists have included Vernon Kay, Olly Murs, Johannes Radebe, Mike Tindall, Roman Kemp and Ade Adepitan.

Ore added: "This show totally changed my life because without having a chance to talk about my issues that I was going through I probably would still be dealing with them on my own.
"It gave us a platform we could share, the viewer response was amazing.
"For the television industry to recognise the moment that we shared on telly for that one hour but for what the legacy of it – what it means for everyone who watched it – is really important."
