It's been announced on today's Daily Mail:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz...ngs-slump.html

So Mr Frizell's taking over ITV's one of the main TV shows and planning to change its present format.

Will this mean we may see more of the dreaded Fiona Phillips back on TV once again? After all, she is MRS Martin Frizell.

I wouldn't read too much into this article - there seems to be one saying the same thing every other week.

With Martin Frizell on board though, it's only a matter of time until Fiona Phillips makes an appearance.

Ironic because the first thing ITV did when they took over GMTV was to sack Frizzell. Most organisations have a rule that husband and wife can't work together in the same department....

Get rid of the awful Myleene Klass, but keep JSP, she is the best one on there.

Another change to the panel? If nothing is working then why don't they the show die I.e cancel Loose Woman.

As said above, there is a panel change story seemingly every week. I would change the panel personally, but the format still needs tweaking. I think they've set the show on the right path, but it seems to work best when Kaye/Jane/Nadia are on the show and when the Andrea/Lisa/Sherrie/Coleen's are on the panel together, it slips back to the crap it was before, but I do like Coleen though, it just depends who she is on the panel with.

Change the studio, get them sitting around on a sofa rather than behind the desk (not because it will make the show any better, I just don't like the studio)

Get Kaye in as anchor five days a week and the panel as:

Mon, Wed, Fri - Nadia and Jane
Tue & Thu - Janet SP and Coleen

with the fourth seat either rotating between a few people or get a guest panellist in daily/weekly

I agree, tiresome sexist tripe that if it had an all male panel, would have been cancelled years ago.

I expect they want to put Luisa zissman on it but she is a bit risqué for daytime tv

The best line up they have now is Kaye, Jane Moore, Nadia and Coleen. And sometimes Janet street Porter if she's with the right women to bounce off and banter with. Whenever Sheree Hewson or Mylene Klass is on I find myself turning the channel over! They definately should get rid of them. Ruth's a good addition to the show though. They should use more of her. They also should bring back Carol Mcgiffin. I really miss her. I'm even starting to miss Denise Welsh. That's how bad the shows got! Lol

They need to keep Kaye as the anchor, Ruth makes a good stand in too. Get rid of Carol as anchor and Andrea.
IMO Sherrie, Liza, Janet, jamelia all need to go. They are played out
The programme can only flourish if they bring on fresh faces and alternate
On a regular basis.
A must is to have some new guests, I'm sick of seeing Biggins, Peter Andreì Paddy McGuiness, and all those same old faces that do their rounds over and over again.
Another must is some new types of discussions, not the same old things. If I hear Sherrie talk about when she was divorced one more time, I will scream.
It would be interesting I think if one of the presenters did maybe a five/ten minute feature of a visit they made somewhere, the set of a soap, a business, mother and baby meeting, things like that. I think that would go down well.
Even if they discussed new books would be better than some discussions they have now we have heard since time began!

Above anyone, I'd like to see the back of Sherrie.
I don't think she adds anything. She often takes an age to get to the point and always seems to look to the audience for validation that she's as funny as she thinks she is.
She's just too much of a ditz for my liking.

The only panel member that I'd never want to leave is Janet. She's the only real thinker on the panel, imo.

Lose Andrea and Jamelia. Myleene is the worst addition ever, she thinks she knows everything but knows nothing and just talks too much.

There was talk of Angela Griffin joining, and I think she'd be a good addition.

Is there anyone 'new' who FMs would or wouldn't like to see on the panel?
I'm sure I'll think of some...

They should avoid anyone whose personality and ego are so big that they dominate the balance of the panel, although they should, of course, have on women who don't always agree with each other but can be respectful of each other's views.

Watching it this minute ...what a load of crap and these discussions are so fake and rehearsed........complete drivel. I remember meeting Frizell in a pub in Belfast , beside the BBC many years ago , what a monumental bore then a few weeks later he decked Scott Grisham in a pub in London,,,,I remember thinking Frizell didn't need to punch him , he could have bored him into submission.

Is he still married to Fiiiooonnna Philips ...that's a match NOT made in heaven

I found Gillian very hard to understand, I really struggled to hear what she was saying.
I hope Linda Robson is not invited back, she doesn't contribute much and I'm not really keen on her.
As for Denise Welch, please never bring her back.
Once Lynda Bellingham is over her cancer treatment and restored to good health, I would love to see her back.

Today's episode was quite funny, as it got quite heated when Mylene had a go at Nadia for letting her kids watch a film with swear words. I usually can't stand Mylene but I agreed with her on that. At least she's not scared to stand up to the others. Unlike some of the them on there.

I like Kate as anchor but not mad about any of the others. I thought Nadia was ok until I saw a bit today when they were talking about swearing and she thought it was good to have let her daughter's of 7 and 10 watch a 15 film with lots of swearing because it was gritty and showed them how unfortunate some children are. I'm sorry but at that age they should be watching kids films , not something because it is "worthy". I may be old fashioned but there is plenty of time for that sort of thing in the future. Let them be kids as long as possible and getting back to the subject, it's run its coarse, it's time to call it a day

Nadia can be strange at times though. Not to mention her annoying habit about mentioning her Arabic background every five minutes. Yes Nadia your half Arabic. Get over it all ready! Lol.
