Loose Women fans have been warned to have the tissues ready as Sherrie Hewson leaves the programme.

The Benidorm actress, 65, is saying goodbye to the ITV show after 14 years.

Her final episode airs on Monday.

Presenter Ruth Langsford tweeted: "A very sad day indeed but also a celebration of all Sherrie's amazing time on @loosewomen Don't miss it! x"

She added: "Boo Hoo!! It'll be a fantastic show but make sure you have tissues!! x x."

A post from the show's official Twitter account welcomed Martine McCutcheon, Lisa Riley and Stacey Solomon to "our Loose Family".

The trio have previously appeared as guest panellists but the message suggests that they will now have regular seats.

Hewson announced earlier this month that she was leaving the daytime show.

"Loose Women is in my DNA," she said.

"I have a thing that goes right through my body that says Loose Women, like a rock in Blackpool, and so it will never, ever leave me."

She added: "On my seat, I've told everything. I've said everything...

"I've told as much as I'm sure you will want to hear. So I'm going to be leaving Loose Women because it's kind of time.. I've said everything there is.

"I'm leaving this seat so somebody else now can sit on this seat for 14 years and tell all their stories."

But, she added, "like Arnold Schwarzenegger said, 'I'll be back'."
