Loose Women host Andrea McLean has been sent well wishes on social media following her emotional exit from the daytime TV favourite.

She has left the ITV programme after 13 years and is its longest-serving presenter.

McLean (51) filmed her last episode of the daytime chat show yesterday.

After the show aired, panellist Brenda Edwards tweeted to say she would "miss" her.

Denise Welch, who has also appeared alongside McLean, also bid her a "sad farewell".

Actress Vicki Michelle, who starred in 'Allo 'Allo!, said McLean was "such a great presenter and a fabulous Loose Woman".

In her final episode, McLean told viewers: "Being on Loose Women is like a real-life soap opera.


"There are highs. There are lows. There is drama. There is everything.

"I am like the landlady of the Rovers' Return, I am just handing over my bar but I will be back for my Chardonnay."

She is leaving the show to focus on her business, which is called This Girl Is On Fire.
