Actress and presenter Nadia Sawalha, 56, has ruled out disclosing any of the wild antics that happen behind the scenes of Loose Women. The panellist also shared she believes the hit ITV programme has helped improve her as a person.

There is a code of behaviour, my lips are sealed

The star, who has appeared on Loose Women since it first took to the air in 1999, candidly admitted that before joining, she had been “narrow-minded” but says the show has opened her eyes.

London born Nadia became a household name after taking on the role of gangster, Annie Palmer, in the BBC One soap EastEnders, alongside Dame Barbara Windsor and Martin Kemp.

However, after just two years on the internationally loved soap, she bid farewell to Albert Square and instead embarked on a presenting career on shows such as The One Show, Wanted Down Under and Lorraine.

Despite the Loose Women panel being known for speaking frankly about their lives, the mum-of-two has refused to disclose what happens behind closed doors.

Noting that she’s “lucky” to be working alongside women she classes as friends and not colleagues, Nadia said: “There is a code of behaviour, my lips are sealed,” when probed about their wild antics.

“I was very narrow-minded and judgmental before, when I joined I was like, ‘Kaye Adams and Jane Moore? They’re not my kind of person, I’m never going to be friends with them’.” she said in a new interview.

Speaking to The Sun, Nadia added: “We are so close, we laugh until we can’t any more.

“Linda [Robson] and I were once laughing so much I wet myself, very embarrassing.”

During her 22-year stint on the show, Nadia has interviewed some of the biggest stars in showbusiness, including pop singer Britney Spears, Baywatch actress Pamela Anderson and American presenter, Oprah Winfrey.

However, with an impressive CV, she cites Pamela, 53, as her most “surreal” interview and was left bewildered when the actress conducted the chat from her bed, alongside husband Dan Hayhurst.

Despite her presenting career, Nadia cites EastEnders as one of her highlights after being a fan of the show before joining.

As a new member of the cast, Nadia was introduced to a Walford night out by the late Dame Barbara Windsor who gave the actress “so much support”.

She told the publication: “I remember the absolute shame of having nothing decent to wear to the first ‘big night out’ with the cast.

“Barbara was so lovely because I’d met her a few times before I joined and she knew I was broke, so she got the wardrobe department to help me out.”

Speaking of her fond memories with the actress who died last year following a battle with Alzheimer’s disease, Nadia said that the late icon would often walk straight to the door of nightclubs, ordering bouncers to ‘frisk’ her in a playful manner.

Following the easing of the coronavirus lockdown restrictions, Nadia is preparing to sit alongside three of her Loose Women co-stars in the studio, rather than two.

In line with the previous restrictions, the programme was forced to have just three presenters in the studio, with one appearing via video link from their home.

The actress is currently working alongside Network Rail and British Transport Police as part of a new campaign.

They are working to encourage parents to talk to their children about safety on the railway tracks.

As a mother to two girls, Kiki, 13, and Maddy, 18, Nadia explained how this was something she felt passionately about.

She said: “I think even the most sensible kid can get caught up in peer pressure.

“So even if you think that your child would never do anything like that, it’s worth having a conversation with them.”
