Sherrie Hewson reveals ‘Hollywood adventure’ is behind her reason for leaving Loose Women – The Sun

TEARS flowed as Sherrie Hewson announced she was leaving Loose Women live on air.

Now the bubbly actress has revealed plans for a "Hollywood adventure" are behind her reasons for quitting.

Sherrie, 65, told The Mirror: "I had a chance to go to Hollywood early in my career but I turned it down and I always wondered whether I’d done the right thing.

"I have a friend who’s a casting director in LA and he sent me an email saying I’d be perfect for work over there now.

"He said they love British actresses who are older as we can still move our faces."

The Benidorm star added: "Acting has always been my passion and I take it really seriously, so I think it’s time for me to go back to that full time.

"I look at people like Betty White from The Golden Girls, still working at 94. She’s still out there, she’s proof we can all do it.

"How exciting is that at my age to think I could still be having a Hollywood adventure?"

Sherrie quit the ITV show this week after more than a decade on the panel.

She said at the time: "It’s been incredible. I’ve been here for 14 years and when I first came here I was not in a good place, my husband had gone and I was not happy.

"These girls have been amazing – they’ve got me through 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."

She's now admitted she "let the acting go a bit" because leaving Loose Women didn't feel "safe".

Sherrie explained: "Over the years I’d thought, ‘I wonder if it’s time to go now…’ and it wasn’t. Instinctively, I stayed. And instinctively, I’ve left now because it felt safe to.

"With all the things that had happened to me, I kind of let the acting go a bit. Loose Women became my life.

"That wasn’t good because what I am is an actress, that’s what I do for a living – and I’d let it slip through my fingers. That disturbed me a lot.

"It’s very hard to leave a family who’ve always been there for you."
