Loose Women star Saira Khan has savagely made a dig at the other panellists as she urged they've "had their time" on the show and should "quit".

The 50-year-old announced that she is leaving the ITV lunch time chat show after five years and she is now urging the others out of the door.

Saira, who rose to fame on The Apprentice, opened up on how she thinks the others should follow suit during a chat with new! magazine.

She told the publication how there are "a few other women" on the show who "have had their time" and should leave.

Loose Women's Saira Khan has called for other panellists to quit after she did

Saira told the publication: "I actually think there are other women on that show who have had their time and they need to renew and refresh."

The star went on to say she isn't throwing shade and doesn't mean anybody in particular.

She said: "I don't mean anyone in particular, to keep that show fresh and relevant you have to look around and you know when your time is up."

The businesswoman also recently called for bosses to replace her with a "gay, transgender or non-binary" panellist.

She said she wasn't saying it to anyone in particular

Saira gave up her seat on the show after 2020 made her "assess her priorities" and she wants to focus on "what's really important".

The mum-of-two revealed and explained her decision to leave in her column for The Mirror.

She explained how the pandemic made her and her family realise "what’s really important to us".

Saira also wrote how the chaos from 2020 "certainly made me assess my priorities, values and how I want to move forward with my life".

Saira wrote: "So I start this new year by saying goodbye to Loose Women.

"After five years of being a regular panellist, I’ve decided to give up my seat to another woman who will benefit from the platform as I did.

"I feel like I’m graduating from the University of Loose, but I’ve got my diploma now and I’m off to pursue degrees in other life experiences.

"It was a difficult decision, but when you feel there is nothing left to share on a show that is all about sharing, it’s time to bow out."
