Tommy Fury will be part of the latest Loose Men line-up when the series returns to ITV on Thursday, 18 May - in honour of Mental Health Awareness Week. The professional boxer, 23, will join returning host Vernon Kay, Martin Kemp and The Chase’s Paul Sinha.

After Loose Women anchor Ruth Langford announced the special episode at the end of Tuesday’s (9 May) show, a teaser trailer was posted on Twitter. The clip shows Tommy, who recently welcomed his first daughter with girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague, admit that the panellists will all be letting their “guards down”.

Martin then promised to "break through the barricades" of taboo subjects, while Paul added he’ll "open up like never before". Whilst second time host Vernon told the cameras: "Yes, we’ll be feeling the fear and doing it anyway because when it comes to us lads, loose talk can save lives."

On 19 November 2020, Loose Women made history when they welcomed an all-male panel for the first time in the show’s history, to celebrate International Men’s Day. They altered the show’s name to Loose Men for the day and welcomed Marvin Humes, Iain Stirling, Ronan Keating and Roman Kemp.

Since then, there have been several episodes of Loose Men featuring the likes of Vernon, Richard Madeley, Johannes Radebe, Mike Tindall and Ore Oduba. Discussions on the show have included male mental health – with the stars opening up about their own personal struggles – as well as fashion, dating habits and an interview with actor Matthew McConaughey.

This year (2023), Mental Health Awareness Week runs from Monday, 15 May to Sunday, 21 May - with International Men’s Day later in the year on Sunday, 19 November.

Loose Men returns to ITV on Thursday, 18 May at 12.30pm. To find out more about Mental Health Awareness Week 2023, visit the Mental Health Foundation website.
