Jane McDonald will return to the Loose Women panel next week for the first time since losing fiancé Ed Rothe back in April.
It has been two years since the singer appeared on the daytime show and so this announcement comes as welcome news for Jane and her upcoming co-hosts.
Presenter Kaye Adams confirmed her return during Friday’s episode: “We’ll be reuniting Carol [McGiffin] with Jane for the first time in eight years – so many great memories. Jane makes her return next week.”
The 58 year old has had a difficult year personally, after her partner Ed Rothe died of lung cancer earlier this year, which she addressed in a tribute post after he passed.
The sad news was given on 7 April beside a sweet Instagram photo showing Jane smiling with Ed.
"It is with immense sadness that we share the news that Jane’s beloved long term partner, Ed, passed away on Friday 26th March,” Jane began the caption with.
“He had been battling lung cancer for the last few months. We would like to thank everyone for all their help and support during this very difficult time, especially the NHS staff and the wonderful team at The Wakefield Hospice.”
Jane will be discussing on Loose Women how the death of her fiancé has impacted her, joined in support by the other women on the panel as she reveals all.
The singer has also been shown widespread support online by her followers, which she thanked them for in an Instagram post weeks on from Eddie’s passing.
"I want to thank everyone most sincerely for the wonderful cards and messages of support that I have received since the awful news was announced that I had lost my beloved Ed,” she captioned.
"I’m so touched by each and every one. Many of you have let me know that you are going through the same thing as me having lost loved ones and I wish you all love and strength back.”
Jane continued to say how much she appreciated the contributions that were also given to Wakefield Hospice, where Eddie was cared for in his final days.
“I'm hugely grateful for everyone who very kindly donated to the Just Giving page for Wakefield Hospice in Ed’s memory,” she said, before positively adding: “It’s been a tough time for us all recently and I know that better days are ahead.”
