Loose Women panellist Saira Khan has revealed the reason she “embraces” her body and strips off backstage on the show.
Her co-stars including Nadia Sawalha revealed their pal is “always nude” behind the scenes, often going topless while in the makeup room.
The girls, and fellow panellists Jane Moore and Christine Lampard, joked about the fact that whatever chance she gets, Saira strips.
But the star revealed the reason she likes to be nude, and the “journey” she has been on to embrace her body.
Speaking honestly on the show on Thursday, Saira was applauded by audience members as she opened up.
She said: “Well to be honest I think you’ve got to embrace it. It has been a journey, and this is why I would say to all women… I was brought up in a culture where if you are nude, or you see any part of your body even like a little wrist, you’re bringing shame on the family, you’ve gotta feel guilty, it’s embarrassed.
“It’s only by being on this show and talking to women like you that’s made me realise, now that I’m 50 next year, I’m healthy, I’ve got a body, I’m so lucky, just embrace it.”
Nadia had said of her friend: “She’s always nude. We like to get on with our work don’t we, but we can’t.
“That’s us this morning, we were all in makeup just chatting but Saira has to be nude.”
They then showed a short clip of a topless Saira from behind, discussing the latest topics for the show.
Jane added: “I didn’t know where to look,” while Christine said: “You get used to it don’t you.”
Nadia then joked that “she’s got them out again” was a regular thing for them, before agreeing Saira had been on a “journey” with her body.
