In honor of Mental health awareness week, ITV’s daytime show will host another of its Loose Men specials, which aims to encourage male viewers to “open up and seek help when needed.”
Speaking of the upcoming episode, the always opinionated Richard said, “After the success of the first one Loose men I jumped at the chance to anchor the next delivery.
“It’s no secret that men have a harder time than women talking about our emotions, so I’m looking forward to finding out what happens when boys open up about the things we usually shy away from.”
Martin’s son Roman Kemp previously part of the first Loose Men special last year, where he sat next to Marvin Humes, Ronan Keating and Iain Stirling.
Loose Women editor Sally Shelford said: “We can’t wait to welcome the next four brave men who will take over the Loose Women counter. Supporting our Stand By Your Men campaign, Richard, Robert , Martin and Jordan will help shed light on such an important issue, which will allow men to reach out and get help if they have difficulties.
“And of course our honored Loose Men will talk about some classic Loose themes to give us that important laugh at lunch time as well.”
Richard he said last week that he would be a “bonker” for not talking to GMB bosses if invited, but admitted he likes to “sit people” on the show, rather than have a standing position.
Loose men will be broadcast on Thursday 13 May at 12.30pm ITV.
