Two ITV Loose Women panellists 'leave show' in 'tense row over contracts'

Loose Women stars Janet Street-Porter and Jane Moore have reportedly “left” the ITV show in a row over contracts. It has been reported that Janet and Jane decided to quit after being told to sign contracts saying they were permanent ITV employees, rather than freelance journalists.

Jane has not been seen on the show since December 29, 2023, but Janet has appeared up until recently.

The row is said to be over ITV’s new PAYE-only contracts policy in response to HMRC‘s off-payroll working rules. It comes after after tax authorities said TV presenters should not be able to use a “corporate veil” to claim not to be staff.

A source told MailOnline: “Jane and Janet are furious. They have done such a lot for that show and they love it. But… they do different work across different companies and, as journalists, value their independent status.

“Things have got pretty tense. If it carries on, there might be a big change to the line-up.”

In response to the report, a spokesperson for ITV told Express.co.uk: “We don’t comment on individual cases but ITV ensures that it complies with and follows all HMRC guidance and legislation.”
