STRICTLY Come Dancing judge Shirley Ballas has set her sights on snaring a job with daytime TV show Loose Women.
Shirley, 57, appeared on the ITV programme as a guest panellist last month and she had such a ball that she wants to return as a permanent fixture.
Shirley, who was relatively unknown before landing her role as head judge on Strictly last year, has said she enjoys sharing her opinions on telly and would do the Loose Women job seven days a week if she could.
The ballroom star told the Daily Mirror: "I'd love to do the show five days a week, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. I loved it.
"Everybody gets to have fair and honest opinions - you don't have to agree with everyone, but just be sensible about what you're saying.
"I really enjoyed that."
Last month, Shirley was invited on Loose Women as a guest panellist and she was quick to show her funny side.
With permanent fixtures Ruth Langsford, Linda Robson and Stacey Solomon looking on, Shirley flashed her black pants as she modelled a pair of crotchless jeans.
The studio audience went wild as she strutted her stuff around the studio with the Destiny's Child hit Bootylicious blaring out.
Laughing, Shirley admitted that she wouldn't wear them on Strictly Come Dancing but described the outrageous trousers as "comfortable" and "a bit of fun".
Shirley was a massive hit with the audience at home too, with one viewer tweeting: "My day has been made this afternoon by watching @ShirleyBallas being a panellist on Loose Women.
"What a beautiful and amazing lady she is, such a inspiring person and doesn’t have a bad bone in her body. Love her!"
Another added: "When plans are changed but that means you can watch Shirley Ballas on loose women this makes me very happy she's just brilliant and looks beautiful!"
A third even said: "If there’s a guest panellist who could get me to watch Loose Women, it’s Shirley Ballas."
The odds could be in Shirley's favour as, before her Loose Women appearance, a source was quoted saying: "No one really knew Shirley in the UK before she joined Strictly but she has won a place in the nation's heart.
"She isn't afraid to speak her mind and has led a really interesting life that people know very little about.
"If she enjoys her time on the programme, bosses are really keen for her to return on a regular basis."
