Saira Khan, 52, has been keeping busy since leaving Loose Women, completing a presenting gig on GB News while also prioritising her health and lifestyle.

In an exclusive conversation with, the presenter was asked why she decided to leave the ITV show in 2021, revealing Prince Harry and Meghan Markle influenced her decision.

She explained: “We talked a lot about Harry and Meghan on Loose Women and they were another reason I left the show, because I just thought, I don’t care!

“I am not interested in your life. They talked about it so much in the programme and I just thought there is so much better we could talk about, such as the millions of people dying around the world, or the cost of living crisis.

“I had to really scrape the barrel of my brain to share my thoughts on it.”

Saira then shared her disinterest in the royals full stop.

She continued: “I think times are changing, the world is changing.

“If I am going out there to work and pay taxes, I would rather give it to the junior doctor than the Royal Family.” also asked Saira if she would ever return to the show.

She replied: “I think I would return to the show if I felt fundamental changes had been made. I wouldn’t go back right now.

“I feel like I’m in this place in my life where you know you do something, you move away, you find yourself and you really have to practise being that new person.”

She then admitted that she didn’t feel like Loose Women gave her the “voice” she deserved.

She continued: “I think, for me, I’ve always said that Loose Women was always a platform for me to be able to share my story and share my voice and representation as a woman of colour in society.

“I feel there were many times I did that really well. And I felt there were many times that I didn’t do it very well.

“But now I look back I don’t blame anybody. I blame myself, but I do feel like unless I was being a Shouty Gaby there was no other aspect of my life people were interested in.

“… Unless I’ve been controversial, people were not interested in using me to highlight other things.”

In line with Sleep Awareness Month, Saira has partnered with Woolroom to raise awareness on the UK’s unhealthy sleeping habits and educate the nation about how clean sleeping should be taken just as seriously as clean eating.

The new survey found that 98 per cent of people believe that sleep is as important as diet, however only one in six are prioritising their sleep, with just under one in 10 not prioritising their sleep at all.

Speaking of the partnership, Saira said: “It took me many years to fully appreciate how important sleep is for me.

“I, like so many people, did not relate sleep to being integral to my overall health and well-being.

“While I focused on my diet and physical exercise to help me feel fit and healthy, I wasn’t getting the results physically or mentally because I was sacrificing my sleep.

“Now in my 50s and going through the menopause, I really understand the healing powers of a good night’s sleep and have put a focus on researching the right mattress, bedding and the right fibre to sleep with.

“I’ve finally realised that by prioritising a good night’s clean sleep as much as a clean diet and physical exercise, I am improving my overall mental and physical health.”
