Shobna GulatiShe’s set to leave the cobbles next month as Sunita Alahan when a deadly fire sweeps through the Rovers, but Corrie’s Shobna Gulati has already planned her next move.

She’ll be joining the panel on Loose Women!

Shobna, 46, says, ‘I’m delighted to be joining the Loose Women team. It’s a show I have watched and loved for years.  I’m so excited to have some open, honest girl talk on the show.’

Shobna is currently dating toyboy Tony Brown, a runner on This Morning, who at 29, is 17 years her junior. Well, she’s certainly already got something in common with fellow panellists Carol Vorderman,Carol McGiffin and Denise Welch!

We can’t wait to see what she brings to the panel. We just hope Shobna has more luck in her love life than her on-screen counterpart – although it would make for some interesting conversations between the Loose ladies!
