His new spot on the panel comes after Saira Khan and Andrea McLean announced their departure weeks apart.
Andrea was the show’s main anchor and Charlene has now taken over the role.
The news broke on Monday’s show and reporter Charlene, 40, was the lead panelist.
She said, “I’ve been buzzing after all this time to be able to reveal that I’m the latest and most recent Loose Woman. ”
Saira decided to leave the ITV family after five years, due to “reassessing her priorities” during the first lockdown.
This followed Andrea’s decision to step down to focus on her website.
Charlene has appeared on the ITV show several times.
She made so many appearances that she was able to get a better cut on her first official show as a panelist on Monday.
Charlene was on the show with Nadia Sawalha and Stacey Solomon.
” I am very happy! Thank you very much for inviting me, ladies, ”Charlene said.
Nadia said to him: “Yeah! You are one of us now. ”
She added, “I am. I am officially a cowardly woman. ”
Charlene has been the main news reader on ITV News since 2019.
She began her career as a journalist on Radio 1’s Newsbeat and its sister digital station, BBC Radio 1Xtra in 2002.
Charlene then became a presenter for 1Xtra’s two-hour TX news program in 2005.
In 2008, she joined ITN as a news reader, before becoming the first black woman to present ITV News at Ten in 2014.
She made her first appearance on Loose Women in August.
One of her most memorable appearances came in October during Black History Month alongside Judi Love, Brenda Edwards and Kelle Bryan.
It was the first time that Loose Women had a panel made up entirely of black women.
In November, Andrea announced live that she was leaving Loose Women.
She said, “You have a life, are you living it the way you want? Do you do whatever you want? Are you brave? Are you taking risks? ”
“And I realized – no,” she said, bursting into tears. “Oh my God, I didn’t mean to cry, I’m so sorry. ”
“Oh no Andrea, I know what you’re going to say,” said Linda Robson.
“I want to be brave, all the incredible feedback I’ve had from my book and the support I’ve been able to give, I want to bring it to life.
“It was a really tough decision to jump to see if I fell or if I was flying. And I just knew I would never know if I had never tried.
“So I say goodbye to Loose Women. ”
Then, a few weeks later, Saira said she was stepping down from the panel.
She wrote in her column for The Mirror, the pandemic “certainly made me assess my priorities, my values and how I want to move forward in my life.”
