Oliver!’s Jodie Prenger Lured by Loose Women???
Date: 1 June 2009
Oliver! leading lady Jodie Prenger is reportedly joining the presenters’ table on the popular lunchtime TV show Loose Women. According to OK magazine, Prenger will appear on the ITV programme for two days a week starting in July. The current “Loose Women” include Carol McGiffin, Coleen Nolan and Jayne McDonald. Prenger made her first guest appearance on the show in the aftermath of winning I’d Do Anything, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s BBC reality TV competition to cast the roles of Nancy and Oliver in Cameron Macintosh’s production of Oliver!. Prenger made her official West End debut in the role in January and continues to perform six shows a week at the West End’s Theatre Royal Drury Lane. Of course, she’s not the only West End Loose woman. Lynda Bellingham currently presents on the show, while also performing stage duties in Tim Firth’s adaptation of Calendar Girls at the Noel Coward theatre.
