When did Kaye Adams join Loose Women?
Kaye presented the first ever show in 1999.
She hosted it until 2006, before rejoining in 2013.
She is extremely close to her colleagues, particularly Nadia Sawalha.
The pair have created a cookbook together, called Nadia and Kaye: Disaster Chef aimed at people who dread cooking.
It’s inspired by their YouTube channel where they share details of their lives.
Did Kaye Adams have a secret feud with Nadia Sawalha?
Kaye Adams is best friends with her fellow Loose Women panellist Nadia Sawalha and even used to share a flat with her.
But the pair went through period where they didn’t speak after Nadia decided they needed some time apart.
Talking on the show Kaye said: “It’s mad to (talk about it) because we’ve never actually discussed it.
“I think we tacitly agreed to put it to one side. I was really hurt, it was really difficult, but it’s like I was saying about friendships: you have to be able to stand back.
“She’d just met (partner) Mark and had (daughter) Maddy… she was totally absorbed in her world. There wasn’t room for me at that time, and you have to accept that.”
Nadia also opened up about the “feud” in 2016 saying, “It’s so bad, but it was all about me. I started to get insecure about whether I was enough as a friend.”
Is Kaye Adams married?
Kaye is not married, but has been with her long-term partner Ian Campbell for 26 years.
The pair met when he was her tennis coach, and had been together for eight years before she decided she wanted children.
The pair have two daughters together, Charley, 17 and Bonnie, 12.
Talking about marriage she said the pair have never felt the need to get hitched but isn’t opposed to the idea, telling The Mirror in 2016: “If Ian wants to pop the question and I get a decent ring and a good holiday out of it I wouldn’t say no.”
