Where has Loose Women cast member Carol been?
It appears Carol has spent most of the lockdown – and the pandemic – in France.
She last appeared on the ITV talk show in December, when she made a surprise studio appearance.
Carol and the producers played a prank on her fellow presenters by claiming her video feed cut off while speaking from France.

But moments later, she strolled around the set of Loose Women, leaving Jane Moore and Nadia Sawalha in shock.
What did Carol say about her return from Loose Women?
Carol has suggested she will be “back for good” (as well as back on social media) when she appears on Loose Women later this week.
She wrote, alongside a plug-in for her Best magazine column: “Okay. It’s been a while I know, but I’m back. Back here, back in London, back on Loose Women on Friday.
It’s been a while I know, but I’m back.
“And believe it or not, feeling cautiously optimistic.”
Carol has previously called the show via video call (ITV)
‘I missed it!’
Carol explained her absence in more detail in her mag column.
She wrote: “I’m back on Loose Women this week after a five month hiatus and can’t tell you how much I missed it!

“The show, the girls, the routine, getting dressed.”
How did her fellow Loose Women and fans react?
Nadia was quick to comment on Carol’s Insta post in a way we think is affectionate.
She wrote: “Can’t wait to ‘hang out’ with you old cow!”
Carol replied, “Lovely! I missed you too, old witch! “
Fans, meanwhile, were a bit more conventional with their greetings and gratitude knowing Carol will be on the show on Friday.
“Nature heals,” one person commented.
Another remarked, “It’s so good to see your post after so long. “
Meanwhile, a third added: “The best news ever!”
