The stars of Loose Women have stripped off in a bid to empower women to love their bodies, just the way they are.
The photographs - taken by international swimwear photographer and rock god, Bryan Adams - show the panellist baring their bodies for the first time without filters or airbrushing.
Katie Price, Coleen Nolan, Janet Street-Porter, Jane Moore Stacey Solomon, Linda Robson, Nadia Sawalha and Andrea McLean took part in the shoot for the Loose Women Body Stories, which airs on Tuesday.

Nadia said she felt "panic stricken" posing in front of the 57-year-old rocker.
However, she felt "liberated" showing off her "battle scars".
She said: "I have wasted more time than I can to think of over my body issues. I've always hated being naked. I felt quite panic stricken at the thought of getting my body out in front of myself never mind a rock god! Stepping into the studio in my bra and pants was beyond cringe. There I was stretch marks, cellulite and all the battle scars of life for all to see with the knowledge that there would be zero airbrushing.
"And to be honest that's why I wanted to do the shoot. I wanted to practice what I preach to my daughters. What the hell does it matter what we look like as long as we are smart, brave and kind?
"I'm praying that after this I will feel liberated and no longer be living in my secret cellulite hell!"
Photographer Bryan Adams said: "It was a funny thing to get a call and be asked to do this… and what I thought was interesting about the brief was, they wanna be natural, they don't want any retouching, and they want it to be real, and I thought, ‘Ok! that sounds really good!’
"So the fact that all of the women were all being really honest about how they are, I thought, 'Well that's great.'"
