Saira Khan has been unfollowing her former Loose Women colleagues.
The former Apprentice star now no longer has Nadia Sawalha, Jane Moore and Kaye Adams on her Instagram page.
The star, 50, still follows other Loose Women panelists Stacey Solomon, Ruth Langsford, Linda Robson, Coleen Nolan, Denise Welch, Brenda Edwards, Kelle Bryan and Judi Love on the site, reports the Mirror.
Reps for Saira, Nadia, Jane and Kaye have been contacted and the Mirror is awaiting comment.
It comes after Saira hinted at secret tension as she admitted she won’t continue speaking to all of her co-stars when she moves on from her role.
She revealed she was friends with some of the cast of the ITV daytime show, but merely “tolerated” others.
Speaking to Celebrity Skin Talk host Scott McGlynn, Saira said: “You make friends with some people, you tolerate some people, and some people you just have to do the job with.”
She then teased: “I’m not going to go into the nitty gritty there now.
“There are some friends.. people I will be close to because we get each other.
“And there are some I really don’t miss at all who I was just like, ‘I just have to tolerate you to do the job.'”
Saira went on: “You have to be professional about it. You can’t pretend that everyone is going to be your best friend. Especially on a show with different opinions, you’re not going to tolerate everybody’s opinion.
“That’s fine. That’s not a problem, just do it with respect and you have to be open minded.”
Speaking out the relationship backstage, she said: “Sometimes I’d go in with an opinion and someone would say something different to me and I’d think ‘Do you know what I never saw it from that point of view!'”
The former Celebrity Big Brother contestant joined Loose Woman in 2015 – ten years after she finished runner up the first ever series of Lord Sugar’s BBC series.
Saira decided to quit Loose Women after lockdown made her reassess her career.
She has called for an LGBTQ person to replace her on the panel.
Taking to Instagram this week, she plugged an article by Gideon Spencer for Campaign magazine, saying it “really opened my eyes to the facts about the TV industry for which I have now worked in for over 15 years”.
“What’s fundamentally important is Representation of BAME and LGBTQ groups should not just be at the ‘frontline level’ – we’ve recently seen an increase in the hiring of many Black presenters on our screens, fronting mainstream shows, which has been fantastic, and long over due.
“But what about that level of investment behind the screens at writer, editor, commissioner levels?” she asked.
“I speak from experience – you get invited through the door – but you’re never really sitting at the table,” she added.
