Loose Women spin-off Loose Men was unanimously praised by viewers for tackling male mental health and other 'taboo' subjects, with many suggesting it have a regular slot on ITV.
Marvin Humes, Ronan Keating, Ronan Kemp and Iain Stirling joined the first ever all-male panel on International Men's Day to openly talk about men's issues.
Fans hailed the show today a "touch of fresh air" as they addressed problems such as male chivalry and the startling figures of male suicide.
Suicide remains the most common cause of death of men aged 20 – 49 in the UK.

"We're the biggest threat to ourselves," Iain said on the figures. "We were brought up that any emotion is a weakness.
"What would be great is to normalise talking about feelings."
Meanwhile, Marvin opened up about a friend who had called him when he was at rock bottom in the middle of his addiction, and he put him in contact with another friend who had previously struggled with addiction.
He revealed that the pair had ended up talking for three hours and Marvin said that he was certain that the chat had saved his friend's life.
And fans took to Twitter to praise the show for its "refreshing" feel and called for the men's special to regularly air every week.
One tweeted: "Would love to see a #LooseMen weekly slot, this has been refreshing and a bonus if it gets men to open up about their mental health. #LooseWomen."
While another commented: "A breath of fresh air watching the men on loose women! So open and honest I love it #LooseWomen."
A third wrote: "Maybe if there were more programmes with men openly chatting, others would open up more. Loving #loosemen today."
"#LooseWomen ,,, let’s have more of #loosemen , as they said, women talk to one another more often, it’s so refreshing to hear men talking frankly ,,, well done," another commented.
Another wrote: "Keep the chaps on #LooseWomen such a great idea."
