Loose Women burst onto our TV screens way back in 1999 and received a somewhat mixed reception. Fast forward some 20 years and it's the daily chat show that has cemented itself as one of the best amongst daytime viewing.
If you're a regular Loose Women viewer but you're about to head off abroad (or you already have) then you're going to be without your daily fix of the women because it's not available to watch in most countries.
So if you're nipping off for a week or two in the sun or you've packed up your bags for good to move to warmer climes then you may have given up hope and decided you'll just have to do without your Loose Women fix.
But hold on a minute because that's not the case. There's a really easy way you can watch Loose Women abroad from any country and below I'll show you how.
What you'll need to watch Loose Women abroad
Loose Women is shown by ITV in the UK which means it's also streamed live online on their ITV Hub service.
If you've already tried to watch ITV Hub via their website or using the app while abroad then you'll probably find it's blocked.
To unblock ITV Hub and watch Loose Women outside the UK you'll need to download an app called a ‘VPN‘.
It's an app to protect your online privacy and one of the features of how it does this is by letting you change your location. So if you're in Australia, for example, you can pretend you're still in the UK.
There are hundreds of VPN apps to choose from and the best will set you back a few pounds. I recommend using ExpressVPN because they work well for watching video but there are a few other good options if you've got time to check them out.

Can I watch on my phone or tablet?
Yes, you can watch Loose Women abroad on your phone or tablet. ExpressVPN and the other two recommend VPN services have apps for both Android and Apple iOS phones and tablets.
So no matter what type of phone or tablet you've got you'll be able to watch Loose Women abroad. Unless you've got one of those ancient mobiles with a green screen and no apps of course.
You can also watch on a regular computer or laptop as they have apps for Windows and Mac too.
Can I watch Loose Women on my TV abroad?
If you're abroad for a long time as an ex-pat for example or even on a lengthy extended holiday (lucky you!) then you'll probably have some kind of TV set up that you would rather watch Loose Women on.
After all, it's more comfortable to watch your 4 favourite women on a full-sized TV than be squinting at a tiny phone or tablet screen all the time.
The best way to watch Loose Women on your TV abroad is to use an Amazon Fire TV Stick.
They're a really cheap stick you plug into your TV and you can buy one directly from Amazon. You'll still need a VPN from ExpressVPN but then you can unblock the ITV Hub app on the Fire TV Stick and watch Loose Women on your TV while abroad.
If you've got a ‘Smart TV' with the ITV Hub app then you'll need to buy a dedicated VPN Router as they don't support apps.
They're a little more expensive and the best to buy is the InvizBox 2 Pro. You'll be able to watch Loose Women on ITV plus all the other UK TV channels on your Smart TV while abroad too.
To watch Loose Women anywhere in the world you'll need to get yourself a VPN app from ExpressVPN.
This will let you watch on your phone, tablet, laptop or computer in any country. Just download their app, connect to the UK and then you can watch Loose Women on the ITV Hub website or use the ITV Hub app.
If you want to watch on a regular TV abroad then the best solution is to get an Amazon Fire TV Stick and ExpressVPN.
If you have a Smart TV then you'll need a dedicated VPN Router and the best for the job is the InvizBox 2 Pro.
