TV-am's health and fitness expert Lizzie Webb has returned to ITV screens to put the Loose Women team through their paces with a 1980s style shakeout.
Lizzie, once known as 'Mad Lizzie' to TV-am viewers, is now 70 years old but proved she can still put most of us to shame. Jogging on to the programme set, she greeted the team by doing the splits, gaining a large round of applause from the studio audience.
Lizzie Webb joined TV-am in May 1983 when "Good Morning Britain" was re-launched by new editor Greg Dyke. She remained with the station for nearly ten years, last appearing on TV-am's final day, 31st December 1992.
For the last 25 years Lizzie has run her own enterprise "Creativity in Sport", helping troubled and vulnerable youngsters gain qualifications. She has developed successful teaching methods combining fitness and mathematics which have been introduced into some schools in the Thames Valley.

Lizzie was the second TV-am star to appear on Loose Women's special week of features catching up with 1980s personalities. Earlier they chatted to "Wacaday" presenter Timmy Mallett who explained how he enjoys painting and cycling, as well as making numerous personal appearances. The childrens game 'Mallett's Mallet' was brought back so the Loose Women presenters could have a go.
