With 6 people per show, IMDb has 6% more appearances listed than required (and probably a similar percent of people) perhaps due to listing special guests.

Notes

In discussions about gender on panel shows, Loose Women is often portrayed as being "all female". Aside from the fact that it isn't even a comedy panel show, the data show it isn't. Its guests are actually slightly more likely to be male. In 2016 it even started having some men as panellists.
