Loose Talk was a British youth-oriented chat show that ran for two series on Channel 4 in 1983. It was presented by Steve Taylor, along with a different guest presenter each week.

It was notable for giving Ian Hislop his first break in television, however he regretted the experience as he picked it as one of his pet hates for the comedy show Room 101 in 1994. In an infamous clip, he provoked a confrontation with a 'tired and emotional' Tom Waits on the show, whilst an alarmed Steve Taylor looked on, apparently unable to control the argument.

Jonathan Ross worked as a researcher for the show and Eighties pop-soul singer Sade made her first ever television appearance on it.
