Loose Women’s Coleen Nolan joked about dating younger man on the show [ITV]
Coleen Nolan joked about dating a younger man during Tuesday’s Loose Women – just weeks after announcing her divorce from husband Ray Fensome.
The star made the shock announcement on the show earlier this month, with Coleen giving details about her “hellish” ordeal.
However, despite the heartbreaking period in her life, Coleen found the lighter side and joked on the show about dating a younger man.
The presenter joined her fellow panellists Nadia Sawalha, Janet Street-Porter and Andrea McLean on the show where they were discussing a segment called: ‘Does parental pressure put you off a relationship?’

Nadia then asked her co-star: “But Coleen, what about your boys, do you think they’ll interfere with you if you start dating?”
Coleen, who has two sons, Jake and Shane Jr and daughter Ciara, replied: “Oh I think they’ll be a nightmare!
“There’s already a few rules in place. Shane’s 30 this year and he said ‘mum, it’ll be lovely if you met someone whenever you want to meet someone, but please please don’t meet anyone younger than me!”
She continued: “Which made me feel sick anyway because I don’t want to go out with someone who I could’ve given birth to.”

Andrea then chimed in on the younger man debate, saying: “Can you imagine? They’d be looking at you expecting you to be all firm!”
To which Coleen jokingly retorted: “Oh, I’d be looking at him thinking the same thing!”
As the audience and the panel roared with laughter, Coleen was keen to change the subject as she quickly said “moving on!” while sipping her tea.
The star’s shock words come just days after she previously ruled out dating after declaring she’s “enjoying” the single life.

Speaking on the show, the Celebrity Big Brother winner said: “What I’m going through is heartbreaking and awful at the moment because it’s very fresh.
“Of course I’m not looking for someone because right now I can’t think of anything worse.”
