Coleen Nolan quitting Loose Women – just days after Kim Woodburn stormed off set

Coleen Nolan has announced she’s leaving Loose Women – days after her stormy fight with Kim Woodburn over claims she bullied the How Clean Is Your House? star during their time in the Celebrity Big Brother house.

The panellist, who broke down on TV while discussing the fiery row with Kim , is set to take a break from the Loose Ladies early next year as she embarks on her first ever solo singing tour.

The Mirror agony aunt revealed that the gruelling tour won’t give her enough time to appear on the ITV chat show, although she still hopes to pop up as a guest presenter when her tour dates allow it.

"Obviously I’ll have to take a break from Loose Women," Coleen told Woman’s Own magazine.

"I can’t be as regular on it as I am now because I will be in Scotland, Wales, way down south; it will be impossible to be on the show two or three times a week."

She went on: "But hopefully I can pop back when I’m near enough, or we can do live link-ups when we need to. They’ll probably be delighted to get a break from me."

She leaves the show after former panelists Carol McGiffin and Denise Welch staged their own returns to Loose Women, and Coleen says she can’t wait to rejoin them.

"I hope that at some point, if it works out, we will all be on the panel together again," she confessed.

"I think we’ve been through so much since we last saw each other and worked together, so it will be great.

Coleen, whose marriage to Ray Fensome crumbled in February this year, said she’s now getting on "a million times better" with her ex and has even been hosting sleepovers with him at home.

"In the past few years, when we were trying to make it work, that was the hardest part. There were days when we didn’t speak and I couldn’t stand him in the house – it was so hard.

"Now it’s all out in the open and we’ve both realised we’re so much happier as friends rather than being married," she admitted.

"I’m not saying we weren’t happy in our marriage because we were. I think our daughter Ciara was our common bond and other than her, there wasn’t much."
