Coleen Nolan vows NEVER to marry again following second divorce
Coleen Nolan isn’t going to be rushing down the aisle anytime soon – or so she hopes.
The Loose Women anchor has vowed never to marry again following her divorce from her second husband Ray Fensome last year.
Although she’s open to dating and meeting someone new, Coleen, 54, has said that she is ‘blissfully happy’ on her own and has absolutely no desire to get hitched for now.
Speaking to new! magazine, the mum-of-three who split from Ray after 17 years and shares daughter Ciara, 17, together, said that the pair are still firm friends and he’s incredibly supportive of her.
Asked if she would hope to marry again Coleen said: “No. I’m saying that now, but maybe in two years I’ll be saying, ‘I’m about to get married for the third time!’
“But no, if I met someone it would be lovely, but I’m blissfully happy on my own.”
The TV personality and former Celebrity Big Brother winner revealed the news of her divorce early last year saying she’d fought “with every fibre of my being” for her marriage to Ray but that she was “wrong” about them growing old together.
Coleen had previously told readers of her Mirror column in 2016 that she and Ray were having relationship problems and that she was considering asking for a trial separation if talking and counselling didn’t fix their troubles.
She’d even revealed during her time in the CBB house that she’d signed up for the series for a break from her husband.
Before Ray, Coleen was married to Shane Richie – best known for playing Alfie Moon on EastEnders – for nine years, having had two sons, Shane Nolan and Jake Roche, with him.
After the divorce Coleen faced an even more difficult year after she ended up under intense scrutiny following a clash with Kim Woodburn on Loose Women.
She took a break from the ITV daytime show when she was inundated death threats over the onscreen spat.
Coleen added that the break from telly allowed her to prioritise her family and friends and deal properly with her divorce.
She said: “I don’t like to dwell on or remember that time. But the whole thing did me a favour because taking time out has put me in a great place.”
Coleen is set to make her debut as an actress in Thunder Girls, an all-female play about a a former pop star who reunites with her girl band 30 years after they first found fame.
