Loose Women cast Coleen Nolan announces exit amid Kim Woodburn drama

Coleen Nolan on Loose Women

Coleen Nolan on Loose Women

To put the record straight, Kim Woodburn and I have never fallen out - she's not everyone's cup of tea, and (like me) she isn't afraid to speak her mind. I never want to see anyone in that much distress as she was in the end. We're an unlikely couple of pals, and most people would describe us as polar opposites, but I regard Coleen as a true friend.

She appeared on This Morning today with Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby to discuss her hard week, breaking down in tears live on air.

Reflecting on the argument with Kim, Coleen said: "If I could go back in time, I would change the whole thing because it was never meant to be like that".

It was supposed to be a light-hearted bit of fun, and Kim was happy to come on the show, for which she received a decent fee.

She claimed that social media trolls have told her she should "die like her sister", and that she was "genuinely shocked" as to how things unfolded on the show. Bursting into tears, Coleen added: "She needs help and I feel terribly sorry for her".

"I genuinely, honestly thought she was coming on to make amends and we would have a laugh about it".

Afterwards, we sat in a meeting room in total shock.

In a statement after the show last week, a spokesperson for Woodburn said: "Kim was invited onto "Loose Women" as she was told Coleen wanted to hold peace talks with her".

"It's been the worst week of my life actually".

"But to be called a bully and to have messages like "Why can't you die like your sister", "Why can't you have cancer like your sister?"

She said: "I've called my managers, my family saying I don't want to do it anymore". What followed, was unreal - in all my 40 years of television, I've never encountered someone like Kim who defies all reason, who started ranting, convinced she was being attacked, and would not draw breath.

Coleen announced on Monday that she was set to embark on her own solo tour, but since the backlash from trolls has increased she's been having second thoughts. She called me every name under the sun.

"In 15 odd years doing a job I really love, there's a campaign to get me fired". I'm never happier than when I'm with the awesome people who have supported me through 50 years of being 'The Loose Nolan!'. She and her band will perform "some of the most popular Diva anthems of all time", as well as a selection of the Nolans' hits, including I'm in the Mood for Dancing. But it's just been a really hard week.

Nolan continued: "I'm so sorry, I didn't think I was going to cry".

A rep for Coleen said the TV reunion was the producers' idea, not Coleen's, as she has no control over guests.

Kim's appearance on Loose Women was billed as an opportunity to reconcile with Coleen after an 18-month feud.
