Coleen Nolan quits Loose Women and postpones tour after Kim Woodburn row

She made the decision following “constant unfounded online abuse”.

IT’S BEEN A tumultuous TV week on British television.

Between the Celebrity Big Brother ‘punch-gate’, and a failed reconciliation between former contestants Kim Woodburn and Colleen Nolan on Loose Women, there’s been no shortage of drama.

Now, following accusations of bullying, Coleen has quit the ITV panel show and cancelled the rest of her tour with immediate effect.

The statement from her team read: “Following the constant online bullying, trolling and misrepresentation of her words and reactions, it is with sad regret that Coleen is taking an immediate hiatus from all her current commitments including Loose Women and postponing her Never Too Late solo concert tour.

Coleen is devastated to let her supporters and fans down, but is currently not strong enough to withstand this constant unfounded online abuse, so she will be taking time out and spending it with her children and family where she feels loved and respected.”

Coleen and Kim came face to face on Loose Women for the first time last week since their series of Celebrity Big Brother aired. 

During her appearance, Kim started crying while discussing her “very sad” and “brutal” childhood.

But she became upset as she spoke because Coleen could be heard whispering: “We got this every day as well.” Kim went on to call her “lying trash” and a “piece of filth” before storming off the set.

Later in the week, Coleen appeared on This Morning and said she didn’t know what she did wrong.

I didn’t say anything! I said about two things in that interview because I know what she’s like, and she needs help, really. I feel terribly sorry for her, I’m not going to say anything about her.”

She went on to say to “apologise to anyone” and that “no one was more upset by the show than I was.”
