Everybody’s talking about… Coleen Nolan’s appearance on This Morning following the Kim Woodburn row on Loose Women.

You might recall the ructions on an episode of Loose Women last week, when Kim Woodburn was invited onto national TV and humiliated by a panel of women who insisted they brought her there to resolve an ongoing row between herself and Coleen Nolan since they appeared on Celebrity Big Brother.

Now, Coleen Nolan’s been breaking down on This Morning, saying she wished she could go back in time and undo everything that happened during that episode of Loose Women. 

I honestly, genuinely thought that she was coming on to make amends. That’s what I was told was going to happen, and we were going to make a laugh of it, making amends.

None of us wanted to see that. I don’t like to see that, I don’t like to see anybody in that much distress, as she was in the end. 

Interesting, considering the fact that Coleen was smirking through the entire conversation, but sure look.
