Coleen Nolan opens up on spending Christmas Day with her exes for her children

Coleen Nolan has opened up on spending Christmas Day with her ex-husbands for her children over the festive period.

The 56 year old Loose Women panelist, who recently opened up on four-year feud with sisters and why they never discuss it, was asked about spending Christmas Day with an ex.

Coleen, who is mum to Jake, 29, and Shane, 33, wit ex-husband Shane Richie, along with Ciara, 20, with ex Ray Fensome, revealed that she is set to welcome her daughter's father for the festive period.

The I'm in the Mood for Dancing hitmaker said: "Yeah, absolutely, Ray is coming over later today to spend Christmas Eve with us because Kiera is his only child. That was us last Christmas in the kitchen.

"He comes over every Christmas Eve and spends Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with us. It makes it great for Kiera and means we can both see her on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and, you know, if Shane was around, Cheshire or whatever I would invite him and Christie over as well.

"I just think it is important for me no matter what has gone on, we have all moved on, it's Christmas, there are kids involved. It depends how you split, of course."

Coleen split from EastEnders star Shane in 1999 and married Ray in 2007 with the couple parting ways in 2018.

It comes after Coleen shared her own perspective as the panel discussed family feuds and how many people tend to think about those difficulties more as Christmas approaches.

Coleen reflected on the four years she didn’t speak with her sisters after a fall out and added: "It’s been well documented that me and my sisters fell out, we didn’t speak for about four years. It’s a long time.

“But, it was amazing, as every single person who mentioned it they say, ‘but it’s family’, but you can’t always do that with family.

“You have to go, ‘if they were friends I probably wouldn’t speak to them over things that had happened or things that had been said.’”

Coleen admitted that it was the heartbreaking death of her sister, Bernie Nolan in 2013, that made her realise their feud was “silly” and they reconciled.

The TV star continued: “However, it does take something sad, or something momentous to make you go actually this is silly, and for us it was when Bernie died.

"Obviously we were all there and that makes you go, 'Actually this is silly'.”
