Coleen Nolan has revealed she will spend Christmas Day with her former husband – and her new mystery boyfriend.
Ray Fensome, 56, is the second husband of Loose Women’s presenter. She will also be joining her and her new partner, whom she hasn’t named yet.
Miss Nolan, an ex-pop singer was married for eleven years to Fensome. They have a 20-year old daughter Ciara.
Coleen Nolan, who married Ray Fensome guitarist in 2007, divorced the couple in 2018.
She recently revealed she had been dating a man she met online five months ago and told Woman’s Own: ‘He’s lovely and he’s going to be spending Christmas with us.
‘He’s met all the kids and family and he’s met Ray – and everyone gets on. I can’t tell you his name because it’s early days and I just want to keep it to myself for now.
‘In a way it’s what I wasn’t getting from my marriage. He’s very like me – he’s romantic and tactile and we’ve got the same interests. It’s been great.
‘My kids are all settled and now it would be lovely to think I could have someone for me for the rest of my life – and hopefully it’s him!’
Miss Nolan, now 63 years old, married Fensome (63-year-old guitarist), in 2007. The couple divorced in 2018.
She told Woman’s Own: ‘I wasn’t lonely when Ciara, our daughter, was growing up because that was our common denominator and we just adored her. She was our glue, and that was the problem.
