An­drea’s shock wed­ding U-turn!

She went abroad with her hunky fi­ancé, then teased us with pho­tos of their joint hen and stag dos but, now, they’re back and still sin­gle. So what went wrong?

‘“It ac­tu­ally makes me feel bad, like you don’t want to marry me.” I hadn’t con­sid­ered that’

Af­ter two painful di­vorces, Loose Women pre­sen­ter An­drea McLean was done with love – in fact, she vowed never to marry again. But all that changed when she met busi­ness­man Nick Feeney, 44, on a blind date three years ago.

Hav­ing weath­ered a se­ries of re­la­tion­ship chal­lenges, Nick fi­nally popped the ques­tion last month prompt­ing An­drea to joke on Loose Women, ‘I’m not a hyp­ocrite... I just changed my mind!’

She opened up about her mar­riage U-turn, telling her fel­low panel, ‘I gen­uinely felt like I didn’t want to marry again. But af­ter we’d been to­gether for a cou­ple of years, Nick said, “It ac­tu­ally makes me feel re­ally bad, like you don’t want to marry me.” I hadn’t con­sid­ered that.’

In the end, the de­cid­ing vote went to the cou­ple’s chil­dren – Nick has two daugh­ters, Tia-Lilly, 14, and Si­enna, 11, from a previous mar­riage and An­drea has son Fin­lay, 15, and daugh­ter Amy, 10, from each of her former unions.

‘Ac­tu­ally it was the kids that wanted us to do it. They wanted that se­cu­rity,’ An­drea, 47, con­firmed.

So with the bless­ing of all of their chil­dren se­cured, the whole fam­ily headed off on hol­i­day to Europe last month, and that’s when the ru­mour mill sprang into ac­tion.

An­drea posted a cute photo of the group on In­sta­gram show­ing them sport­ing gold ‘Team Bride’ wrist tat­toos and was tagged #hendo # stagdo.

But hold the con­fetti, it seems the cou­ple’s love plans were hit by a se­ri­ous case of red tape. Back home, mi­nus a new wed­ding band, An­drea ad­mit­ted, ‘ We want to get mar­ried with just the chil­dren there, and we’d al­ready planned a fam­ily hol­i­day, so we though we’d give it a go.

‘But you have to be re­ally bor­ing and or­gan­ise it be­fore you get there. So we wanted to and we couldn’t.’

But watch this space. We think An­drea has waited long enough for her Prince Charm­ing. Our bet is those wed­ding bells will be ring­ing be­fore the year is out!
