An­drea’s se­cret wed­ding... and the uninvited Loose Women

The Loose Woman is hop­ing it will be third time lucky

We knew it was to be a small fam­ily af­fair, and even sus­pected that

Loose Women’s An­drea McLean would tie the knot this sum­mer when she posted teas­ing pic­tures of her hen party. But are wed­ding bells more likely to ring in the next few weeks?

The ITV star has only con­firmed that she is get­ting mar­ried for a third time ‘quite soon’. But, she added, she was so keen to marry her part­ner of three years, busi­ness­man Nick Feeney, that she tried to elope!

‘ We wanted just the fam­ily to be in­volved,’ she ex­plained. ‘And we were on holiday with the kids, so we thought, “Why not?” But it turns out, to elope, you have to be bor­ing and plan.’

Just two weeks af­ter an­nounc­ing her en­gage­ment in Au­gust, Nick and An­drea jet­ted off with friends and fam­ily for a joint hen and stag do. They shared snaps of the group show­ing off their ‘Team Bride’ gold tat­toos, and An­drea’s ‘Bride To Be’ sash.

And, when fel­low Loose Woman Katie Price asked about the big day, An­drea replied, enig­mat­i­cally, that it would be ‘quite soon’.

This will hope­fully be third time lucky for the 47-year-old, who is mum to son Fin­lay, 15, and daugh­ter Amy, 10. She split from first hus­band, child­hood sweet­heart Nick Green, in 2005, af­ter five years of mar­riage. An­drea later wed builder Steve Toms in 2009, and filed for di­vorce in 2011.

She said, ‘[The wed­ding] will be re­ally small. We’re not do­ing any­thing for the hon­ey­moon – I’ll prob­a­bly just go back to work the day af­ter!’

Sur­pris­ingly, An­drea, a Loose Women fix­ture for 10 years, is con­sid­er­ing not invit­ing any of the other pan­el­lists. She ex­plained, ‘ We haven’t de­cided if the Loose Ladies will come, as [the wed­ding] will be re­ally small. Even if they’re not there, I’m sure we’ll do some­thing else, which could be messy…’

But one thing she has de­cided is that Nick makes her ‘so happy… Thanks to him, I’m no longer look­ing back­wards – I’m look­ing for­wards’.

Will her co-hosts get an in­vite?
