Di­vorced cou­ple on Loose Women

Daily Mirror - - NEWS - EX­CLU­SIVE BY ASHLEIGH RAINBIRD Deputy Show­biz Edi­tor ashleigh.rainbird@mir­ror.co.uk

SHANE Richie will come face to face with Coleen Nolan on TV for the first time since the cou­ple di­vorced.

The EastEn­ders star is to ap­pear next to the presenter on Loose Women to plug his new coun­try mu­sic al­bum.

And de­spite their split, the 53-year-old said: “I’m look­ing for­ward to go­ing on.

“The girls are great, and I’ll be see­ing the ex-wife… re­mem­ber me? I love watch­ing Loose Women. I like to see what I’ve been up to.”

Shane in­vited the ITV show’s pro­duc­ers to his first live gig in Lon­don where the set list in­cluded a song about how booze wrecked his six-year mar­riage to Mir­ror colum­nist Coleen, 52. She caught him cheat­ing with dancer Claire Tyler in 1996 and the pair di­vorced a year later.

Both have dis­cussed the split in au­to­bi­ogra­phies, and Coleen refers to it on Loose Women. Shane in­sisted he has no prob­lem with her talk­ing about it on TV but said their sons Shane Jr, 29, and Jake, 25, cringe at her sto­ries, in­clud­ing one about how she lis­tened to her el­dest hav­ing sex when he ac­ci­den­tally phoned her. Shane’s al­bum A Coun­try Soul is out in Novem­ber.
