Coleen has taken a step back from the lime­light af­ter she and Kim came face-to-face back in Au­gust, re­sult­ing in an Of­com in­ves­ti­ga­tion and a can­celled solo tour in 2019. Her fans ap­peared to turn on her and she even re­ceived hate mail from peo­ple wish­ing her dead.

The mum-of-three ad­mit­ted at the time that ‘it’s been the worst week of my life’ as she broke down in tears dur­ing an in­ter­view on This Morn­ing to dis­cuss the cat­a­strophic show that saw Kim walk off.

Kim has since bro­ken her si­lence on the feud, with the 76-year-old con­fess­ing, ‘I don’t wish her any harm and I’m sorry she has no job on Loose Women. I can say, hand on heart, I didn’t cause it and I hope, in time, she gets back on her feet.’ There’s no doubt a break is likely to have given Coleen time to re­cu­per­ate, but it will surely be hav­ing a big im­pact on her fi­nances. ‘Around Christ­mas is when Coleen earns a big chunk of her in­come,’ a well-placed source tells us. Es­pe­cially since she re­port­edly re­ceived be­tween £200,000 to £300,000 for her role as the Fairy God­mother in Brad­ford Al­ham­bra The­atre’s pro­duc­tion of Cin­derella, last year.

Add to this the can­cel­la­tion of her solo tour and not hav­ing ap­peared on Loose Women since Au­gust – with no plans for her re­turn – and it seems as if the fu­ture is very much up in air.

‘What with putting off her tour, she’s in a cor­ner, fi­nan­cially, but the re­al­ity is she can’t face the pub­lic. And with­out Ray, life has sud­denly be­come very lonely and bleak,’ adds our source.
