Coleen Nolan reveals she may marry partner Michael Jones in the future – but only if he signs a prenup first


Coleen Nolan has revealed she may marry her partner Michael Jones in the future – but only if he agrees to sign a prenup first.

The Loose Women presenter, 58, who was previously married to Shane Richie and Ray Fensome, told how the financial difficulties of getting divorced have put her off ever having to go through it again.

Speaking on Kaye AdamsHow To Be 60 podcast, she said: ‘I think Michael would very much like to get married at some point. 

‘If it meant a lot to him, maybe I would, but I’d bloody make him sign a great big piece of paper before I did, because I’m not going through that again.

‘I’ve looked into it. 100 per cent. It’s sorted from there and it’s a reference point; no-one thinks they’re going to split up. I got married twice thinking both of them were for life.’

Coleen described sorting out finances after a couple decides to get divorced as ‘horrible’ and she would like everything to be worked out in advance.

She said: ‘I never went into marriage thinking – what if it doesn’t work? And neither of them did in the end. 

‘It’s traumatic enough on an emotional level, but then when there are solicitors involved and you’re dividing up everything, what it comes down to is who owns what. How much have you got? Give him 50 per cent. Off you trot. 

‘It’s a horrible stage and I would like to have that stage worked out. That if this doesn’t work out – which I hope it will forever more – but if it doesn’t, then this is the situation that is in writing in a legal form.’

Coleen added: ‘I’ve always been against prenups, because I find them really unromantic and very much like you’re going into it going: ‘well, it probably won’t work, so sign this.’ 

But she told her fellow Loose Women host Kaye that her 2018 divorce from Ray left her particularly fearful of going through the same thing again.

She said: ‘Hopefully it will work and we’ll never have to look at that piece of paper again, but what I went through on my last divorce I don’t ever want to go through again. Even though I didn’t hate Ray, there were times when I was going: “Oh my God, this is so unfair.” ‘

Coleen has remained friends with her exes and Ray is even playing the guitar as part of her solo show Naked which she is currently touring the country with.

She said: ‘It’s a very different relationship and I actually feel grown-up for the first time in my life. I don’t feel like a silly teenager in a relationship. It’s a 100 per cent partnership. 

‘I live quite an unpredictable life as far as work and I just want to be peaceful in my personal life and he brings such a calmness to my crazy life. Nothing’s a drama. I’ve never had that and it’s a beautiful feeling.’ 

The presenter told how she broke up with Michael several times and eventually went to therapy to sort her feelings out.

She said: ‘I was so messed up that I actually finished with Michael three times. It was nothing to do with him. I went and had therapy, because I wasn’t used to being with somebody like that. I’d say: “I’m going to Teso,” and he’d say: “I’ll come with you,” and I’d say: “why are you coming to the supermarket with me?”

‘I was pushing away everything I’d wanted in my life from a relationship because I wasn’t used to it.’

Coleen also discussed her family’s battle with cancer. Her eldest sister Bernie died of breast cancer in 2013 while Linda was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006 which has since spread to her brain.

Her eldest sister Anne was diagnosed with breast cancer for a second time three years ago. 

Coleen said: 'I think Michael would very much like to get married at some point. If it meant a lot to him, maybe I would, but I'd bloody make him sign a great big piece of paper before I did'

Coleen recently had a carcinoma removed from her shoulder and she has pre-melanomas on her face, which require treatment.

She said: ‘Cancer just loves our family. I very much live with the fear that I could be next. I go and see a breast specialist every year and I get a mammogram every two years and I constantly check myself. 

‘You could worry yourself to death and some days I do, but I’m trying not to live in a bubble of anxiety. I’ve been very lucky in love. I’ve had two great marriages.

‘Although they didn’t last, when they were good, they were great marriages and we’ve got three beautiful children. And I’ve been very lucky to find a fantastic love again.’
