Coleen Nolan has firmly denied tabloid claims that the stars of Loose Women have refused to work with her.
She dismissed a report in Sunday’s Mail as “untrue” and said she sought legal advice on “insults” “made against her”.
The response on Twitter came today (Sunday January 9th) after claims that Nadia Sawalha and Stacey Solomon had told producers that they did not want to appear alongside Coleen on the ITV show.
False Loose Women claims Coleen beaten up
The news agency claimed that “the behind-the-scenes drama is wrecking ITV’s hit daily show” due to breakdowns with Coleen.
It is alleged that Nadia said she would no longer perform next to Coleen because her former agent Melanie Blake called the ex-EastEnders star a “bad witch” in 2020.
The report also claims that Carol McGiffin had an argument with Coleen and that Stacey – currently on maternity leave – does not want to work with her either.

In addition, the report also highlighted an argument between Coleen and Janet Street Porter on the show, in which Janet was described as “rude”.
However, while Carol and Nadia are believed not to have been on a panel with Coleen for a few months, Janet and Coleen have been on the same program for the past few weeks.
“Puzzle for producers”
Allegedly a source told the Mail: “Stacey is the newest person to refuse to work with Coleen, which is proving to be really difficult.” Everyone loves Stacey, just like the audience, so no one wants to piss them off.
“It’s a show designed to promote strong women who work together and respect each other’s views, but what’s going on behind the scenes is the opposite of that right now and is much more dramatic.
“All the dynamics and conflicts have puzzled the poor producers. Getting the panels right is a job in itself, but with these additional problems it proves to be difficult. “
However, an ITV spokesperson said, “The panelists are chosen for each show by the editor and the senior production team, not the panelists themselves.”
What did Coleen Nolan say?
Coleen tweeted shortly after noon, “Nothing printed in The Mail article today is true and I am taking legal advice on the insults for myself personally.
“We’ll also bring it up on @loosewomen.
“Thank you for your support. Dear Coleen xx.”
Testimony from Coleen Nolan directly.

Melanie Blake answers
On Twitter this morning Melanie Blake also dismissed the story of the mail as “100% untrue”.
She wrote on Twitter: “Nobody refuses to work with Coleen. I’m no longer at war with Nadia Sawalha. “

Ms. Blake continued, “I personally have no bad relationships with Loose Women, past or present. I moved on and solved this problem with Nadia a long time ago, so this is no longer relevant. “
I love working with Coleen Nolan.
And Janet Street Porter tweeted, “I love working with Coleen Nolan and we’ve never had a single disagreement.”
