Coleen Nolan's son doesn't think her marriage will survive
Coleen Nolan's eldest son doesn't think her marriage with his step-father will work out.
The 'Loose Women' panellist has just entered the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house as she's hoping time away from her husband Ray Fensome will help repair their fragile romance, but her son Shane Jr. - her child with Shane Richie - isn't convinced the distance will do either of them very good and may end up destroying their relationship for good if she starts sharing details about their love life on TV.
Speaking on the lunchtime show on Thursday (05.01.17), he said: "It's never nice seeing a parent cry, especially my mum. She's like my best friend, it's heartbreaking. I've seen her cry no more than five times... I think she hates crying in front of her children. She's never done it in all the break ups, and arguments with Ray. At the minute it [their marriage] doesn't look great, does it."
But Shane, 28, is hoping his mother can make amends with Ray, whom she married in 2007 and has 16-year-old daughter Ciara with, because he's always been a "great friend and stepdad" to him.
He also thinks Ray may benefit from undergoing therapy - like his mum recently did on national television - because he's so shy and tends to bottle things up until they become too much for him.
Although Shane can't bear to see his mother argue with Ray, he's determined to do all he can to support her and has recently changed his surname from Richie back to Nolan for her.
Coleen was reduced to tears on television on Wednesday (04.01.17) in the show 'In Therapy', whichh was filmed before she entered the famous abode, as she opened up about her marital woes.
Speaking on the Channel 5 show, she said: "I don't want it to fail again.
"I really love him but I always feel like I'm having a go at him ... That's horrible."
Hinting that her relationship with the musician is over, the 51-year-old former pop star said she would be able to "get over it" if they do go their separate ways because she wouldn't want to be with someone if they weren't "happy".
Wiping her tears away, Coleen admitted: "I can't bear the thought of someone staying with me if they're not happy - [if he leaves] I'll get over it. I've never really felt good enough for someone ... I know doesn't fancy me ... Oh my God I'm crying, I hate crying."
Coleen also has 24-year-old son Jake Roche with her first husband Shane.
