Proud mum Coleen Nolan looked glamorous in a bold red dress and white strappy heels as she went for all out for a lavish engagement party she threw for her son Shane and his bride-to-be Maddie Wahdan. 

The Loose Women star was clearly bursting with joy as she posed for snaps at Shane's bash where guests enjoyed a table of treats, from white and gold chocolate donuts to delicious cream-topped cheesecake.

Family and friends were also treated to plush desserts including mini cheesecakes in tiny glasses, with gold and cream toppings.

Son Shane was looking smart in a black tux and bow tie while his partner Maddie stole the show in a clinging white midi dress.

Shane (32) is the son of Coleen and her former husband EastEnders actor Shane Richie, who were married from 1990 to 1999.

They are also parents to Shane’s brother Jake (28) while his older sibling followed in his parents' showbiz footsteps and performs as the lead singer of The Nolan Band.

Shane changed his name to 'Nolan' in honour of his mum when she took part in Celebrity Big Brother in 2017.

When his dad appeared on I'm A Celeb in Wales, friends of the musician said he was considering changing his name back again.

“When Coleen was in Celebrity Big Brother he stopped using Richie and is now known as Shane Nolan. He did this to support her and to show her how much he cared and respected her,” a family friend said.

“It was really sweet and meant so much. After his mates found out his dad Shane was heading to Wales for I’m A Celeb they joked about whether he would change it back to Richie and he’d said he would think about it.

“If he did change his surname it would just be a laugh and something he’s doing to support his old man.”

Jake, meanwhile, was previously engaged to former Little Mix star Jesy Nelson.

Jesy and Jake, who is the frontman of Push Baby (formerly known as Rixton), dated from 2014 to 2016.

Jake popped the question live on stage, even roping in Ed Sheeran to serenade Jesy on the guitar, as he got down on one knee.

However, the young couple split shortly after.
