We didn't expect this!


Loose Women panellist Coleen Nolan has never shied away from talking about the highs and lows of her 13-year marriage to hubby Ray Fensome. And the 52-year-old has made her biggest hint yet that things could be back on track for her second marriage.

Opening up on the hit daytime show the former singer spoke up as her co-hosts debated whether “a relationship break could save your marriage”.

She told the panel:

“It does work for a lot of people, if you’ve come to a bit of a rut, you have to be apart to appreciate what you’ve got.

“Sometimes you’re not appreciating each other and taking each other for granted. And you think the grass is greener on the other side.”

Coleen and Ray Fensome – does absence make the heart grow fonder?

While not explicitly referring to her relationship, the Celebrity Big Brother winner did get some much needed time out from her troubled union during her reality TV stint. Speaking at the time she told the Daily Star.

“I missed Ray while I was in the house, which was great. It’s made me realise how much I do need him in my life.”

And it is this space that may have helped turn a corner for the pair. Reflecting further, she told her fellow panellists:

“Actually having that time apart makes you realise ‘you know what, I do want to be with that person’.

“And at least when you go back, you know it’s because you want to be and not because you feel you have to be. It’s a nice feeling.

“I do think it works for a lot of people.”

Another sign that things may have moved on for Ray and Coleen is this recent Tweet from her management tea about her TV absence.

We’re keeping our fingers crossed that things are on the up for former singer!
