Coleen Nolan 'upset' by sister Maureen’s facelift plans: 'I can’t bear the thoughts of her being in pain'


Coleen was joined by her sister Maureen and was 'upset' at her plans to have a facelift.

Maureen has booked to have a facelift next week, after saying she feels depressed when she looks in the mirror. But Coleen is not happy.

Coleen said: 'I can’t bear the thoughts of her being in pain, I can’t bear the thoughts of anything going wrong in surgery, I just can’t handle anything else happening to anymore of my sisters, it gives me a lump in my throat at the thought of it.'

'I think the thing for me, I’ll always be proud of you - if you have a facelift or don’t have a facelift, I’ll always be proud of you,' Coleen told Maureen. 'And there’s no denying you’ll look fabulous. I’ll be sitting her saying you look fabulous. Here’s my issues: everyone I meet says "Your sister Maureen is so gorgeous!" I tell them your age [63] and I go, "She’s had no work done". They say, "She must have" and I say "No". Now, I’ll say, "Yeah, she’s had a facelift". It upsets me a little bit.'

Danniella Westbrook says drug battle is ‘every day struggle’ as she thanks friend Kerry Katona and talks relapses


Kerry recently reached out to Danniella on Loose Women and now the friends have appeared together for the first time to talk about their past drug addiction.

Danniella said: 'We've both had such parallel lives, abusive relationships, drugs... I'm 13 years clean, I've relapsed and relapsed. It's an every day struggle. To have a friend and a mentor in Kerry, I think it's great.'

'Women coming together to help each other, stop judging each other, ' Danniella added. 'I can ring Kerry and I know whatever I say to Kerry is not going anywhere else - because we both know what it's like to be torn to shreds, and to be so alone and have to get up every day for our kids.'

And Kerry is determined to be there for Danniella after her personal experience of addiction.

'I have been off medication a year in June, I done it with [the help of] my doctor,' Kerry said. 'The turning point was when I went to boot camp around ten years ago. I remember sitting with my mum, thinking I don't want this any more.'

Kerry spoke about helping Danniella while on Loose Women recently saying:

‘I was with her a few weekends ago and I don’t know if she is using [drugs] but I do know a lot of people are judging her because of her past,’ Kerry said. ‘It doesn’t make her a bad person, she had an addiction and she needs to realise she needs help.’

‘Danniella you know I’m your friend, we spoke the other day, you’re not alone, there is nothing to be embarrassed or ashamed about, don’t suffer in silence.’

Hilarious Simon Cowell interview gatecrashed by son Eric and 'coffee makers' Robbie Williams!


When TV judge Simon invited us to his LA home for an exclusive interview we were there like a shot. And who better to send than our very own Ayda Field?

But while we want to have a serious chat about Children's Hospice Week, Simon's son Eric was determined to get in on the action causing much hilarity.

Eric, four got busy pinning clothes pegs to his dad before Ayda’s husband - only Robbie Williams - joined in the fun. Robbie served Ayda a cup of coffee on a silver tray, while she teases that her new 'assistant' is a bit 'rough around the edges'.

Ayda joked to Simon: 'I’m training him. He’s good… I think you’ve already taken up enough time [Robbie]. By the way my car’s a bit dirty if you just wouldn’t mind just giving it a bit of a scrub. He talks so much and he’s got a very thick Northern accent.'

As he walked out of shot Ayda yells of her coffee: 'Bit too frothy, Robert!'

Simon kindly set up the chat in his garden and told our Ayda why he continues support Together For Short Lives and Children’s Hospice Week (21 - 27 May 2018) which is encouraging people to share their special moments using the #LifesShort hashtag.

Children’s Hospice Week is organised nationally by Together for Short Lives, working alongside local children’s hospices and palliative care services right across the UK.

Children’s Hospice Week is the only week in the year which is dedicated to raising awareness and funds for the UK’s 49,000 children with life-limiting conditions in the UK, and the lifeline services that work tirelessly to support them. Visit www.togetherforshortlives.org.uk for more information.

Watch the videos to see all the fun with Simon, Eric and Robbie with Ayda!
