Coleen explains why she felt anxious returning to work as lockdown restrictions eased

Coleen Nolan told Andrea, Kelle and Denise that she'd felt very anxious and emotional about returning to work as lockdown restrictions eased.

Speaking to her fellow Loose Women on her first day back in the studio, Coleen explained how despite being excited to return to her seat on the panel, she found it very difficult to pack her bag and make the trip to London.

"I felt a bit teary and a bit strange," she said. "I was like: 'what is up with me? I should be excited'."

"All of a sudden I was out of my very secure little bubble," Coleen added as she reflected on how odd it felt to be in a busy train station after months at home. She confessed that she'd even had a little cry on the train, but it wasn't long before she was feeling much better and was ready for a debate, a gossip and a giggle with the Loose Women.

Check out her thoughts about lockdown and returning to work in the video above and watch her debate outdoor smoking with Denise on the ITV Hub.

Watch Loose Women weekdays from 12.30pm on ITV, STV and the ITV Hub.
