The star were married for nine years

It was initially Shane's idea to get married in private. "Shane pulled me to one side and said, ‘I can’t do this. I feel like we’re just being told to turn up on the day and it's nothing to do with us' so we cancelled it all and eloped and didn’t tell anybody," Coleen revealed live on Loose Women one day.

The happy couple were all smiles for the camera in 1990 but sadly they parted ways in 1999.

Coleen went on to marry Ray Fensome in 2007 and they split after 10 years of marriage.

The singer has since found love though and speaking of her new partner, whom she met via dating app Tinder in 2021, Coleen said: "I am really happy – he makes me feel like I am 20 again.

"It's really early but we are dating and the kids have all met him and love him."

Coleen described him as "kind, caring, funny, romantic," and added: "He’s awoken a tiger, which I didn’t know was there."

There could be wedding bells again for this Loose Women host!
