Just weeks after attending her son Shane's nuptials, Loose Women star Coleen Nolan has jetted abroad to Sorrento, Italy for another seaside family wedding.

Coleen posed for photos at a cliffside wedding venue overlooking the sea alongside her three children: her two sons Shane Jr. and Jake Roche, whom she shares with ex-husband Shane Richie, and daughter Ciara, who she welcomed with ex-husband Ray Fensome.

Standing in front of a white flower arch with the crystal blue water stretching out behind her, the TV star looked gorgeous in a white maxi dress. The frock would have been a controversial choice for a wedding, as it's an unspoken rule that guests avoid the colour to prevent upstaging the bride, but Coleen averted all problems with her black animal print.

The flutter sleeves, ruffled V-neck and nipped-in waist of the maxi only added to the flattering design, which Coleen paired with nude peep toe heels that elongated her legs.

Love her look? We've tracked down a bargain version from New Look for just £26, or if you're more inclined to try a zebra print, then check out the Maje frock which is currently on sale.

The ITV star previously explained it was her nephew's special day, captioning a video of the idyllic venue: "The most beautiful wedding day here in Sorrento Italy for @maddisonh_48_ and my nephew Danny… such an incredible venue, with incredible people."

On her Instagram Stories, Coleen shared another sun-soaked snap revealing she accessorised her wild animal print dress with sunglasses and a black fascinator.

Coleen chose a very different look for her son's wedding with Maddie Wahdan back in July 2022. The Nolans star was pictured wearing a vibrant blue dress with a low-cut v-neck, off-the-shoulder cropped sleeves, an embellished belt and a ruffled midi skirt.

She finished off her look with blue pointed heels, a glamorous hat in the same shade of blue, and a sparkly silver shoulder bag.

It must have been a last-minute choice for Coleen, who had asked her fellow Loose Women panellist for their advice in deciding on her mother-of-the-groom outfit just weeks earlier.

After modelling three chic ensembles for Jane Moore, Janet Street-Porter and Brenda Edwards, the majority of the group voted for a blue and white dress with a lacy skirt, patterned detail at the waist and off-the-shoulder straps, paired with blue heels and a nautical hat.
