Nadia captioned the video: "I’ve put off filming this all day because I was so cross this morning that I knew I would be nonsensical!!!

She wrote: "I'm so sorry we couldn't say what we planned to today but my lawyer advised me to go through the legal process, but rest assured you will hear the outcome of this and I will share it when I can. Thank you all for your support as ever, Love Coleen x."
