The birthday celebrations at the weekend would have come as a happy distraction for Coleen, who has had a difficult start to the year amid ongoing feud rumours surrounding Loose Women.
During a recent appearance on Lorraine, Coleen spoke about her co-stars, stating: "It would be a very boring show if we all agreed on everything. That's what I love about it, but it ends at the desk. It never carries on afterwards, it's great."
Coleen has appeared on Loose Women since 2000
At the start of the year, Coleen confirmed she was taking legal action regarding claims that many of her co-stars refused to work with her on the ITV show.
Taking to Twitter back in January to explain why she hadn't addressed the issue on the live programme, Coleen 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."
