When chatting about whether height matters in a relationship, Coleen admitted that it does for her. She said: "I've got to say, I'm a bit shallow with that, it does put me off."

The TV presenter, who is currently in a relationship, surprised her fellow panellists, prompting Charlene to ask: "Does it really put you off completely?"

Defending herself, Coleen explained it was due to being insecure about her own height: "But I think it's because it's nothing to do with them," she said. "It's my own insecurity because I've always been the tallest of my sisters, believe it or not, so I always felt like the Amazon woman in the group. When I'm with a guy, I feel more protected when the guy is taller.

"So it doesn't matter how tall they are but if they're my height or smaller, it's instantly like, 'I can't,' because I think I'm going to have to carry him over the threshold, or if there's a fire I'm going to have to put him over my shoulder," she joked.

Charlene disagreed, saying: "I know a lot of short men who are incredibly strong, I can tell you that," to which Coleen replied: "Not that strong to put me over their shoulder, they'd need a crane," which was met with a huge laugh from her fellow panellists. 

Coleen revealed that her current partner, whom she met on Tinder in the summer of this year, is a taller man. She said: "My new chap is six-foot two, so when he hugs me, I feel so protected."
