Denise said she would never speak 'off the record' about her colleagues

Denise and Carol are by no means the only Loose Women stars standing by Coleen. Saira Khan wrote on her Instagram Stories: "Having worked on this show #Loosewomen, I can tell you for a FACT it's not @coleen_nolan that is the problem here.

"Ganging up on another woman like this in public is disgraceful. There are a lot of smiling crocodiles on the show that fool the public for their own gain. So please don't be fooled by the [expletive]."

She later added: "When your mate is being unfairly treated. Step up for them. That's what mates do!

"Don't watch by the sidelines and be scared to speak up because you are worried about what others will think if you get involved. Grow a pair and do the right thing. That's what loyalty, integrity and sincerity is all about."
