COLEEN Nolan was in floods of tears as she returned to Loose Women for the first time in months.
The former singer, 55, returned to the studio after spending all of lockdown at home with her family.
However, Coleen said she wasn’t excited about coming down to London for the first time in ages – and was actually scared.
So much so, she broke down in tears.
Speaking to the panel, Coleen said: “Five months. And it does feel lovely to be back and see everyone in the flesh.
“But I do have to say that yesterday, when I woke up – because literally I’ve been five months at home, and there’s been six of us isolating together we’ve just been solidly together the whole time.
“So yesterday I woke up, and I don’t know why I felt it, but I felt teary and really a bit strange and I was packing a bag and I thought, I should be excited. And then it lasted the whole time and I got on the train down and I cried all the way here.
“I think it’s because all of a sudden I was out of my secure little bubble and away from everyone I’d spent five months with, on my own for the first time in five months and going to a hotel.
“Leading up to it, I thought it’d be nice, spend a night away in a hotel and not have to worry about the cleaning or the cooking and all of that. But when it actually happened – I haven’t been scared about the whole COVID thing.
“Obviously I’ve been doing what I’ve been told to do and there’s always a bit of worry. But I felt quite safe.
” It was only when I stepped out of the bubble that I thought – oh I don’t know now. And then I get to Euston station and there’s more people there than I’ve seen in five months. I’m fine now, my daughter told me to get a grip.”
The star has been isolating with her family at her stunning £800,000 country home.
It boasts five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a gym and a music studio that housed the former couple’s discs and Ray’s guitars.
Coleen bought the house with her now ex-husband Ray Fensome in 2008, but have since divorced in 2018.
