Coleen Nolan spoke about 'having to bite her tongue' when it comes to her kids' partners...
Coleen Nolan may have just made a very awkward reference to Jesy Nelson on Loose Women.
As you probably know, the 51-year-old’s son Jake Roche was engaged to Little Mix’s Jesy, 25, until their shock split last month.
Jake, 24, had proposed with a stunning heart-shaped rock at Manchester Arena last summer, and Coleen appeared to get on well with her future daughter-in-law.
But the mum-of-three made a cryptic comment about her children’s partners on yesterday’s show, as the panel spoke about family rows.
She said: ‘When my kids have grown up and dated, I’ve thought: “I’m not sure about this one.” I’ve had to bite my tongue off.’
Eeep. Of course, there’s no way to know if she was talking about Jesy. Coleen is also mum to older son Shane Jr, 28, and 15-year-old daughter Ciara, who could have brought home someone she didn’t approve of.
Neither Jesy nor Jake have spoken out about their break-up, but Coleen has hinted at what went wrong between them.
On Loose Women earlier this month, she explained that the pressure of being in the spotlight was a contributing factor.
She told her fellow panellists: ‘With Jake and Jesy when they first got engaged, instantly all the press – everyone was asking me: “When’s the wedding?”
‘There’s so much pressure on relationships.’
Ruth Langsford then asked her: ‘Have they actually split up?’
Coleen replied: ‘Yeah. But it’s kind of amicable and they’re dealing with it really well and they’re both good friends.’
Fingers crossed she and Jesy are still on such good terms.
