She’s been going through hell, with a terminal diagnosis hanging over her sister, and a recent battle with skin cancer herself. Now, to top it all off, Loose Women’s queen bee, Coleen Nolan, is facing a hefty fine for putting the pedal to the metal on Blackpool’s roads.
At a time when life’s trials and tribulations have put her through the wringer, Coleen has recently revealed she’s battling skin cancer. The 58-year-old singer and Loose Women luminary, a core member of the pop family, The Nolans, has already witnessed three of her sisters tackle the Big C.
Heartbreakingly, Bernie lost her fight to breast cancer in 2013, aged just 52, and this year Linda announced her cancer had launched a deadly invasion on her brain. Linda recently shared touching moments with her great-niece Marlie Francine, barely managing to keep her eyes open due to the exhausting chemotherapy.
Coleen’s other sister, Anne, managed to beat breast cancer for the second time three years ago and is now cancer-free. Despite the cancer chaos ravaging her family, Coleen has been bravely voicing her experiences on Loose Women, sharing how her skin cancer was almost overlooked.
Having already loads on her plate, the “Loose Woman” has now attracted the wrath of law enforcement for her lead-footed antics. It appears that Coleen, in her Toyota, charged ahead over the 30mph limit on Preston New Road, near The Harbour psychiatric hospital and M55, one fateful Saturday on July 8.
While she initially showed her fighting spirit, pleading not guilty to the speeding offence, she had a change of heart at the eleventh hour. On the day of trial at Preston Magistrates’ Courts on July 21, she switched her plea to guilty.
The court didn’t let her off easy. The speeding songbird was slapped with a jaw-dropping fine of £900 and received a further blow with six penalty points added to her license.
Talk about life in the fast lane! This just goes to show that no matter how you spin it, there’s no skirting the law. Here’s to hoping Coleen takes it a little easier on the roads moving forward.
