When was Coleen Nolan married to Shane Richie? | The Sun

CELEBS Coleen Nolan and Shane Richie had a rocky relationship in the 90s.

Loose Women star Coleen and actor Shane have happily moved on with their lives in the 24 years since their marriage ended.

When were Coleen Nolan and Shane Richie together?

When they met in 1986, Coleen was a member of the family band The Nolans, while Shane was an up-and-coming presenter and actor.

The pair planned a big wedding in 1990 but this began to spiral out of control, becoming extravagant.

Instead, Coleen and Shane eloped that year in Orlando, Florida.

Their relationship was not smooth sailing though as they later split up after Shane cheated.

Coleen shared that the long-distance aspect of their relationship put a strain on things too.

They appear to have patched things up as Shane invited Coleen to his second wedding, although Coleen did not attend.

When did they break up?

The couple ended things in 1997 and finalised their divorce two years later.

Shane blamed his ego in an interview with the Daily Mail in 2017: "By 1996 my ego had taken over. I was getting a police escort to nightclubs. I'd be thinking, I'm 30, I've got bad skin but all these girls are screaming for me outside." 

He added: "I was lying to myself about the drinking and the women, thinking I was pulling the wool over the public's eyes. I'd be on TV advocating monogamy while I was having an affair."

Coleen shared on Loose Women that she had found out about the affair from the mother of Shane's mistress.

She called Coleen and told her that he was not at work but on holiday with her daughter instead.

Did they have children together?

The pair have appeared to patch things up for the sake of their two children.
