Coleen Nolan upset by death threats

Coleen Nolan was affected "massively" when she received death threats.
The 53-year-old star was horrified by the messages she received following a furious on-air row with her former ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ housemate Kim Woodburn on ‘Loose Women’ and she admitted "didn’t understand" why she was subjected to so much "hate" and cruel warnings that she should "die of cancer", just like her actress sister Bernie, who passed away in 2013.
Coleen – who took a three-month break from the ITV daytime show following the backlash – said: "They affected me massively. The main thing was the shock. I didn’t understand where so much hate was coming from. The fact people were threatening to kill me and saying: ‘I hope you die of cancer,’ just floored me.’ "
The former Nolan sisters singer – who has sons Shane Jr., 30, and Jake, 26, from her marriage to Shane Richie and daughter Ciara, 17, with ex-husband Ray Fensome – credits her kids for getting her through the tough few months.
She told the new issue of OK! magazine: "My kids got me through it…Me and Ciara talk about everything."
The teenager claims she was the one who urged her mother to finally end her marriage to Ray – who she split from last year – because she was tired of all the rows and complaints.
Ciara said: "Mum was complaining about something and I went: ‘Will you stop bitching about each other and finally end it, because you’re hurting me."
And Coleen believes she and Ray did the right thing in calling time on their marriage.
She said: "We make really good friends but not necessarily a great husband and wife."
Though the star is "enjoying" being single, she isn’t in a hurry to start dating again.
She said: "It’s too soon. I’m really enjoying being single."
