In a Q&A with the author, Coleen Nolan, 55, opened up about dating her new partner, who is eight years younger than her, and her desires in the bedroom. The Loose Women star is yet to reveal the identity of her new boyfriend who she began dating last year. At the beginning of the chat, the singer and presenter said she enjoyed E.L James’ raunchy novel Fifty Shades of Grey.
“I don’t know what that says about me but, equally I have to say, I absolutely love Ruthless Women,” she revealed.
“I loved it from a different perspective, I did feel empowered, by the time I read it I thought I want to be that strong independent woman especially when it comes to the bedroom.
“I guess I have always played that other role – I don’t mean I’ve been tied up and blindfolded – but you know what I mean?
“It’s given me the confidence to go, I can be the boss in the bedroom and I kind of like that.”

Coleen discussed Melanie’s latest novel as well as other topics such as female discrimination alongside the author, Beverley Callard and Anne Summers CEO Jaquelin Gold.
Both Beverley and Jacqueline respectively discussed their husbands being younger than them, to which Coleen joked it had given her hope.
“You’ve given me hope because this new guy I’m meeting – my whole issue with him has been that I’m older,” she admitted.
“It’s not an issue for him at all but it’s been a thing for me and I’ve really had to get my head around it.”
“You know what it did? It made me realise that I am actually still alive from the waist down.
“For many years I thought I was quite dead and Ruthless Women has made me brought it back too life and made me very excited about lockdown ending and getting back out there!”
Coleen began dating again following her divorce from Ray Fensome in 2018.
The former couple were married for 11 years and share 20-year-old daughter Ciara together.
