"You make me laugh daily. You look after me and boss me about like a mother."

"We can’t go back. And my future is going to be very different to the one I’d imagined back then… The last 12 months have been pretty hellish."

The Nolans musician has since moved on from the guitarist and although thought to be currently single, recently split from her newest flame Michael Jones – who she started dating in January 2021.

Coleen went public with the romance in 2021, after meeting Michaelon a dating app, whilst concealing his identity.

At the time she told The Mirror that the couple shared an age gap but didn't find the difference to be a problem.

She said: "I have moments of worrying I'm a bit too old for him," she explained of her 47-year-old beau. "[But] he's divorced with children, as am I, so we have a lot in common."

In the birthday tribute, Coleen's son, Shane, who she shares with ex-husband and EastEnders legend Shane Richie, could be seen in the background.

Coleen married Shane in 1990 and they had two sons, Shane Jr and Jake Roche, before splitting in 1999 amid cheating claims.
