Andrea McLean opens up about why she was ’embarrassed’ by marriage to second husband

Found happiness with hubby number three

Andrea McLean, the former Loose Women host, has revealed she was ’embarrassed’ by her marriage to her second husband.

The daytime TV star, 52, has been married three times and has found happiness with hubby Nick Feeney.

How Andrea McLean met her second husband

Detailing her romantic history, the mum-of-two indicated things weren’t right between she and her first husband Nick Green before their 2000 wedding.

She explained that having a son two years later unfortunately did not bring them closer together.

A year later, having reached a point of “absolute disconnect” with Nick, she met Steve Toms on the set of makeover series Our House.

“I was still desperate for that happy ending. But the cracks started to show early on.
