She continued: “I became a convert to online dating last year and, as a woman of a certain age (55, ahem), it’s perfect.

“Even if I could go out to bars and pubs to meet people, I don’t drink. It’s not for me.”

Last month, Coleen was left embarrassed after her Loose Women colleagues exposed the relationship.

At the time, the panel of Andrea McLean, Carol McGiffin and Kéllé Bryan were discussing the merits of having a “festive fumble”.

After Kéllé’s saucy revelation that she once had some fun while she was starring in a panto, talk turned to Coleen.

When Andrea probed, Coleen said: “Please stop it. I’m not telling you girls anything ever again!”

“Oh my god, I’m absolutely mortified. I literally feel like a 13 year old that’s just been caught out with a boy.”
