The Loose Women panellist has bagged a huge £300,000 and will appear in 70 shows altogether.

The Celebrity Big Brother winner signed up for the acting role after winning the show in January.

A source told The Sun: “If you are a big star then panto always pays well but this is one of the biggest fees people have heard of.

“She will be earning roughly £4,000 per show but that cost is covered if producers fill ten per cent of the 1,400-capacity ­theatre every time.”

It is believed that Coleen will star alongside her son Shane Nolan and the role will mean she won’t be on Loose Women for two months.

In other news, Coleen revealed her heartbreak as her sister Linda was recently diagnosed with cancer.

The condition is not curable but doctors are able to treat her and she could still have “years” to live.

Speaking on Loose Women last week Coleen revealed: “My sister Linda had an accident in her home where she fell up the stairs.

“She fractured and broke her hip and went to hospital.

“While they did the scan of her hip, they found secondary cancer. She had been clear of breast cancer for six years.”

Despite the emotional news the star remained positive.

She said: “She isn’t dying of cancer because it is treatable and she could have years, so we have to focus on that.

“We’ll fight as a family.”
