The singer revealed: “It’s humiliating, for a long time even when I did find out I wanted to try and fight for it.

“People are then looking at you thinking you deserved everything you get.

“It’s when people know and your close circle know. You dread it coming out and it’s the moment that everyone knows. I’d go out to the supermarket shopping and people were so lovely.

“But you’re like don’t pity me, don’t be nice to me or don’t hug me because I’ll cry.”

Coleen is now married to musician Rey Fensome but the star hinted back in February that her marriage is breaking down following her stint in Celebrity Big Brother.

The star has been pretty vocal about the strains on her marriage and hoped being in the CBB house and away from her hubby would help save their relationship.

But as Coleen returned to Loose Women, after winning the show, she revealed she hadn’t spoken to Ray since leaving the show.

During her first appearance back on the ITV show, Coleen said: “Leading up to Big Brother I needed a break, but there were so many times I missed him.

“That was a lovely feeling, because that’s one of the feelings I felt I had lost. We haven’t had a chance to speak since I’ve got out because he is touring America, he’s not back until the 20th.”

Coleen had to take a break from Loose Women to “get her head together” back in March.

Talking to Best magazine Coleen’s rep said: “Coleen is touched by everyone’s concern.

“The truth is she needs some time away from the spotlight to get her head together.”

Coleen admitted she is worried that Ray has already moved on.

“My greatest fear is that Ray has moved on emotionally, that it’s too late to repair the damage and that he won’t forgive me now – too much has happened,” Coleen told Woman’s Own via a pal.
