Coleen Nolan has pulled out of an appearance on Thursday’s Loose Women and cancelled radio appearances in the wake of her TV clash with Kim Woodburn.
A representative for the Loose Women panellist, 53, said she is still “very upset” over recent events and wants to spend time with her family.
She rowed with Kim, 76, on Loose Women last week and then broke down in tears on Tuesday’s This Morning while detailing the vile trolling she’s been subjected to over the incident.
A tweet from Coleen’s official Twitter account, run by her management, read: “Just to let everyone know – Coleen won’t be on @loosewomen on Thursday she’s decided to go home & spend time with her family instead.

Meanwhile, BBC presenter Carla Greene, who was due to interview Coleen on Wednesday morning, tweeted: “Sadly Coleen has pulled out of BBC local radio interviews today.”

Coleen and Kim clashed on Loose Women last week after producers set up a reunion between them in a bid to patch up differences from their falling out on Celebrity Big Brother last year.
However, it didn’t go well with Kim, 76, storming off set in tears after she and Coleen exchanged harsh words with each other.
Some viewers branded Coleen a “bully”, an allegation the singer vehemently denied.
Coleen broke down in tears to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on This Morning over the ordeal and the vicious trolling she’s received.
Reflecting on the argument with Kim, Coleen said: “If I could go back in time, I would change the whole thing because it was never meant to be like that.
“I don’t like to see anybody in that much distress, like [Kim] was at the end. It’s been the worst week of my life actually.”
The presenter said she’s received “revolting” messages, adding: “I’ve never called [Kim] names and she’s called me every name under the sun.
“I can deal with that, but to be called a bully and to have messages saying, ‘why can’t you die like your sister’ and ‘why can’t you get cancer like your sister’,” referring to her sister Bernie’s tragic passing in 2013.
She added: “There’s a campaign to get me fired. They talk about me being a bully and they send me these revolting messages to the point where I cancelled everything last week and I said to my kids, ‘I don’t want to do [the job] anymore.’
“I would never wish harm on Kim, I don’t hate Kim. We’ll never be friends and that’s fine but I would never set out to bully her. It’s just been a really hard week.”
Following the incident last week, Kim released a statement saying she felt “incredibly sad” and “disappointed” over how the interview panned out, claiming she had been told Coleen wanted to bury the hatchet and would speak first on air, and when that didn’t happen she felt blindsided.
A rep for Coleen said the TV reunion was the producers’ idea, not Coleen’s, as she has no control over guests.
A spokesperson for Loose Women said: “Kim agreed to come onto the panel today at the invitation of the producers on the understanding it was for a reconciliation with Coleen.
“Kim becoming upset was never the intention and the panel did endeavour to comfort her. She was offered counselling after the show, which she declined.”
