Kym Marsh has suggested it was “silly” to think Coleen Nolan and Kim Woodburn could patch up their differences live on Loose Women.
She used her latest OK! Magazine column to discuss the fall-out from Coleen and Kim being reunited by producers on TV two weeks ago in a bid to bury the hatchet following a previous clash on Celebrity Big Brother.
But it didn’t go to plan with Kim, 76, storming off set upset and Coleen, 53, being accused of ‘bully’ tactics, an allegation she has vehemently denied.
In her new OK! Magazine column, out now, Kym remarked: “I do think it’s unfair that people are pin-pointing Coleen specifically. Kim had been invited on the show to see if they could end their feud, which started when they were on Celebrity Big Brother together last year.
“I love Loose Women but I think they should’ve just had their chat privately. It was silly – they weren’t going to kiss and make up.
“Mind you, Kim knew what she was getting into. If I were her, I wouldn’t have agreed in the first place to go on a live TV show with the person I’d had an argument with, her sister and her daily work colleagues!
“She clearly felt very upset but she set herself up for a fall.”

Kym has claimed she was invited on Loose Women as Coleen wanted to resolve their differences, and had been told Coleen would speak first. But when that didn’t happen, Kim says she felt blindsided.
Coleen’s rep, however, has said Coleen did not set the meeting up and it was producers who decided Kim should come on the show.
Coleen has since postponed her planned solo tour, which was due to start in January, and taken a break from her Loose Women panel commitments.
A statement released by her rep last week said: “Following the constant online bullying, trolling and misrepresentation of her words and reactions, it is with sad regret that Coleen is taking an immediate hiatus form all her current commitments including Loose Women and postponing her Never Too Late solo concert tour.

“Coleen is devastated to let her supporters and fans down, but is currently not strong enough to withstand this constant unfounded online abuse, so she will be taking time out and spending it with her children and family where she feels loved and respected.”
