Ruth Langsford opened today’s programme on the sad note.

Turning to Coleen, she said: “Nice to see Coleen back as you weren’t here last week. Sadly, your auntie was very ill and she did pass away.

“Condolences to you and the family – how are you all?”

She was genuinely like a second mum

Coleen responded: “We’re all ok at the moment because when they get to the stage where their time is done, you want them to go to sleep.

“That’s exactly what she did in the end. She was out of pain and we were all there.”

She continued: “The thing about my auntie Theresa was that she was genuinely like a second mum – taking nothing away from my wonderful mother.

“She was my mum’s sister, so when my mum passed away she was the last one of that generation.”

Coleen went on to explain that Theresa was often referred to as the ‘Don’ of the family.

The star added: “She’s just a massive part of your family, so it’s a massive loss. She’s going to be very sadly missed in our family.”
