The Loose Women panelist has spilled the details on Jake’s proposal

Coleen Nolan almost missed the moment her son Jake Roche proposed to Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson – because a security guard tried to throw her off the stage.

Rixton front man Jake proposed to his girlfriend of a year yesterday (July 19) at the Key 103 Summer Live festival in Manchester, where Jesy was performing with Little Mix.

Coleen revealed to her fellow Loose Women panelists that she hid behind a curtain at the side of the stage to watch her son pop the question.

“We had to hide behind the curtains until Jake came out so [Jesy] didn’t spot any of us,” she said. “As Jake came out, we all came out at the side of the stage and one of the security guards tried to throw me out!”

Thankfully, she saw the big moment – which Ed Sheeran made a special appearance for to sing Jesy’s favourite song Tenerife Sea – and Coleen couldn’t be prouder.

“I’m emotionally drained. It was just fabulous,” she said. “Even though they’re both so young, I can’t see [the wedding] being five or six years away. I think they’ll be getting straight onto it in the next year or two.”

Coleen, who’s known for talking openly about Jake, her son with Shane Richie, also revealed that his nerves almost got the better of him.

“He was so nervous from the time he got up in the morning. I said to him afterwards, ‘What did you say?’ and he said, ‘I can’t remember,’ but it ended with ‘will you marry me?’”

She was also impressed that Ed Sheeran made the journey from Suffolk to Manchester especially for Jake, to make the moment extra romantic.

“He came up that morning, just to come out and sing their favourite song,” she said.

Jake certainly pulled out all the stops for his proposal – we can’t wait to see what he’s got in store for the wedding!
