The presenter has been very honest about her personal struggles

Since winning Celebrity Big Brother back in January, telly presenter Coleen Nolan has been noticeably missing from the Loose Women panel – we haven’t seen her at all for a whole fortnight!

And the 52-year-old’s absence hasn’t gone unnoticed and has caused some fans to worry about the star’s whereabouts.

But now it turns out there’s a very good reason behind her break from the popular ITV show as Coleen is said to be dealing with issues in both her personal and public life.

A rep told Best magazine: ‘Coleen is touched by everyone’s concern.

‘The truth is she needs some time away from the spotlight to get her head together. With so much going on in her family, she just wanted to be at home, so that’s why she cancelled all her appearances over the last few weeks.’

The Nolans singer has previously admitted that her 10-year marriage to musician, Ray Fensome was ‘in crisis’ and revealed she’s desperate not to get divorced again.

Coleen has been very open about her relationship struggles with hubby, Ray

But after taking a ‘trial separation’ from her hubby in the CBB house she confessed her time away from Ray, who she shares 15-year-old daughter Ciara, made her realise how much she missed him – so hopefully Coleen’s time away from the spotlight will help the couple do this!

And it turns out it’s not just her marriage troubles the star is struggling to deal with as the Coleen’s rep also revealed that she’s fed up of being criticised for her appearance and added: ‘[Coleen] is sick of being criticised on Twitter, and now her allergies have flared up, making her skin sensitive to wearing make-up.

‘She doesn’t want the scrutiny or heartache of being attacked online for not looking her best.’

How sad is that?

Sending Coleen our love and we can’t wait to see her back on the panel soon!
