The TV star could be taking drastic action to make her marriage work
The 51-year-old broke down at the weekend after revealing that she was considering a ‘trial separation’ from her husband of 10-years, Ray Fensome in order to make their relationship succeed.
But in a shock move by Coleen, it seems like some time apart is exactly what the pair are going to get as it’s been reported the star has been asked to go on Celebrity Big Brother All Stars Versus New Stars, and has said yes!
An insider told The Daily Star: ‘Everyone is a bit shocked but Coleen has said she will do it.
‘It’s a delicate time so after Christmas she might change her mind but she’s very much on board.’
The Nolans star married guitarist, Ray in November 2007 and the couple have a teenage daughter together, but earlier in the week Coleen bravely revealed that after eight years, her marriage was in crisis.
Speaking frankly to The Mirror, she said: ‘Things have changed massively for us this year.
‘The kids are older and need us less and Ray’s job has taken him away more. But instead of evolving with those changes, our relationship has just hit a wall and it’s only when you’re thrown together again you realise the connection you once had is gone.’
Maybe hinting at her plans to enter the Big Brother house for a second time on January 3rd, the former runner-up went on: ‘It’s important to know what it would be like not to have each other in our lives and it’s a chance to reflect.
‘It would be more of a failure if we just ignored it and carried on. We’ve been in this position before and hopefully we can come through it again.’
Although spending some time apart will hopefully be good for the couple, we’re not so sure it’ll be a relaxing experience for Coleen as other rumoured housemates include Nicola McLean, Bianca Gascoigne and err… Jedward.
Good luck, Coleen!
