Coleen Nolan explains why she did not address feud claims on 'Loose Women' as promised
Coleen Nolan has apologised after she failed to address the claims of a feud among the Loose Women panellists live on air.
The Nolan Sisters star had promised her 265k Twitter followers she would be discussing the claims of a dispute between co-stars of the ITV panel show - adding that she is taking legal action.
But when she appeared live on the show on 10 January one day after issuing her statement, the issue was not mentioned.
Nolan, 56, has now tweeted an update saying: "I’m so sorry we couldn’t say what we planned to today but my lawyer advised me to go through the legal process, but rest assured you will hear the outcome of this and I will share it when I can. Thank you all for your support as ever, Love Coleen x"

The report claimed that some members of the Loose Women panellists were refusing to work with Nolan after her showbiz agent Melanie Blake had clashed with Nadia Sawalha on Twitter.
An ITV spokesperson said: "This story is untrue. Panellists are chosen for each show by the Loose Women Editor and senior production team, not the panellists themselves."
Nolan said: "Nothing printed in The Mail article today is true & I am taking legal advice about the slurs on me personally. We’ll also be addressing it on @loosewomen. Thanks for your support. Love Coleen xx"
Blake herself has tweeted: "100% UNTRUE story about Coleen & myself & LW. No one came to us for comment, Coleen, myself & ITV have now all confirmed to The Mail, it’s all lies & should not be online. *No one is refusing to work with Coleen. *I’m no longer at war with Nadia Sawalha."
And Nolan's Loose Women co-stars have leapt to her defence.
Her fellow panellists including Stacey Solomon, Brenda Edwards, Kaye Adams and Janet Street Porter have spoken out offering her their support and joining her in denying the rumours.
Edwards said: "@NolanColeen it’s always a pleasure to hang with you at work @loosewomen and also out of work, you have always made me feel so welcome, and I appreciate the straight talking, fun friendship we have!! Keep smiling in the face of adversity my lovely."

Street Porter tweeted: "I love working with Coleen Nolan and we’ve never had a single disagreement- sorry if that’s not ‘news’ xx"
Adams commented: "Pretty sick that we have to even respond to this puerile nonsense."
And Solomon wrote: "What Coleen said."
The ITV daytime panel show launched in 1999 and Nolan has been a regular panellist since 2000.
