Coleen Nolan introduces new Tinder boyfriend in tell-all interview
Coleen Nolan has said marriage is "inevitable" after finding love again on Tinder with supermarket worker Michael Jones.
The 56-year-old Loose Women star has been married twice before but says her new relationship is the most "comfortable and lovely" she has ever had.
Nolan told OK! magazine she and Jones discuss marriage "all the time". "He’ll go, 'It’s just inevitable really, isn’t it?' And I’ll say, 'Yeah!'" she added.

"This definitely feels like the first time I’ve ever gone into a relationship as an emotionally mature woman. It’s so comfortable and lovely and peaceful... there aren’t enough adjectives really."
The Nolan Sisters star met 57-year-old Jones on dating app Tinder seven months ago — and revealed their first date went so well they were still talking when the pub closed for the night.

Nolan said: "I said to the kids, 'I’ll be home in an hour!' I’d been on quite a few Tinder dates, and they were all lovely, but you kind of know instantly that it’s not going to be any more than that.
"We just never stopped talking. At the end the pub owner was like, 'I’m not forcing you to leave but I’m just taking my dogs for a walk.' He left us in the pub!"
And the TV star said her sex life has been reawakened.
She confessed: "It’s just lovely to know that I’m not dead from the waist down! It’s better than ever and it’s all in working order. It’s a fantastic feeling."
Nolan is mother to 33-year-old son Shane Jr, 33, and 29-year-old Jake with her first husband Shane Richie, and 20-year-old daughter Ciara with her second husband Ray.
Jones has a 20-year-old son Nico from a previous marriage.
Nolan said Jones had been welcomed by all her family.
She said: "My kids have seen me go through hell. They were just terrified I was going to be hurt again."
Nolan recently revealed she is taking legal action over claims of a feud between her and some of the Loose Women panellists.

But when she appeared live on the show on 10 January one day after issuing her statement, the issue was not mentioned.
She said: "I could never be 'high and mighty' because my mother would jump up from her grave and batter me. I can’t stand divas of any kind. I’ve had enough drama in my life, I don’t need any more!"
