Coleen Nolan is best known as a panellist on Loose Women these days, but as a pop singer, she had some unusual celebrity contacts, including getting spit on.
Coleen gained chart success with her sisters as The Nolans in the 1980s and early 1990s, with singles including I’m in the Mood for Dancing.
Coleen, Maureen, Anne, Bernie, Linda, and Denise, popularly known as The Nolan Sisters, were members of The Nolans in various combinations throughout the years.
Their breakthrough led to tours and appearances on Top of the Pops, the popular British chart programme.
Coleen was unfortunately spat on by a punk band during one of the group’s numerous visits on the show.
‘At Top of the Pops, we got spat on by another group,’ she confessed on Loose Women during a discussion about concert ettiquete.
‘Yeah one of those punk groups,’ continued the pop star as her horrified co-star said: ‘You got spat on?’
Coleen had the last laugh though, adding: ‘Where are they now, that’s what I say!’
The audience and panel both burst out laughing as she said that this was a genuine tale that occurred as she walked down the corridor of the BBC programme.
‘That’s disgusting,’ said her co-stars, which Coleen agreed, although she didn’t give away which band did it.
In 1979, 1980, and 1981, the Nolans featured on the now-defunct music show, frequently singing their chart-topping I’m In The Mood For Dancing.
Loose Women airs weekdays from 12.30pm on ITV
