POP singer and TV personality Coleen Nolan will be skating her way into Cheshire Oaks next month.
The star of Loose Women and Dancing on Ice will be signing copies of her life story at Borders Books, The Coliseum, at 5pm on Saturday, May 2.
Loved on the TV by millions of viewers for her warmth, openness and quick wit, the former singer of The Nolans has struggled with a broken marriage, coped as a single parent, and tackled weight problems and a lack of self-esteem.
But the 44-year-old has managed to successfully turn her life around to be an inspiration to women everywhere.
Now she’s ready to tell her full story in Upfront and Personal.
In it, Coleen describes singing on stage at the tender age of two and joining her sisters’ group when she was just 15.
The Nolans went on to have chart-topping success around the world – making Coleen a famous teenager who wanted to rebel. As well as the love and laughter there were some tough times growing up in her large Irish family and Coleen tells how she felt when she heard her father had sexually abused her sister Anne.
She writes about the ups and downs of her marriage to Eastenders and Minder star Shane Richie, from their cancelled wedding and subsequent secret elopement to the happy years spent with him and their two young sons, and the soul-destroying impact of his two-year affair.
And she tells how she eventually met musician Ray Fensome, the birth of their daughter and their fairy-tale wedding.
In their time, The Nolans chalked up massive record sales in Britain, Europe and Japan.
Among their various hits, their single I’m In the Mood For Dancing has become a cult classic loved by millions around the world.
