Former Loose Women panellist Andrea McLean has got a matching tattoo with her husband Nick Feeney.
Taking to Instagram on Friday 18 February, Andrea, 52, teased that they’d had something booked in since November and, while the activity they were about to do wasn’t a first for her, it was for husband of four years, Nick.
In the video shared to social media, Nick could be seen proudly showing off his new tattoo that covered his wrist and hand and joked that he’s “so grown up” after getting it.
Andrea then showed off hers which she had done in the same place.
She wrote next to her video: “So… yesterday this happened… It’s something Nick has toyed with for a few years, but he’s never known what to get as it had to mean something.”
Explaining the reasoning behind their tattoos, which were made up of heartbeats and a feather, Andrea said: “Why the heartbeat? To remind us that life is meant to have ups and downs. If there are no highs and lows then you are flatlining, which means you aren’t living life to the full. It’s about enjoying the journey, the experience, the climb.”
“Why three heartbeats?,” she went on. “To remind us to Live, to Learn and to Thrive – the cornerstones of This Girl Is On Fire, how we live our life.
“Why the feather? Because he is my wingman and I am his. To remind us that life is finite and to love every moment. To be comforted in the fact that while one day our hearts will stop beating, love lasts forever – not just for the two of us but everyone we love and who loves us.”

Andrea’s celebrity pals were quick to gush over the former Loose Women panellist and her husband’s new ink.
Kirsty Gallagher wrote: “You unicorns did it!!! Yay!”, as Magic FM radio host Emma B said: “Gawgeousssssssss,” followed with a string of heart emojis.
“Beautiful, i love the meaning behind them,” wrote another of Andrea’s followers, as a fourth person penned: “Awww beautiful and forever hearts beating together.”
Andrea left Loose Women in December 2020, and later revealed that she didn’t tell her colleagues in advance.
She told The Sunday Mirror’s Notebook last year: “I didn’t breathe a word to anybody because I felt like it was such a personal decision.
“The hardest person to tell was Brenda Edwards, because we’ve become so close. She just burst into tears and ran out of the room.
“I know her well enough to know not to follow her.”
“So I let her have her moment and she came back about five times. It was quite funny, actually,” Andrea added.
