Coleen Nolan, 56, is well-known for appearing on the daily ITV talk show Loose Women. However, the star has had some sad news in her personal life as her cat Lily has gone missing.
Coleen’s son Shane Nolan, 29, posted about the news in view of his 42,000 Twitter followers earlier today.
Alongside an image of the missing poster, he wrote: “Also we’ve lost our cat #congleton #missingcat.”
The poster reads: “Lily is a ragdoll with 4 black paws, no collar and the last time she was seen she had a slight scratch under one if her eyes! (sic)
“She’s a mother to 4 kittens we also have at home but she has been spayed.

Back in February, she posted an adorable snap of her pet as she had a cup of tea.
She penned in view of her 253,000 followers: “Joined by the lovely Lily for this morning’s #cuppawithcol.”
Coleen also shared how her cat Lily got pregnant back in January last year.
She wrote: “Don’t think Lily is happy with the local Tom cat that got her into this situation!! #moody #pregnant #ragdoll.”
The family lives in Cheshire after Coleen moved house during last year’s lockdown.
The television personality has also been on ITV screens this week as Loose Women returned to having four panellists in their studio.
This has meant Coleen has had to pop down to London to film new episodes.
She posted about this on Instagram recently, sharing an image of her dogs who were “not happy”.
Coleen penned: “Back down south today, finally can go back to the studio!
“These two aren’t happy about it! #cuppawithcol.”
However, Coleen shared that she was not talking about Loose Women bosses, continuing: “I think that’s the tragedy really, I am very lucky that Loose Women, whether you’re a fan or not, it’s the only show on telly that has women of all ages, all sizes, all colour.
“Outside of that, because sometimes people go, ‘It’s obviously not sexist because you’re on telly every day’ – yeah but from half 12 to half one.”
“But name anyone my age in primetime co-hosting a show, you just don’t see it and I think that’s really sad,” she divulged.
Coleen has been a host on Loose Women since 2000 and is loved by fans for her honest approach to topics and a refreshing sense of humour.
“Sometimes sadly because everything we do we say, Bernie would love this. She was just so full of life and it was, it was… hard.”
The Loose Women star also revealed she “seriously considering” having a double mastectomy following her sibling’s diagnosis, as a hereditary gene in the family means there is an ‘incredibly high’ chance she could develop cancer as well.
“I’ve said, ‘Look what are my chances of this’ and he [the Dr] said, ‘incredibly high’ and although we don’t carry the gene – the known gene BRCA1 and BRCA2 – he said it will be gene related somewhere, it will just be a gene we haven’t found.”
Piers Morgan’s Life Stories airs tonight at 9pm on ITV.
