On Loose Women today Pete Wicks appeared on the show to give an update on how his ex-girlfriend Megan McKenna is doing after it was announced the weekend that former boyfriend Mike Thalassitis had taken his own life.
Megan was meant to appear on the show with Pete to talk about the final week of Celebs Go Dating when the producers decided to get Pete to talk about men’s mental health.
Pete said on Tuesday afternoon that he had spoken to Mega since the news broke as he said:
‘I’ve spoken to her very briefly and I think Megan needs time to process what’s happened it was a big shock for everyone, especially for Megan. She’ll be OK it’s tough for anyone to deal with’.
Then talking about finding out that Mike had passed away he continued to say:
‘On Saturday night, I was out with friends. It was such a tragic thing to happen to anyone who is in public eye hard for his family my thoughts go out to his family’.
Speaking on men dealing with mental health as a man in the public eye, he went on: ‘When people see people in the public eye, it’s very glamorous life, you’re living your best life… but you never know what’s going on in closed doors…
He then continued to say:
‘Everyone has their struggles and it becomes more shocking when it’s everyone who knows nationally. I’ve dealt with that myself anything you go through you put yourself in TV where everyone can judge you for everything…
‘You do not necessarily something should happen when you have to go through anything on social media it’s heightened and escalated it has a different effect’.
It all kicked off on Loose Women on Friday afternoon as Jane Moore kicked off at fellow Loose Women panelist Kaye Adams forcing host Andrea McLean to step in and split them up.
It was during a conversation about obese kids when Jane called Kaye ‘stupid’ over her comments.
Throughout the whole show there was a frosty tension between all the women and it seem to be awkward viewing.
Kaye started off by saying:
“I don’t think it’s helpful to blame parents, as a parent myself I do find it difficult.
“We are surrounded with unhealthy options, rubbish food is cheaper.
Jane then said back:
“I get all that, but a four-year-old severely obese, you’re taking away people’s responsibility.
“If you have an obese four-year-old it’s because you as a parent have fed them rubbish.
“You can’t say it’s not my fault, I don’t understand about junk food.”
Kaye then hit back with:
“That’s so unfair Jane, we have fetished food, a lot of people don’t live in beautiful kitchens, they work shifts.”
The pair gave little digs at one and other thought the programme and it didn’t go unnoticed by the viewing public.
Viewers took to social media after it all kicked off as one person said:
More news to come.
She’s been on Loose Women since day dot of the show but today Coleen Nolan has decided to quit the show for the time being after she was branded a ‘bully’ by the viewers over the interview with Kim Woodburn last week.
Coleen’s management announced today that she has decided to pull out of all of her TV work and her upcoming tour what was set to start in January 2019.
It was only on Monday that Coleen announced that she is going to go on tour solo for the first time but it seems all the drama over the last week has caused her to her to want some time off.
In a statement released by Coleen she said:
“Following the constant online bullying, trolling and misrepresentation of her words and reactions, it is with sad regret that Coleen is taking an immediate hiatus from all her current commitments including Loose Women and postponing her Never Too late solo concert tour.
“Coleen is devastated to let her supporters and fans down, but is currently not strong enough to withstand this constant unfounded online abuse, so she will be taking time out and spending it with her children and family where she feels loved and respected.”
It all got emotional on This Morning on Tuesday after Coleen Nolan appeared on the show to talk about her new tour but it wasn’t the tour what got her upset!
Presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby asked Coleen about that interview last week when Kim Woodburn was on Loose Women and it leaded to a petition being created asking for Coleen to be sacked.
