Coleen Nolan said she's having a "stressful time" on Loose Women, after reports emerged claiming a number of panelists were refusing to work with her on the show.

Nadia Sawalha, Stacey Solomon and Carol McGiffin were reported to have told ITV bosses that they did not want to appear on the show wither her – but ITV and Coleen have denied the claims.

Coleen, 56, had told her 265,000 Twitter followers that they would be discussing the claims on Loose Women – and she would be seeking legal advice.

The singer was on the first episode of the week alongside Christine Lampard, Sophie Morgan and Carol McGiffin – one of the hosts who had allegedly had a falling-out with Coleen.

While fans waited to hear what they had to say, the ladies got on with the presenting, eventually getting to a segment about big birthday bashes.

A black and white picture was shown of Coleen celebrating her 21st, while her co-stars made jokes about her throwback appearance.

Soon, Coleen put her hand to her head and said she was having a "stressful time" already without the tongue-in-cheek jokes.

According to the Mail on Sunday, Carol, Nadia and Stacey had told Loose Women bosses they didn't want to work with Coleen any more.

Since, a number of the show's stars – including Stacey – have spoken out in defence of Coleen.

Sharing Coleen's denial, Stacey added: "What Coleen said. I'm doing my absolute best not to highlight the article or mention the paper or say anything really that might get them the clickbait reactions they are after."

Brenda Edwards said: "Coleen it's always a pleasure to hang out with you at work and also out of work, you have always made me feel so welcome, and I appreciate the straight talking, fun friendship we have! Keep smiling in the face of adversity my lovely."

And Janet Street-Porter wrote: "I love working with Coleen Nolan and we've never had a single disagreement – sorry if that's not 'news' xx."

While Coleen's own statement read: "Nothing printed in the Mail article today is true and I am taking legal advice about the slurs on me personally. We'll also be addressing it on Loose Women. Thanks for your support. Love Coleen."

Loose Women airs weekdays at 12.30pm on ITV
