No Regrets is Coleen Nolan's gripping new memoir about love and heartbreak.
As a member of the Nolan sisters, Coleen Nolan was born into the spotlight and has stayed there ever since. She has now become one of the nation's favourite TV presenters and is used to newspapers and magazines claiming to have the inside story of her private life. In No Regrets Coleen finally reveals the truth of what really happened during the last few rollercoaster years, truly the worst of her life.
Whilst it's certainly been a traumatic time for the whole family, Coleen is a survivor. First and foremost, she is a mum and is determined to hold her family together.
The Nolans finally put aside their infamous feud to rally round their beloved sister Bernie, who tragically lost her fight with cancer on the 4th of July last year, aged just 52. In this memoir, Coleen movingly describes her struggle to deal with the emotional scars that come from losing someone so close and the effect it has had on her own life.
Coleen also reveals the secret that she has been hiding from prying eyes: her second marriage and 'happy ever after' with musician Ray Fensome was pushed to breaking point by a series of rows and separations. Here, for the first time, Coleen reveals how she has battled to save her marriage and to stop her family being torn apart.
In this incredibly candid memoir, Coleen writes with raw honesty about her family troubles, her career highs and lows, and her struggle with her body image. In recent years, Coleen has found herself in both a plastic surgeon's office looking at a Â£20,000 bill to 'fix her face' and at a breast cancer clinic asking for the removal of her healthy breasts to avoid becoming the fourth sister in the family to be struck down by cancer.
Wonderfully warm and moving, and brilliantly funny and honest, No Regrets will take you from laughter to tears and back again as you share in Coleen's very personal journey.
A book to bring laughter, consolation and solid advice for every mum who's found herself wandering blearily round her kitchen in a milkstained dressing, too exhausted by yet another sleepless night to remember what day of the week it is, or been left wondering where it all went wrong as her teenager screams, 'I hate you!' and storms out of the room. Coleen has been a stayathome mum and a working mum, steered her children through toddler tantrums and sibling rivalry, helped with their homework and cheered them on at football, handled their heartbreak at her divorce and the transition to living with a stepfather. She knows how rewarding motherhood is, and how hard. In this book she shares some of her funniest and happiest moments as a mother, as well as the frustrations and tough times every parent faces. She also gives lots of tried and tested, practical advice for each stage of your child's development as well as tips on dealing with issues like bullying, bereavement and divorce. Above all, she reassures us that real mums aren't always perfect, and no one gets it right all the time. Loving your kids and doing your best is what matters.
