The 52-year-old television presenter hasn't been seen on screen for over two weeks, but she's assured fans she's fit and well and is just taking some time away from the spotlight in order to focus on her marriage with her husband Ray Fensome.

A representative for the star told Best magazine: "Coleen is touched by everyone's concern. The truth is she needs some time away from the spotlight to get her head together. With so much going on in her family, she just wanted to be at home, so that's why she cancelled all her appearances over the last few weeks."

Coleen announced in December last year that her 10-year marriage was in crisis and, in a bid to fix things, she agreed to enter the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house in January.

The brunette beauty spent four weeks in the house alongside the likes of Nicola McLean, Kim Woodburn, and Calum Best, and, after she was crowned the winner of the series, she admitted that the time away from Ray made her realise her love for him.

She said at the time: "It's made me realise how much I do need him in my life. Because when things did happen in the house that were hard and were sad, all my housemates were brilliant, but I just thought if he was here he would know exactly how I was feeling."

Coleen also spoke about her marriage woes during her time in the house, telling her housemates: "I do think I'm having a midlife crisis, I don't think it's all him. I'm questioning everything - am I happy? I'm not putting all the blame on him. It's just sad."

The pair got married in 2007 and have 15-year-old daughter Ciara together.
