The 55-year-old TV star recently confessed to joining four dating apps in search of romance, and her 31-year-old son is keen to support her - even though he's questioned whether she'll "get married or start a relationship again".

Shane said: "She wants to meet someone but I'm not sure she'll get married or start a relationship again."

Coleen - who has Shane with ex-husband Shane Richie - has become well-known for expressing her forthright views on ITV's 'Loose Women'.

Shane admits the response to his mum can be mixed at times, but it's something he's grown to live with over the years.

He told Simon Gross on 'Get Gossy With Grossy': "For every horrible tweet or Instagram post there's 10 lovely ones but obviously you focus on the nasty one.

"As for her being on 'Loose Women', it's part of my life. She's been on it for 19 years. If I'd said anything at home it would be on 'Loose Women'. I've been slated more times on that show than anywhere else.

"She's exactly like she is on telly. She's sarcastic and can have a laugh."

Coleen recently admitted to being worried about being catfished on dating apps.

She said: "It's really difficult, I put this picture on because I have put other pictures on where I've got full make-up on.

"But I thought, actually, they'd better know me from the start. But here's my issue - how do I know it's the real them?"

Coleen also admitted to being a bad flirt.

She shared: "When it comes to going on a date and I fancy someone I turn into a 12-year-old schoolgirl, I forget my own name.

"I'm rubbish, I am the biggest cowardly flirt you'll ever meet."
