Coleen Nolan has spoken about her time on Celebrity Big Brother in 2012, insisting that the show’s producers “literally couldn’t pay me enough” to re-enter the Big Brother house.
In an interview with The Mirror, she explained that she loved watching the series, but would “absolutely not” do it again.
“I always thought it’s a good show. I love things that are kind of even more than physical, like a mental experiment.
“And that’s what Big Brother is. It’s a psychological experiment,” she said.
The Loose Women star continued by saying that being a housemate was “possibly mentally one of the hardest things I’ve ever done.”

“They couldn’t pay me enough to go and do it again. But I enjoyed the experience. I think it’s had a long enough break that it’ll be interesting to see it come back now.”
The Nolans singer, who recently reunited with her boyfriend, said: “I also want to phone them all up and go ‘You have no idea how hard it is’ I don’t think anyone does.
“It was very close to breaking me, completely. 24 hours feels like a week an hour feels like 24 hours. And when I say there is nothing to do.
“There is nothing to do. It is mentally a massive challenge. And I don’t think you’ll ever understand it till you’re in that situation.”

In the same interview, she spoke about rumours that her Loose Women presenting gig is “toxic” and that the panel, which includes Ruth Langsford, don’t get along behind the scenes.
She said: “It’s relentless, and I think it’s very sad because it seems to be a lot of women bashing other women.
“They go on about ‘Oh it’s toxic’, it’s been running for 24 years or something, if it was that toxic, trust me, being the person I am, I wouldn’t be there.”
She then acknowledged her year-long absence from the show in 2012 but clarified that it had “nothing to do with” the other presenters.
“I left for a year, years ago, because I wasn’t enjoying it. But that had nothing to do with the panel that was to do with more to do with people behind the scenes at the time.”
