COLEEN Nolan is perhaps best known for being a panelist on ITV daytime show Loose Women.
Before her presenting career began, the 56-year-old was in a very successful band with her sisters.
What did young Coleen Nolan look like?
In her younger days, Coleen showed off her natural beauty and sported a mullet and flashed rings on both fingers as she posed for a picture on her 21st birthday in 1986.
The star had a good sense of style in her younger years, as she can also be seen wearing a chic low cut top while showing a cute necklace in another old photo.
When she was just 14, Coleen opened up about the moment Jimmy Savile begged her to go back to his hotel room.
The 56-year-old met the paedophile when she appeared on Top Of The Pops with her sisters to perform and has now recalled what happened on Piers Morgan's Life Stories.
“You know when it came out about Jimmy Saville I wasn’t in any way shocked, thinking about it. I was 14 [years old] there and that same night, he asked me to go to his hotel.
She added: "Well at the time I just thought you dirty old man. As if I’m going to go up there, I wouldn’t do it anyway. I’ve got four sisters on the stage that would have beaten the crap out of him."
What is Coleen Nolan famous for?
Coleen Nolan shot to fame as a member of Anglo-Irish girl group The Nolans.
They had several hits which included "I'm In the Mood for Dancing", which peaked at number 3 in the UK charts in 1979.
They were very successful in Japan, and they made history by becoming the first European act to win the Tokyo Music Festival with "Sexy Music" in 1981, before winning a Japanese Grammy Award (Tokubetsu Kikaku Shō) in 1992.
At the turn of the millennium, Nolan forayed into TV presenting and co-presented ITV's This Morning from 2001-2002 and she also secured a seat on the panel of Loose Women from 2000 and is still present on the show today.
How many Nolan sisters are there?
Coleen has four sisters, Anne, Linda, Maureen and Bernie, who passed away at 52 from breast cancer in 2013.
The Loose Woman panelist, who is the youngest sister, says Bernie "wouldn't accept" she was dying during her cancer battle.
The star told Piers Morgan: "Bernie would not accept any other scenario except she’s going to live.
"What ever they said, she was going to live. And I guess she convinced us of that as well.
"I’ll never ever forget her. And we talk about her as if she’s still here and it still does feel like she’s a massive part of our family because whatever we do, Bernie is mentioned.
"Sometimes sadly because everything we do we say, Bernie would love this. She was just so full of life and it was, it was… hard."
What is Coleen Nolan's net worth?
Coleen's net worth is an impressive £3million, according to Spears Magazine.
She has also featured in a number of short films including Lemon La Vida Loca and The Nolans Go Cruising.
The mother-of-three also writes a weekly column in Best magazine.
