Who is Coleen Nolan’s son Shane? – The Sun

SHANE Nolan is a child of Coleen Nolan and Shane Ritchie, two of Britain's biggest TV stars.

The pair have two children, Shane and his younger brother Jake.


Who is Coleen Nolan's son Shane?

Shane Nolan is the 30-year-old son of Loose Women star Coleen Nolan and EastEnders actor Shane Ritchie.

He is a singer and entertainer who recently made headlines when he supported his mother in her argument with Kim Woodburn.

In a Tweet, he had said: "Great television on @LooseWomen, however I really don't think Kim should of been a guest.

"She's clearly not in the right mental state. Either that or she's a brilliant actress. #LooseWomen #TeamCol".

He regularly performs as the lead singer of The Nolan Band which tours around the UK.

Has Shane changed his surname?

In November 2020, Shane told pals he’s considering changing his name back after the soap star prepared to enter I’m A Celebrity.

Shane Jnr used his dad’s surname but changed it to Nolan in 2017 when his mum, Loose Women star Coleen, took part in Celebrity Big Brother.

Shane Jnr, the soap star’s eldest son, has joked he could change his name back again.

A pal said: “Shane Jnr is hugely supportive of his mum and his dad and will do anything to publicly show his love for them.

“When Coleen was in Celebrity Big Brother he stopped using Richie and is now known as Shane Nolan. He did this to support her and to show her how much he cared and respected her.

“It was really sweet and meant so much. After his mates found out his dad Shane was heading to Wales for I’m A Celeb they joked about whether he would change it back to Richie and he’d said he would think about it.

“If he did change his surname it would just be a laugh and something he’s doing to support his old man.”

Did Shane join Celebs Go Dating?

It was being reported that Shane is set to have a go at reality TV like his mother and appear on Celebs Go Dating.

According to the Daily Star, a source has said: "Producers have had a number of meetings with Shane about him doing the show. They think he'd be great."

This isn't the first time this has been reported, as the Mirror previously had a source tell them: "Shane has grown up in the public eye and has always been heavily associated with his parents.

"Seeing him out doing his own thing on Celebs Go Dating will be amazing and will finally give the public an insight to what he’s really like.

"Shane’s very warm and likeable, as well as incredibly funny. Fans will definitely love him and he’d be a great addition to the cast."

However, a TV insider told The Sun Online at the time that Shane hadn't been booked to appear on the show and he didn't go on to make an appearance.


How many children does Coleen Nolan have?

Coleen and Shane were married from 1990 until 1999 and share 31-year-old Shane and his brother Jake, 28.

The actor – whose real name is Shane Roche – went on to marry Christie Goddard in 2007 and the pair have three children together.

The star, 55, paid a fulsome tribute to her ex last while he was in the I'm A Celeb castle, telling Shane Jr: "He's very funny – well, we know that. He's really kept his cool."
