Coleen Nolan And Shane Richie Support Son Shane Jr At His New Musical's Opening Night (PICS)

Former couple Coleen Nolan and Shane Richie made a rare appearance together on Tuesday night, to support their son Shane Jr at the opening night of his musical ‘Last Night A DJ Saved My Life’.

Coleen and Shane divorced 16 years ago and it’s fair to say the split wasn’t exactly amicable, but they were all smiles at the event in Blackpool.

Shane Jr was also joined by his brother, Jake Roche, who arrived with his Rixton bandmates.

Coleen has previously opened up about her divorce, and back in 2011, she explained that the split came when she found proof of the actor’s infidelity.

“During the years we were together Shane also had a long-running affair with a dancer,” she wrote in a Daily Mirror column. “Later I discovered there had been plenty of other women too. It totally destroyed me.

“But when our marriage ended it virtually destroyed Shane too. He was devastated that his cheating had destroyed our family, broken our hearts and caused untold damage for our sons.”

The Richie-Nolan family are currently getting ready for another wedding, as Jake is set to wed his Little Mix fiancée Jesy Nelson.

The singer proposed with a super romantic proposal, getting down on one knee while Ed Sheeran gave a private performance.
