Coleen Nolan finds it difficult watching her sister Linda Nolan fighting with Jim Davidson on 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
Coleen Nolan hates watching her sister Linda on 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
The TV host claims seeing her sibling's antics on the Channel 5 reality show is excruciating because she feels so stressed about how she is coming across in the house, especially in light of her recent squabbles with comedian Jim Davidson.
She moaned on ITV chat show 'Loose Women' today (20.01.14): "I just want it to end. I would rather be in there than watching, because when you're in there you're unaware of everything in the outside world. When you're at home watching it, it's awful. I can't stand it but I can't stop watching it!"
However, since Linda, 54, has relaxed into things, Coleen has found tuning in a less difficult experience.
She explained: "The last two nights have been bliss because she's just been having a great time, she's been laughing and dancing and singing and just sticking with the younger ones, and finally I can go 'Ooh, she's enjoying it' because it has been hard to watch.
"And as she is my sister, and it's like any of you with family members or friends, you do become so overprotective."
Coleen sympathises with Linda's ongoing feud with Jim, who reduced Linda to tears on last Thursday's show (16.01.14) by bringing up her late husband Brian, who was filmed stealing £20 from comedian Frank Carson's wallet at Blackpool's South Pier in the 1990s.
She mused: "I know where Linda is coming from, I'm not going to sit here and slag off Jim Davidson, but I know where she's coming from with all of that.
"However her being my sister, there are times when I want to run in there and go, 'Back off now, calm it down or go in the garden and have it out both of you.' But it is really difficult because I can't get in there and say it."
