'EastEnders' star Shane Richie took a cheeky swipe at his ex-wife Coleen Nolan's daytime TV show 'Loose Women' when it was announced it had been dropped from ITV's schedule on Friday (24.06.16) to make way for coverage on the UK's EU referendum result
Shane Richie poked fun at his ex-wife Coleen Nolan's TV show 'Loose Women' for being dropped for extended EU referendum coverage.
The 'EastEnders' actor has regularly been the topic of conversation, often unfavourably, on the live ITV daytime chat show that is regularly hosted by Coleen - whom he divorced in 1999 - Ruth Langsford or Andrea McClean.
On Friday (24.6.16) Shane made his feelings about the programme clear when he took to Twitter with the simple words: "Every cloud..." which he included on a retweet of the announcement from the official 'Loose Women' Twitter account of the panel chat show which read: "Due to the # Brexit vote, @ITV will be airing rolling news coverage this morning and there will be no live Loose Women today. (sic)"
Together, Shane, 52, and Coleen, 51, have two sons, Rixton singer Jake Roche, 23, and 27-year-old Shane Rochie Jr.
ITV decided to shake-up their scheduling, dropping 'Loose Woman' and 'This Morning' for the day, in order to screen the coverage and reaction to the UK's shock decision to vote in favour to leave the European Union and David Cameron 's subsequent resignation as Prime Minister.
