Coleen Nolan has revealed Bucks Fizz's Mike Nolan used to pretend to be related to her and her sisters, Linda, Bernie, Anne, Maureen and Denise
Bucks Fizz's Mike Nolan pretended to be Coleen Nolan's brother.
The 'Making Your Mind Up' singer made a joke about being related to the Nolan Sisters - including Coleen and her siblings Linda, Bernie, Anne, Maureen and Denise - but it stuck and for a long while, everyone was convinced Mike was related to the 'I'm in the Mood for Dancing' singers.
Mike revealed: "I'll tell you what I said. They used to call you the Nolan brothers and then he said to me, this award should be picked up by a Nolan brother. I said, actually I'm their elder sister ... Not that I did drag, what I meant was that you're the Nolan brothers."
To which Coleen retorted: "It was you not denying it! People were going, so are you related to them girls, and you said they're all my sisters."
And the 52-year-old television personality revealed it got to a point where, instead of denying it, she just went along with the mistake.
Speaking on ITV's Loose Women, where she was interviewing The Fizz - Cheryl Baker, Jay Aston, Bobby McVay and Mike - Coleen shared: "But it stayed with us. And when we were on tour and you were on tour, you'd just had a massive hit single and people would go, 'Oh your brother's doing well, isn't he?'
"It got to a point where I was so annoyed about going, 'He's not a brother,' that I started saying, 'Yeah, he's doing great.'"
