Coleen Nolan bid an emotional farewell to 'Loose Women' today (28.07.11).
And to my family. I'll never forget this show. It has been my life. It will always be my life and I'll always be grateful for it. I love every one of you and all of you at home.
The outspoken host - who has been a panellist on the ITV1 daytime show for 11 years - couldn't hold back her tears as she filmed her final episode, in which she thanked her colleagues and loyal viewers.
Coleen - who was joined on the panel by Kate Thornton, Sherrie Hewson and Denise Welch - said: "I just want to say thank you to everyone obviously all you girls. I know we will be friends forever so it's not goodbye for us but to all the people that have been involved in the show backstage - thank you.
"But more importantly I want to thank you the audience and you at home because you have been through my life with me and you've stood by me for eleven years. You have made me what I am today.
"And to my family. I'll never forget this show. It has been my life. It will always be my life and I'll always be grateful for it. I love every one of you and all of you at home."
Coleen, 46, and the panel watched in tears as highlights from her 11 years were shown and Brian Conley serenaded her with a version of Cole Porter's classic `It's de - Lovely'.
She then closed the show with a surprise performance of Carole King's `Say Goodbye Today' which saw husband, Ray Fensome play guitar.
