Celebrity Big Brother 2012: Coleen Nolan reveals Denise Welch told her not to enter the house

Coleen Nolan (Celebrity Big Brother 2012)

Celebrity Big Brother runner up Coleen Nolan has revealed that her Loose Women co-star Denise Welch told her not to enter the show.

Despite winning the series back in January, Denise warned Coleen that the show "ruined her life".

Speaking in a press conference call this morning after last night's final, Coleen revealed: "I got one text the day before I went in and it just said 'Don't do it, it ruined my life'.

"Maybe it wasn't great for Denise to do but I think I was in a better place than she was at the time."

Coleen added: "I went in there happy in my own life and everything was good, and I still [struggled] with my emotions. So to go in there with any kind of troubles and unhappiness - which I think Denise did, obviously tenfold - it must have been so much worse than it was for me."

Coleen finished second behind Julian Clary last night, and insisted she had "no regrets" about her time on the show... but wouldn't do it again!

"[I did it] for my kids and money… and the experiment of it," she said. "[It was] fascinating to be part of, but if they offered me the world I wouldn't do it again."
