Speaking with the panel, Coleen explained: “This last year has been very painful. Very painful for the both of you.
“[Ray and I] split and were now divorced. We have never been as good friends as we are now.”
Coleen, who split from Ray in 2017 following their 17-year marriage, added that she couldnt bare the thought of her former husband being alone during the festivities.
Speaking of the father of her 17-year-old daughter Ciara, Coleen shared: “I couldnt think anything worse than Ray being alone and weve got Ciara together.
“So he is coming over on Christmas Eve and staying until Boxing Day.”
As Coleen shared her plans, both the audience and her co-stars applauded in respect for the decision.
