Coleen Nolan almost walked out of "The Real Full Monty" cancer awareness show.

The "Loose Women" panellist has admitted there were moments in the run-up to the live show, in which she and a group of other celebrity ladies bared their bits to raise awareness of breast cancer, last week where she thought about quitting because she didn't think she'd be able to whip off her bra and flash her bosoms to the nation.

Speaking on "Loose Women" on Tuesday (03.04.18), she said: "We all had dips where we were like: "We can't do it." I honestly meant it when I said I didn't know if I could do that final reveal but it was those girls, they got me through it."

The 53-year-old presenter is most proud of Victoria Derbyshire and Michelle Heaton - who have both battled cancer - because they bared the scars of their illness.

She explained: "Victoria and Michelle, who it really affected personally, it was a hard process for them. It was for all of us but they bare the scares of cancer and it was such an emotional moment to see them own it."

And, although she was terrified before going out on stage, Coleen is so proud of herself for baring her breasts because the message has seemed to have hit home.

The brunette beauty - who sadly lost her sister Bernie Nolan to cancer in 2013 - explained: "I've just got literally all emotional again. It was an amazing experience, I'm so proud of us all. The reaction - so many people have been in touch saying they've made appointments they've put off and been checking themselves and it was a long nine weeks and we just wanted to get the right point across and I think we did."
