The 57-year-old singer-turned-TV presenter is a regular rotating panelist on ITV’s Loose Women. She has often spoken about her personal life on the ITV daytime show and after being single for the past four years following her divorce from Ray Fensome, the former Nolan Sister has confirmed that she is dating again. But where in the UK does she live with her new partner Michael Jones?

Born in the seaside resort of Blackpool, the TV star currently resides in Cheshire with her partner Michael, son Jake Roche and a whopping 15 animals.

Cheshire is located in the North West of England. Its towns and villages are hugely popular with commuters for their quick and easy transport links with the big cities like Manchester, Chester and Liverpool and beautiful countryside surroundings.

Whether by car, train or bus, you’ll find getting around a seamless and picturesque chore. Plus, even in the most rural areas, you can be in any of the three cities within the hour.

Living in Cheshire means you’re just a short commuting distance from Manchester, Liverpool and Chester and you can get to London in less than two hours from Crewe station. This makes it a great location for those who work in the city but want to live somewhere a little quieter.

Cheshire is a highly desirable place to live as house prices are significantly more affordable than most counties in the UK.

According to Rightmove, properties in Cheshire had an overall average house price of £287,681 over the last year.

The majority of sales in Cheshire during the last year were semi-detached properties, selling for an average price of £250,992. Detached properties sold for an average of £480,409, with terraced properties fetching £188,866.

Overall, sold prices in Cheshire over the last year were four percent down on the previous year and 11 percent up on the 2019 peak of £259,838.

There are lots of reasons why Cheshire is a great place to live. From its open countryside and green spaces to its vibrant towns, cosy villages and easy access to the North West’s biggest and brightest cities, this is a county that has something for everyone.

The world-famous Chester Zoo, apart from the obvious attractions, has beautiful gardens, and the Royal Liverpool Golf Course has been host many times to the Walker Cup and has recently also held The Open. 

For motor racing fans, Oulton Park, near Tarporley, holds events in a number of different disciplines between spring and autumn.

The county offers many opportunities to discover it’s fascinating past including Chester with its historic city walls, dating back to the Roman times. 

There are also beautiful castles at Beeston and Peckforton, Port Sunlight on The Wirral, and the Royal Horticultural Society garden at Tatton Park. 

The National Trust has some great places to visit in Cheshire, such as Dunham Massey, The Lovell Quinta Arboretum and Lyme Park & Gardens.

Cheshire is home to a large network of canals, built during the early phases of the Industrial Revolution, including The Cheshire Ring, now providing a thriving leisure industry. 

For those after more vigorous activity, there is fantastic walking trails in some beautiful spots, including the Sandstone Trail, the Peak District (which falls partly within Cheshire), Tegg’s Nose Country Park and Marbury Country Park.

Speaking to The Times for their Fame and Fortune section, Coleen revealed that she owns a second property that she doesn’t live in.

She said: “My very first property cost me £60,000 in Middlesex and recently I saw it on the market for half a million, but the house I’m selling has just sold for £895,000 and Ray and I bought that for £740,000 twelve years ago. 

“I’ll have a mortgage on my new house and I’ve also taken on a small house that my sister lived in that I bought ages ago in Blackpool, so that’s a bit of an investment as well.”

She rarely speaks out about being a second homeowner and her Blackpool house doesn’t feature on her social media channel, unlike her idyllic country home in Cheshire.
