Loose Women’s Nadia Sawalha, 55, was slammed by Coleen Nolan’s manager Melanie Blake last week, when she called her a “total witch” and accused her of having a “nasty”. It comes after Nadia was seen in footage urging women to love their bodies.

According to reports, the former EastEnders’ actress has unfollowed Coleen on Twitter and Instagram.

However, it has since emerged that Nadia has re-followed her Loose Women co-star.

Coleen, meanwhile, is reportedly not following Nadia on social media.

Express.co.uk has contacted Nadia Sawalha’s representatives for comment.

Nadia’s representative has told The Sun Online that both she and Coleen are good friends, adding that it would have been a mistake if she was unfollowing her on social media.

It comes after the EastEnders’ actress opened up about body shaming with older women and explained how nobody in her “entire life” has ever said anything as nasty to her than she has to “herself”.

Melanie, who runs the agency Urban Associates, which represents Coleen, 55, and Saira Khan, 50 – decided to share the clip of Nadia’s message and reveal her thoughts about the star.

Taking to Instagram, the Loose Women host shared one comment she received on her body positive post, which was a video of herself jumping into a swimming pool while wearing a bikini.

“I’ve got some comments here actually, this woman here, she says she and her sister-in-law always sit as near as they can to the pool because they’re not confident enough to be in a costume,” Nadia began.

“‘Actually I felt like this for years,” she said. “I was told as a woman reaching 50 she should never wear a bikini.”

Nadia continued: “I literally want to be aunty. I think for the older woman it is harder. I really am desperate to get into the younger brains of young women and say, ‘Please stop it earlier than we do.’

“There is this absolute stinking thinking and nobody in my entire life has ever said anything as nasty to me as I have said to myself,” she revealed.

Nadia pressed: “At home, women, how many of you would say the same as that?

“Nobody is as mean to you as you are to yourself and it really doesn’t have to be like that.”

Alongside the clip, Melanie shared on Twitter: “It’s a shame she ‘officially’ gave up acting because Nadia deserves an Oscar for this speech.

“In 20 years of repping clients, I never saw a nastier side to anyone than I did of her & I’m not alone.

“Her constant ‘be kind’ etc speeches are so ironic considering she is a total witch.”

A representative from ITV said at the time: “The entire industry knows that Nadia is the most kind and lovely human being.

“She is a thoroughly good egg and everyone who works with Nadia only has the best things to say about her.”

Loose Women airs weekdays on ITV at 12.30pm.
