Vigilante TV Repair Man has claimed another victory today as Coleen Nolan announced she is to quit ITV daytime chat show Loose Women.
The lunchtime show features a panel of four celebrity women who interview other celebs and discuss the issues of the day.
The pool of female panellists includes such luminaries as actresses Sherrie Hewson, Denise Welch and Lynda Bellingham, former weather girl Andrea McLean and assorted broadcasters.
But it will no longer include Coleen - a former member of singing group The Nolan Sisters - after the show takes a summer break later in the year.
Coleen has publicly said she wants time to concentrate on other projects but a show insider told us: "All the girls have been nervous since the TV Repair Man went public a couple of weeks ago.
"Coleen feels she has a duty to her extended family not to take any risks with this desperate vigilante, so she decided to walk."
The TV Repair Man has vowed to rid the schedules of "reality" shows and what he describes as banal daytime programming.
After Cooleen's announcement he told EIF News & Features: "Another strike for decent TV - for the daytime viewers starved of informed discussion.
"Loose Women describes itself as a 'debate show.' The producers and schedulers need to use a dictionary!
"However, this is a glorious blow! What former member of a group of Irish singing sisters will the ITV find to fill this gap?
"Advance, viewers everywhere! The day will soon be ours."
