Loose Women panellist Coleen Nolan sometimes worries about the age gap between herself and her mystery boyfriend.
After meeting on a dating app last year, the 55-year-old and her 47-year-old partner seem fairly set on one another, despite being kept apart by lockdown.
Discussing her love life with The Mirror, Coleen admitted: "He's 47 and I'm 55 and, although there are only eight years between us, I have moments of worrying I'm a bit too old for him.
"On the other hand, we both have a similar outlook and are in the same place in our lives. He's divorced with children, as am I, so we have a lot in common, too," she continued.
Further along, the TV star suggested that a person's "attitude" is the key to a successful age-gap relationship.
"You can be an old soul at 30 and find people of your own age tiresome, or a young 50-year- old who's still keen to party and is better suited to someone younger."
Even though she remains positive about their future together, Coleen also confessed that their age difference might become an issue eventually.
"I suppose my insecurity with dating someone a lot younger would be that he'd get to a point where he thought I was too old for him, or that I'd start to feel old because I was with someone so much younger."
