Loose Women panellist Coleen Nolan has broken her silence after clashing with Kim Woodburn on the ITV chat show earlier this week.
Celebrity cleaner Kim stormed off the show's stage on Wednesday, branding Coleen 'trash' and a 'bully' over comments made on Loose Women.
And now, Coleen has spoken out after Ofcom received more than 3,300 complaints over the row, and over 5,600 viewers signed a petition to have her removed from the show.
"Anyone that knows me knows I'm not a bully," Coleen has now told the Mirror. "That would be the most hurtful thing people could call me."
Coleen also seemed to hold the show's producers responsible, saying that she was told Kim wanted to 'make peace' on their feud that began in January 2017 when the pair starred in the Celebrity Big Brother house together.
She continued: "I didn't want to do the reunion. It was the producers who said she wanted to make peace. I agreed because I was happy to draw a line under past differences.
"From the moment she arrived, it was clear Kim didn't want to make up. Now I wish I could go back in time and not do it. It was ugly, upsetting and unpleasant for everyone."
Despite Janet Street-Porter's best efforts to diffuse the situation, How Clean Is Your House star Kim stormed off the stage in a fit of rage after discussing her traumatic childhood.
"That's what I lived with," Coleen appeared to say under her breath as Kim opened up.
But the Loose Women star has now explained that she wasn't making the comment in reference to Kim discussing her younger years, but instead to the venting.
She reiterated: "I hadn't heard what she was saying. I was commenting on how she was ranting, not what she was saying about her childhood."
While it doesn't sound like the pair will be BFFs anytime soon, Coleen wished Kim well, but said that she doesn't want to ever star on TV with her again.
Following the show, ITV released a statement which read: "Kim agreed to come on the understanding it was for a reconciliation with Coleen. Kim becoming upset was never the intention and the panel did endeavour to comfort her.
"She was offered counselling after the show, which she declined."
Kim has called for Coleen to be sacked from Loose Women.
