Coleen Nolan worried her long-lost sister was one of Tuam babies

9th Mar 17 | Entertainment News

In today’s Loose Women, Coleen Nolan confessed she is worried her long-lost half-sister might have been born in the mother and baby home in Tuam, where the remains of up to 800 babies and toddlers were found buried in a mass grave.

As Coleen explained, she was in her late twenties when she discovered her dad had fathered a child with another woman while still married to her mum.

She never met her half-sister, who was born in Ireland.

“I always wondered why she didn’t get in touch and I thought: she could have been one of those babies,” Coleen said.

“It would have been around at that time as she was born in the mid-1950s. I was so shocked when I saw [the news].”
