Kim Woodburn: Celebrity Big Brother winner Coleen Nolan a 'boring fag ash Lil'

TV star Kim Woodburn has lashed out at ex-housemate and Celebrity Big Brother winner Coleen Nolan, saying that the "boring fag ash Lil" should never have won the show.

Loose Women host Nolan, 51, triumphed on this year's reality series after beating twins Jedward, 25, and cleaning guru Woodburn, 74.

But the How Clean Is Your House? star branded Nolan a "shocking woman" with a "rotten mouth".

She said that she had discovered that Nolan had been badmouthing her, despite appearing to be "all sweetness and light".

"How that woman won, when Jedward were sitting there, I have no idea," Woodburn said.

"Public, I don't know how you could let that boring fag ash Lil (win), with what I now know to be a rotten mouth.

"She shouldn't have won that show ... I'm a bit tired of all these people on Loose Women winning ... It was wrong that she won. She was not entertaining and I was disappointed.

"Coleen was running with the foxes and hunting with the hounds. What a shocking woman."

Meanwhile, Nolan called Woodburn "fake".

"She'd go off like a mad woman and then five minutes later become Mrs Doubtfire so you never knew where the hell you were with her," she said.

"I definitely think she's fake ... She went in there knowing that being confrontational gets you air time."

Woodburn, who was challenged over her angry outbursts throughout her time in her Celebrity Big Brother house, accused her ex-housemates of walking around "in gangs".

"It was insufferable. I call that gross, disgusting behaviour," she said. "It riled me. It made me determined that 'I may be on my own, but you're not getting the better of me.

"If you start with me, you're going to get it and ... did they start.

"Bullies need exterminating. They do damage that never goes away... If I hadn't been a strong old broad who's seen life they could have destroyed me. That wasn't going to happen."

The cleaning guru, who came third, described ex-housemate Nicola McLean as "an evil little beggar" who bullied her the most.

McLean shocked viewers when she told Woodburn that her "problem" was that she was not a mother.

Woodburn has previously revealed she delivered a stillborn baby, which she buried in a park.

"I did have a child. My child died," Woodburn said.

She said of her housemates: "They were terrified to say 'hello' in case Nicola had their guts for garters ... If I never see them again, it will be too soon."

Woodburn called herself a "very kind, silly old soul" and said that Irish twins Jedward, the runners-up, were "nice young men".

She said she had done "jolly well" for herself, because at 61 years of age, before she was discovered, she "didn't have a pot to pee in".

"I had a rotten childhood. You were beaten senseless by my mother - carpet brushes, brooms, big wooden coat hangers," she said.

"She loathed me because I looked like my father and he left her. I was punished morning, noon and night. I was a sad little soul, but it gave me an inner strength."

Meanwhile, Nolan said she had still not spoken to her husband on the morning after winning the reality show.

The Loose Women star's marriage has been going through a difficult patch.

"He's touring in America so I won't see him until the end of February," she said of her musician husband Ray Fensome.

"Because of the time difference, we haven't spoken to each other. He texted me to say 'congratulations' and 'you deserved it'. I think we'll talk some time later today."

She said she was hopeful that their relationship would survive, adding: "I did miss him in the house, which is great. When he gets home from America, we'll see how things are and take it from there.

"(Being in the house) put a lot of things in perspective. I realised my life is quite good."

Nolan dismissed "hilarious" speculation that she was flirting with fellow housemate James Cosmo.

"It's very, very sad that people can't look at a man and a woman with a great friendship and not think there's something else involved. We're not 25," she said.

"When I went in there, I wasn't in a great place confidence-wise. That's why it meant so much to win it. I'm still in shock.

"On the first week, I thought I'm not going to be able to survive this, but something inside me said 'I'm not going to walk'.

"I didn't for one minute think I'd get to the final, because they were all such big characters and it felt like I was hated on the outside. Even when I got to the last two, I was convinced Jedward were going to win."
