Loose Women’s Nadia Sawalha thanks fans for support after she’s slammed by Coleen Nolan manager

LOOSE Women star Nadia Sawalha has thanked fans for their support after she was slammed by Coleen Nolan's manager earlier this week.

Nadia, 55, said she hadn't "had the best couple of days" but had received plenty of messages which reminded her there are "more good than bad people".

Posting a video on Twitter, she said: "I haven’t had the best couple of days, but not every day can be the best day, can it?

"I just want to say a big thank you to my friends and colleagues, the strangers, the followers, the subscribers that have messaged me both privately and on here.

"You’ve warmed my hearat and left me finishing my day remembering that there are more good people than bad people.

"In my experience most people that seem bad are usually just quite sad.

"So thank you so much , I really appreciate it."

Melanie Blake, boss of Urban Associates talent agency, which represents Nadia's Loose Women co-stars Saira Khan and Coleen, ranted about Nadia on Twitter on Thursday.

She lashed out at Nadia after watching the star speak out against body shaming.

Furious Melanie shared a video of Nadia alongside an epic rant, where she slammed her "be kind" speeches and accused her of having a "nasty side".

An ITV source says: "The industry knows that Nadia is the most kind and lovely human being. 

"She is a thoroughly good egg and everyone who works with Nadia only has the best things to say about her."

Melanie's outburst came after Nadia discussed a recent video of her jumping into a swimming pool in her bikini.

She said on the programme: "I am desperate to get into the brains of young women and say: 'Please stop it earlier than we did'.

"It's absolute stinking thinking, nobody in my entire life has ever said anything as nasty to me as I have said to myself.

"How many of you would say the same? That nobody is as mean to you as you are to yourself?

"It really doesn't have to be like that."

In recent months, Nadia has inspired her social media following with a variety of body positivity posts, proudly showing off her half-naked figure in all its glory in a bid to empower women.

This summer, she proudly put her cellulite on display as she shared snaps taken from a bad angle and with unflattering lighting.

In 2018 she stripped off with some of her co-stars for Loose Women’s empowering Body Stories photoshoot – which was a huge deal for her after revealing she was "haunted" by body shaming early in her career.
