LOOSE Women star Coleen Nolan came under fire from viewers today after making a string of creepy sex jokes about former Hollyoaks star Danny Mac.
The 54-year-old host was branded a “dirty old women” by viewers, with one gasping: “If a man went in like that with a female guest then he’s be labelled a sex pest.”
Coleen joked that she was prepared for the 31-year-old star‘s arrival by holding a clump of mistletoe over her head so he could kiss her.
When Brenda Edwards went to smooch her, she replied: “I think I’ll save it for when Danny comes on.”
And when he came on to talk about his performance and said: “I throw everything at anything” she reacted bizarrely.
Coleen told him: “Really? Anything, hmm?” Then, fanning herself with a cue card, he added: “Please carry on ladies. I’m having a hot flush.”
One tweeted: “If a male presenter gushed over a female guest the same way that the #LooseWomen do over a male guest, there would be a massive social media uproar!”
Another wrote: “Can you imagine the outrage if there was a bloke on tv perving the way Coleen does?”
A third agreed: “If a man went in like that with a female guest then he’s be labelled a sex pest.”
Referring to a previous conversation about whether the Mr Men books were historically sexist, one added: “Moan about the Mr men books and then sexualise the next male guest.”

However, Danny seemed to take the comments in his stride and smiled when Denise Welch said: “Do you try to shake off the sex symbol image – which we have totally played into as well on this show, I have to say?”
He politely replied: “It’s a flattering thing to get labelled with and it certainly worked in my favour.”
Coleen admitted in a magazine yesterday that she hadn’t had sex in years – but is constantly bombarded with rude pictures from younger men.
She told OK!: “I do keep getting sent d**k pics on Instagram from younger men though – it’s horrendous.
“I think maybe they think I’m a sad lonely woman and I’m going to love it.”
