Ray Fensome is a session musician from Leeds, who plays the guitar for bands and singers like Rick Astley, Jonny Wilkes, and Coleen’s band The Nolans when they’re on tour.
He travels the world for his job and is often away from home for weeks on end, including his tour in the States while Coleen was in the Celebrity Big Brother house.
Ray married his ex-wife Coleen Nolan
The pair met in 2000 and had daughter Ciara together in June 2001. Ray proposed to Coleen on her 40th birthday in 2005 and became her biggest fan when she went on Dancing On Ice in 2009.
He admitted to watching her skate with tears in his eyes, telling the Irish Daily Mirror at the time: “The feeling I get when I see Coleen take to the ice is incredible. I feel so proud of her.
In 2018, Coleen Nolan announced their divorce after 17 years together.
The Loose Women star revealed her sad news in her Mirror agony aunt column, admitting she was broken-hearted after fighting “with every fibre of my being” to prolong their marriage.
