Coleen Nolan fears she’s ‘too old’ for new man as he’s almost 10 years younger

Coleen Nolan has revealed her new boyfriend is almost 10 years her junior and she has moments when she worries she’s “too old for him”.

The Loose Women star, 55, went public with her new romance last year after meeting her new man via a dating app.

She’s keeping his identity a secret but she’s now revealed he’s eight years younger than her, but they have a lot in common.

In her weekly newsletter for The Mirror, Coleen explained they’ve spoken about the age gap but it doesn’t seem to be a problem.

She wrote: “I’ve had this discussion with the man I’m seeing.

“He’s 47 and I’m 55 and, although there are only eight years between us, I have moments of worrying I’m a bit too old for him.

“On the other hand, we both have a similar outlook and are in the same place in our lives. He’s divorced with children, as am I, so we have a lot in common, too.”

Coleen went on to admit she thinks age gap relationships can be a success as it all depends on whether couples have the same “attitude to life”.

She went on: “I think your attitude to life has a lot to do with the success of an age-gap relationship.

“You can be an old soul at 30 and find people of your own age tiresome or a young 50 year old who’s still keen to party and is better suited to someone younger.”

However, Coleen can’t help but worry about whether the eight years between her and her new man will become an issue.

She added: “I suppose my insecurity with dating someone a lot younger would be that he’d get to a point where he thought I was too old for him or that I’d start to feel old because I was with someone so much younger.

Coleen Nolan has opened up about her new romance

“There are of course age-gap relationships that have proved a big success – take the late Barbara Windsor and her husband Scott, who were blissfully happy for many years.”

Coleen recently confessed that although she’s enjoying her new relationship, it’s already being tested as they are being kept apart by lockdown.

She doesn’t like video calls so they are keeping their romance alive on the phone.

The telly favourite told us: “Luckily, I did find someone I really like online – the challenge now is how on earth to keep the relationship going when we can’t meet up.

“I’ve got to admit, I’m not one for endless FaceTime calls – I’m not ready for him to see me in my trackie bottoms just yet and, believe it or not, I feel quite self-conscious on video calls.

“But we do talk on the phone every day and have been since the end of September.

“I’m enjoying the flirtation and having something nice to look forward to during the endless hours of lockdown, but it is frustrating not being able to move things on.

“I’d love any tips for virtual dates, so drop me a line if you have any good ideas.”

Coleen has been single since 2017 after splitting from husband number two, Ray Fensome, after 11 years of marriage.

She was previously married to I’m A Celebrity star Shane Richie, the father of her two sons.

“Once they evaluated me and did all of my blood work, all of a sudden, I’m getting antibiotics, steroids and a plasma antibody transfusion for COVID. It happened really fast,” the 43-year-old continued. “Then they moved me…up to another room, a more permanent room. Then I just remember sleeping and it was just surreal. Like, ‘What?’ I didn’t even realize why I was there until, like, three days later,” that’s how out of it Jon was with COVID-19.

Those are things that I want to build towards.”

What also devastated the pandemic in NYC: 1,000 closed chain stores and 50% of restaurants almost bankrupt | The State

In the wake of this new 2021 it is still a question of understanding the dimensions of the immense ‘crater’ that the COVID-19 pandemic leaves the economy of the Big Apple. Everything outlines that bankruptcy and business closing, unfortunately, it will continue to be present on the horizon for the next few months.

New York City icons such as chain stores on every corner, its diverse array of restaurants, and even the “hornet’s nest” of yellow cabs in the urban scene, are experiencing a real crash.

Some academic reports already describe what happened in 2020 with famous chains from fast food restaurants, smartphone sales, pharmacies and at least 200 kinds of retail business models.

He Center for an Urban Future published a study stating that the pandemic forced the permanent or temporary closure of more than 1,000 stores of this category in all five counties.

“The number of retailers in these chains decreased from a total of 7,948 in 2019 to 6,891 stores in 2020, a decrease of 13.3 percent ”, details the extensive report product of a data collection between November and December of the 2020 pandemic.

Overall, 2% of these store categories in New York City have reported that their measures are temporary and 11.3% have not. specified if the closures are permanent.

198 stores closed in Queens

Just an example. When last September the “cheap” clothing chain Century 21 announced the closure of its nine stores in New York City, after reporting its bankruptcy due to the effects of the coronavirus, at least 1,400 people were unemployed. One of them was Colombian Giselle Matos, 45 years old, who worked as a cashier in one of its huge warehouses.

“I had been working in that chain for 10 years and we cried a lot when they told us they couldn’t take it anymore. We top it all. It’s been three months and it doesn’t look easy to get another job. Rather one feels that every time you walk down a street there is a new business that they closed ”, shares Matos who lives in Forrest Hill in Queens.

And it was precisely in Queens, the second county after Manhattan, where more closures were confirmed. There a total of 198 stores of well-known chains or franchises closed their doors. This represents 11.2 percent of the total number of businesses of this type in that locality.

Some neighborhoods were hit hardest, according to the report.

Specifically, more than 25% of the chain stores in the ZIP Code 11102 belonging to Astoria and zip code 11413 of Springfield gardens they did not continue to operate commercially in 2020.

Other numbers show the economic meltdown: 28 percent of JFK airport stores also went out of business or put a hiatus before abysmal decrease in visitors to the Big Apple.

“Last year was marked by unprecedented economic volatility in most sectors in all counties of the city, the national retail market experienced an unprecedented contraction as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, “the authors of the‘ Center for Urban Future ’report highlighted.

Those most affected: minority youth

He Dominican José Miguel Feliz, 22 years old, worked as a maintenance assistant at a branch of the gym chain New York Sport Club, on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. When these establishments were allowed to reopen last summer, the young man expected to be called upon to rejoin. But the communication he received is that this headquarters, like 26 others, would not open “for now”.

“I helped my family. I had a dream to start studying at the university, but that plan will have to wait, ”said Feliz.

With an average unemployment rate of around 14.5% at the end of last year, other investigations report who are those who have suffered the most from the calamity of the business closure in general.

In a report published by The New York Times, Stephanie Aaronson, director of economic studies at ‘Brookings Institution’ concludes that the loss of jobs due to the pandemic has particularly affected young workers who are Black, Hispanic or without a college degree.

“They have even higher unemployment rates than younger workers in general. They are also more likely to have difficulties because their families they don’t have the resources to support themAaronson said.

Furthermore, as can be seen from an analysis of ‘The New School‘At the New York City Affairs Center, the 19 percent of adults under the age of 25 in the city they had lost their jobs compared to 14 percent of all workers.

While workers under the age of 25 made up only 10 percent of the city’s total workforce of 4.8 million before the pandemic, they had the 15 percent of jobs in service industries hardest hit, including restaurants, retail stores, entertainment and recreation.

The agony of restaurants

If an industry defines the life of the city of skyscrapers, it is bars and restaurants. After a long agony that began in the spring for this sector, where more than 60% of the workforce is of Hispanic origin, all the winds are directed strongly to consider that much of this industry will barely survive this year.

A new survey conducted by the New York State Restaurant Association, in conjunction with the National Restaurant Association, shows that these New York businesses suffered more in 2020 due to the economic crisis when compared to the industry across the country.

According to the query that struck the reality of 6,000 restaurant operators, including 238 in New York, during the last two weeks of November, 54 percent of the owners of the Big Apple said they are likely to close in the next six months, if they don’t have a federal aid package.

Compared to 37 percent nationwide, nearly 60 percent of New York carriers say they are considering shutting down until they wait for “better times,” compared to the 36 percent nationwide.

Overall, the National Restaurant Association estimates that one in six restaurants nationwide has already closed permanently due to the economic crisis amid the pandemic. Based on this estimate, that means that so far, 8,333 restaurants, including 4,500 establishments in New York have been permanently closed.

“However, the actual number of small neighborhood restaurant closings during may not be fully known for years,” said Eater New York, a restaurant trade publication.

The desperation of the taxi drivers

If before the pandemic, the traditional yellow taxis that are part of the city’s stamp faced the depreciation of the value of their permits (medallions) and the irruption of transport services such as Uber and Lyft, now COVID-19 has placed them in a “free fall” that keeps 80% of these entrepreneurs almost with the engines off.

With $ 54 in average daily income in the last quarter, these 21,000 workers at the wheel are doomed for bankruptcy, according to the latest data shared by the New York Taxi Workers Alliance (NYTWA).

Already on January 1, Bhairavi Desai, leader of this guild, he warned on his twitter account: “the struggle continues after so many months of pain.”

This union aspires to receive financial relief from the New York City Taxis and Limousine Commission in the coming months and the possibility of renegotiating its debts for the acquisition of the medallions. Otherwise at the end of this new year we would be at the head of the burial of this sector.

Laughing bear! Timo Werner almost injured with corner pennant alone | The State

Manchester City humiliated Chelsea by thrashing them 3-1 to leave with the three points of Stamford Bridge, but the humiliation was even their own when the forward Timo Werner almost injured himself with only corner pennant.

Timo Werner was in charge of taking a corner kick, just when the London team was looking for at least the discount in a complicated clash with the ‘Citizens’ who had no problem dominating the entire game, but made a tremendous bear.

When he took the corner he ended up hitting the corner kick flagpole and taking a weak shot that hit the feet of one of his closest teammates, such action resulted something that was already classified on social networks as an embarrassing or pathetic bear.

A single victory in six games has taken Chelsea to eighth place, out of any European competition; while City is already in the fight. With one game less, four points separate him from the leader, Liverpool.
