Loose Women panelists Janet Street-Porter and Coleen Nolan opened up on their sex lives on Tuesday as they discussed their experiences of embarking on relationships after divorce.
The admissions came about as the panel discussed Rupert Murdoch, 92, announcing his engagement to Ann Lesley as he plans to marry a fifth time after divorcing Jerry Hall six months ago.
Janet said: "There's an interesting side to Rupert Murdoch that not many people are aware of which is he doesn't really believe in sex outside marriage...unlike me.
"So I think one of the reasons he's got married all these times is because he's what is called now a serial monogamist."
"He moves from one [wife] to another and the wives seemed to be doing okay out of it, they're not going around badmouthing him," Janet continued. "His religion, and his new bride is also a christian, has got a lot to do with it."
Coleen, who has been divorced twice after calling time on her marriage to Shane Richie in 1999 and Ray Fensome in 2018, pointed out that as a christian she would have thought the media tycoon would have tried to avoid divorce.
Janet hit back and said: "You're a catholic and you've been divorced," with Coleen replying: "Yes but I believe in sex before marriage."
Host Ruth Langsford asked Coleen is she would ever consider marrying again if she fell in love.
Coleen replied: "I loved being married... [but] getting divorced is so painful."
The Loose Women panelist and singer told her co-stars that as much as she loved being married she wouldn't be able to face the possibility of another divorce.
"I couldn't do it again," she quipped as she revealed she went into both her marriages believing neither of them would come to an end.
"I'm open to meeting someone, maybe even live with someone but I don't want to get married," she concluded.
However, Coleen went on to joke that she "looks up wedding dresses" and may end up like Charles Dickens' character Miss Havisham in Great Expectations by wearing a wedding gown despite having no plans to tie the knot.
Loose Women airs on ITV on weekdays at 12.30pm.
