GMB: Coleen Nolan gives an update on sister's cancer battle
Linda Nolan has revealed a plaque with her name on has given her a sense of comfort following her seventh cycle of chemotherapy.
The former singer, who was part of The Nolans, was recently pictured outside of Cliffs Hotel in Blackpool, where the family were discovered in 1973.
Linda, who revealed earlier this year that cancer had spread to her brain, spoke of the “poignancy” of having a plaque forever cemented on where the girl group found their feet.
“Our plaque has gone up outside Blackpool’s finest Cliffs Hotel, where the Singing Nolans, us lot and our mum and dad, used to perform,” Linda told The Mirror.
“The poignancy of having a lasting, solid something in my name wasn’t lost on me when a few hours later I went for my seventh cycle of chemo.”

Remaining in good spirits, Linda joked that she should also have a plaque at the hospital, adding: “I should probably have a blue plaque at the hospital, too. ‘Linda was here’ next to every chair; call me Goldilocks with shorter hair. I might just suggest it.”
Linda revealed she had liver cancer in 2020, having been previously treated for breast cancer in 2006 and secondary cancer on her pelvis in 2017.
In March, she shared her heartbreak over her worsening illness.
She recalled: “I lay on the couch with Denise the other day to watch a movie and said, ‘I wish I wasn’t dying’.

“The sudden thought swept over me of losing all this. I couldn’t help saying it. She said, ‘We will all have to die though’, and quietly, we moved on.”
Linda is not the only Nolan sister to suffer from cancer, as her sister Coleen recently opened up about her own skin cancer scare on Loose Women.
Tragically, Bernie died of breast cancer in 2013 at the age of 52.
Her sister, Anne was also diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time in 2020, just days apart from Linda’s diagnosis, but has since been declared cancer-free.
With the family history of the disease, Nolan said it had been “really scary” for her other sisters, including Denise, Maureen and Coleen.
The girl group – referred to as Ireland’s “First Family of Music” – had a string of hits including I’m In The Mood For Dancing and Don’t Make Waves.
In 2009, four of the sisters – Linda, Bernie, Coleen and Maureen – came together for a tour around the UK and Ireland.
They also released an album called I’m In The Mood Again.
