Linda Nolan confessed that she was terrified of dying while waiting for the results of her last CT scan to see if her cancer had spread.

The singer, 62, opened up about her battle with cancer with Ok! magazine as she revealed that she has another scan coming up.

The star was first diagnosed with stage three cancer in 2005 after finding a lump in her breast, but was given the green light a year later.

However, 10 years later, she discovered that the cancer had spread to her hip, before it was also found in her liver in May 2020.

Offering an update on her treatment, she said, “I am going to have a CT scan and after that I will get the results from my oncologist.

“Each time, I worry if it spreads again. I’m afraid of dying. There is so much to experience. You realize that when you’ve been through all I’ve got. Every day is a gift.

Linda revealed that she had to take four tables of chemotherapy in the morning and then four more before bed.

The media personality’s late husband, Brian Hudson, died of skin cancer in 2007 and she said she still believed he would “sort things out” if he was here.

Linda said: “When I had cancer in 2006, I would wake up at night feeling bad and he would rub my back, giving me what I needed. ”

In a recent interview on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories, Linda’s sister Coleen was torn apart as Piers showed her a clip where Linda admits she is afraid of dying.

Coleen said, “She’s always strong and always positive. It’s the first time I’ve heard her say that, that she’s afraid of dying and doesn’t want to die.

Coleen went on to explain how Linda had scans every three months and the last time she was there doctors told her her cancer had spread from her hip to her liver.

Nolan’s sister Bernie underwent chemotherapy and mastectomy and announced in February 2012 that she was cancer free.

However, months later, she shared the heartbreaking news that her cancer had spread to her brain, lungs, liver and bones. She died in July 2013.

Siblings Linda and Anne started chemotherapy at Victoria Hospital in Blackpool last July.

Coleen said: 'She's still strong and always positive.  It's the first time I've heard her say that, that she's afraid to die and she doesn't want to die '

Coleen said, “She’s always strong and always positive. It’s the first time I’ve heard her say that, that she’s afraid to die and she doesn’t want to die ‘

They received news of their shock diagnoses days apart, shortly after the sisters returned from filming a series of The Nolans Go Cruising in March.

After the sisters received their heartbreaking diagnoses, Maureen moved in with Anne and Linda moved into her sister Denise’s house in Blackpool.

Anne’s diagnosis came 20 years after she was first diagnosed with the disease in 2000.

In December, the singer said her cancer had “disappeared” after undergoing chemotherapy.

She said: “My cancer is pretty much gone. I’m still in treatment but he’s more or less gone, yeah. It’s incredible.’

Sister Linda, who appeared on the remote show from her home in Blackpool, revealed that she was also optimistic about the future after successfully completing treatment in September.

She said: It’s not curable, so maybe I’ll take medicine for the rest of my life, but as long as it works it’s fine.

“It’s hard not to be positive with this batch because they’re all full of it so it’s great, we had such a great time spending time together. “
