Singer Linda Nolan was previously diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006 and had been all clear for six years but earlier in March she discovered that the disease had returned following a fall she’d had at home.

Speaking to The Mirror, the star revealed that her skin is now ‘burned and raw’ due to the gruelling course of radiotherapy that she’s had and that she can barely walk.

She explained: “I’m just glad it’s keeping me alive.

“My skin is burned and raw from the radiotherapy. It’s crazy that something I know should be helping is causing such pain.”

Linda, who now struggles to walk, has moved in with her sister Denise so that she has someone to help her at all times.

She continued: “It is very daunting. I am absolutely devastated…I’m devastated because I feel so bad for my family having to go through it again. They have been amazing.

“I couldn’t do it without their support. When Bernie and Anne were diagnosed, we were there for them too. I can’t imagine going through this on your own.”
