Linda Nolan has been told by doctors that her incurable breast cancer is under control, and hasn't spread to other parts of her body
Linda Nolan's cancer is under control.
The 58-year-old singer and actress was diagnosed with incurable secondary breast cancer after doctors found a cyst on her pelvis earlier this year, and has now received the happy news that the disease hasn't spread to other parts of her body, so she can now focus on "looking after [herself]."
In a clip shown on 'Loose Women' on Monday (18.09.17), doctors told the star her cancer was under control, and she said she was "relieved" she can now look forward to spending more time with her family.
She said in the clip: "I'm relieved. I'm so happy I've got good news to tell my family and my friends. I can plan, I can start thinking about going away again, not worrying about any pains I get, that's natural, I've got painkillers. And every three months they're going to see me to have a scan, and I've just got to be good to myself and look after myself. And look forward with a positive sign now. I can look at the little nieces and nephews now and not get upset, because there's every possibility I am going to see them growing up, it's brilliant."
And Linda has said she refuses to be defeated by the incurable illness, and says she's a "tough cookie" who is going to "fight" the disease with everything she has.
She added: "Final message to cancer? You're dealing with a tough cookie here, so you know, be careful because I'm going to fight you all the way."
Later in the show, Linda revealed she was looking forward to continuing to work now that she doesn't have to worry about her cancer, and is planning on heading out on tour in the near future.
Meanwhile, the blonde - who previously battled cancer in 2006, a year before her husband Brian Hudson died in 2007 - previously revealed she is "terrified" of dying.
She said: "I think it's at night it hits you mostly, really, for me. My husband isn't here. So those times in the night I wake up, the first time around, he'd put his arms around me and say, 'It's going to be OK' and you'd think, it will be OK because he's here.
"I do have great support but I still wake up in the night and he's not there and it's a double blow. I do miss that one person that you can be 100 per cent raw with, if you like ... his time I'm scared of dying."
