Linda Nolan has revealed she no longer fears death, amid her cancer diagnosis.
She was later diagnosed with incurable secondary breast cancer which had spread to her hip in 2017, and three years later, revealed the disease had spread to her liver, with more tumours being discovered.
Linda has since been sharing updates, including saying she’s preparing ‘for the inevitable’, and just weeks ago sharing her devastation as she shaved her head after losing hair for the fourth time.
Despite the sad news, Linda has now admitted she isn’t’ scared of death, after her sister Bernie appeared in a dream to help her get her will together.
‘What happens when you die is a frightening thought,’ she said.

‘We were laughing hysterically like we used to and we were sorting my will.
‘It was “give that one this, give that one that” – when I woke up, I wasn’t frightened any more. Can you believe that’s how I feel?’
Bernie announced her breast cancer diagnosis in 2010, before sharing she was cancer=free after a mastectomy and chemotherapy.
In 2012, she revealed she was no longer taking cancer treatment drugs, but just months later her cancer returned. She died aged 52 in July 2013.

Speaking in an interview last year, Linda said she was a ‘complete mess’ following her most recent diagnosis.
‘I started the chemo again in September but the doctor said it hadn’t done what they hoped it would do,’ she told The Sun.
‘The tumours on my liver were enlarged and were growing, so they had to put me back on chemo again.
‘It was a shock. But I’ll do anything to stay alive.’
