The post was accompanied by a series of throwback snaps of Teresa and the famous siblings, which was then retweeted by Loose Women panellist Coleen and her sisters Anne, Linda, Maureen and Denise.

Fans of the former pop stars were quick to offer their condolences, with one writing: "So sorry to hear that she must been a wonderful woman she looked so nice sending love hugs to you x." Another remarked: "I am so sorry to hear this sad news. My thoughts and prayers are with each of you. Sending much love and strength to you all at this time."

Coleen previously opened up about her fears of getting cancer as she admitted she is in the "incredibly high" risk category for breast cancer. Her sisters Linda and Anne are battling the disease.

The official Twitter account for the Nolans sisters released this statement

Speaking on Piers Morgan's Life Stories in March 2021, Coleen said: "I'm seriously looking into elective mastectomy. I've spoken to a specialist so far to see.

"I've said, 'Look what are my chances of this' and he said, 'Incredibly high' and although we don't carry the gene – the known gene BRCA1 and BRCA2 – he said it will be gene-related somewhere, it will just be a gene we haven't found."

However, in May, Coleen confirmed she had decided against the operation but will be monitoring any changes in her body closely.

Coleen's sisters Linda, 62, and Anne, 71, shocked fans in 2020 when they revealed they were both diagnosed with cancer - days apart from one another. Linda is suffering from incurable liver cancer, while Anne is battling breast cancer.

The Nolan Sisters singers tragically lost their sibling Bernie Nolan to breast cancer in 2013.
