Coleen posted a heartfelt message for Denise

In 2021, the family announced that both Anne and Linda were being treated for cancer. While Anne is now in remission, Linda has sadly been informed her illness is incurable after the cancer spread to her liver.

Bernie Nolan, the women's sister, tragically died of cancer back in 2013. In February, the Nolans faced more sad news as Coleen paid tribute to her aunt Teresa, who died of skin cancer.

"She was a massive part of [our] family, so it's a massive loss. She's going to be very sadly missed in our family," she said, speaking on Loose Women.

Coleen, 57, is the youngest of the six sisters, who originally began performing together as The Nolan Sisters in 1974, when the multi-talented star was just nine years old.

The siblings went on to have several top twenty hits in the UK before Coleen left the group in the 1990s. They have since reunited on screen for TV shows The Nolans Go Cruising and At Home with the Nolans.
