Singer Linda Nolan updated her fans on her health this week – and later returned to social media with another heartfelt message.

On Wednesday, the star, who is the older sister of Loose Women presenter Coleen Nolan, shared an image from her appearance on her sister's podcast, which is about grief.

The image showed a purple background with a quote from Linda about losing her husband Brian, who died of liver failure in 2007, the year after she was first diagnosed with cancer, which is treatable but incurable.
