Linda Nolan has been singing since the age of four and found fame alongside her siblings in The Nolan Sisters.

The group's song 'In The Mood For Dancing' reached No 3 in the UK music charts, No 2 in Ireland and No 1 in Japan - which is rare for a Western act.

Linda is also an actress and has starred in the West End shows Blood Brothers and Prisoner Cell Block 'H': The Musical.

In 2006, Linda was diagnosed with breast cancer shortly after her now-late husband Brian was diagnosed with skin cancer. She had a partial mastectomy and 11 lymph nodes removed along with chemotherapy.

The Nolan Sisters haven't always got on, however they were brought together following sister Bernie Nolan's tragic death to breast cancer in July 2013.

Bernie recently said: "We're all fine now. We're back going to Bingo together.

"When Bernie was taken ill everything fell into perspective."
