Linda Nolan has confirmed that doctors have told her that brain tumours have shrunk.
Nolan, 64, has been receiving treatment and in March revealed that the cancer had spread to her brain, impacting her balance and leaving her in need of a wheelchair.
Speaking to ITV’s Good Morning Britain, Nolan expressed her relief and admitted that she didn’t think she’d “see Christmas”.
“It’s amazing… When we went in, I knew straight away that it was good news by the look on my consultant’s face. He said that the scans were good – the MRI and the CT scan – and that there is shrinkage with the tumours. I wanted to put my arms around him and kiss him but I thought they might throw me out,” Nolan said.
She added that the news was an “early Christmas present”, adding: “I didn’t think I’d make Christmas. I was hoping to make the birth of my nephew, who was born at the end of July, and then I was thinking, ‘How many more milestones will I make?’

Linda Nolan on enjoying the simple pleasures
“And at the moment, I feel good. I’ve got a little bit of pain but I was walking about yesterday; we went to the beautiful garden centre and I was having a walk around to keep moving. They said, ‘Don’t sit down all the time or nothing will work’, and I just looked and thought, ‘How lucky I am.’
“After nine months and getting the worst possible news, having a great time with my sisters and now it’s all excitement for Christmas.” Discussing the joy she gets from spending time with her sisters – Loose Women star Coleen, Maureen, and Anne – Nolan said: “I wake up and think, ‘Oh, another day to make memories’.
“I don’t wake up thinking, ‘It’s another day closer’, and that helps me. Sometimes I have to drag myself out of bed because lying there… just makes it worse… dip down into a depression.”
