Loose Women's Coleen Nolan breaks down in tears over Linda Nolan's cancer diagnosis

Coleen Nolan broke down in tears while talking about her sister's cancer diagnosis on Loose Women.

The ITV show panelist asked her co-stars to move on quickly as she became emotional while talking about Linda Nolan's recent health update. Earlier today, Linda told Susanna Reid and Richard Madeley that her cancer had spread to her brain in a heartbreaking interview on Good Morning Britain this morning.

Linda said: "I just want to tell you that sadly for me that my cancer has now spread to my brain, which I only found out on Monday. Obviously, it's very frightening because there isn't much help for brain cancer at the moment."

She continued: "Apart from radiotherapy, which I'm going to be having. There is a new drug that has been in use for a year for brain cancer.

"They're going to try me on that with some other treatment. I just wanted people to know that is the situation. I'm not giving up and I'm positive."

Coleen praised her sister for her bravery and positivity and the Loose Women panel discussed the health update. She said: "Her positivity rubs off on you. You hear her talk and she's positive about it so it makes you stronger."

Speaking about how her sister's diagnosis had impacted her emotionally, Coleen said: "It's so weird because even since Monday I haven't cried because I've felt really numb. I've just thought I'm so sick of it because it attacks my family all the time and I know a lot of people but selfishly you think of your family.

"And I haven't.... I'm scared of crying because I don't think I'll stop." Her eyes begin to fill up and her voice wobbled as she said: "I'm going to cry now so can you move on?"

She took a deep breath as her co-stars supported her and Ruth Langsford handed her a box of tissues which Coleen used to dab at her tear-soaked eyes.
