Appearing on ITV's Good Morning Britain, the sister of Loose Women panellist Coleen Nolan spoke of her anguish of being unable to physically support Anne, while admitting she didn't tell her family of her diagnosis for three days.
Coleen Nolan has tried to remain positive after her sisters Linda and Anne revealed they both have cancer, a supportive statement shared to her Twitter account has revealed.
But now the sisters are going through a very different experience together, enduring chemotherapy together at Blackpool's Victoria Hospital, according to the Sun. The pair have since lost their hair to chemotherapy.
But showing positivity despite the tragic turn of events, Linda told Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard, "We're now the Chemo sisters".
"During the lockdown it's been a double nightmare", Linda explained on GMB.
"I love my daughters, my grandchildren, my friends, all my family".
"I couldn't tell anyone then because they were so obviously devastated about Anne".
This was just half an hour after her sister Maureen experienced known as her to produce the information that Anne's breast cancer experienced returned.
The Nolan sisters arrive at the Lyceum Ballroom Left to right; Linda, Coleen, Bernie, Maureen and Anne Nolan.
Linda now has an incurable form of liver cancer, having previously survived breast cancer in 2006, lymphoedema in her arm a year later and secondary cancer on her pelvis in 2017. "They say that helps you as much as what they're doing".
Meanwhile, Anne, a mum of two and a grandmother of three, said: "I don't want to die". It is a very scary diagnosis.
"I've known that my cancer isn't curable since 2017 but I'm getting great treatment and I'm going to be living with cancer and I propose to do that for an bad long time".
She added: "We are lucky I suppose in the fact that we can have it [treatment] together".
The famous sisters were diagnosed just after they finished filming The Nolans Go Cruising.
"It's really hard. I don't think we could have done it without our family being so close".
"I keep telling myself the chemo is terrible, but hopefully it's doing its job", Anne said. You feel a bit weird saying, 'I've got cancer... but I've no hair'.
"I look in the mirror now and I see Bernie, because I think we're so alike anyway and it just brings back all of her trauma and how sick she was".
