She has been fighting secondary breast cancer since 2017, and it has since spread to her liver.

The star was initially diagnosed with breast cancer in 2016.

In a recent social media post, Linda said: “Not only have I lived to see another year in, I saw it in with my sisters by my side and I couldn’t be more thankful.

“There’s lots of great things planned for 2022 and I can’t wait to share them all with you. Here’s to an amazing year ahead!”

She was diagnosed at stage three – the worst stage before it reaches terminal status, stage four.

Thankfully, Anne is now cancer-free after having chemotherapy.

Their sister Bernie died from breast cancer in 2013.
