What happens on At Home With The Nolans?

Anne says: “Linda is getting her results today, so Coleen, Denise and myself have arranged to meet her and Maureen and her favourite cocktail bar to hear the results.”

After arriving, Linda breaks the bad news to them, saying: “Well I have to sit down and tell you that it’s not good news. The tumour’s in my liver, some of them have gone but some of them have got a bit bigger.”

Anne, in shock, says: “I’m just so upset because I thought it was going to be good news.”

And Linda, vowing to remain positive, says: “It’s good news in that they can still treat it. We might have a little cry, and then we’ll have a little laugh, because we always do that. But as long as we have a piña colada at the end of it, we’ll be fine!”

I’m living with cancer, that’s what I’m doing. It’s not going to beat me.

Similarly, Loose Women and Real Full Monty star Coleen is determined to stay positive.

Coleen says: “I think we have to continue to always try and find the positive. We do grasp opportunities now to spend more time together and to live life and enjoy it for however long we’ve got.”
