What happened with Linda and Anne Nolan on GMB?

But unfortunately, Anne was too poorly to be on the programme.

When she came on for her chat, Linda offered an update on her sister and why she couldn’t come on GMB.

She sends her love.

Presenter Kate Garraway said: “The Nolan family lost their beloved sister Bernie in 2013 and now, their family are having to deal with the cruel news that both Anne and Linda Nolan have also been diagnosed with the disease. Again, within days of each other.”

Her co-host Ben Shephard explained: “Both sisters are now going through chemotherapy treatments. Linda, who was diagnosed with liver cancer in March, joins us now live from Blackpool. Sadly, Anne’s too poorly to join us. How are you feeling this morning Linda?”

Linda told them: “I feel okay, actually. My chemo isn’t as toxic as Anne’s because it’s actually secondary breast cancer I’ve got. But Anne is a primary cancer, so she is having everything thrown at her to make her well again.

“So, she’s sorry she can’t be here but she sends her love.”
