Coleen Nolan has revealed that the reason she embarked on her first solo tour was due to a heartbreaking request from her sister Linda, who has cancer.

Speaking on Monday (February 12) Loose Womenthe singer told the panel that she agreed to the shows after a conversation with her brother.

Linda, 64, was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006 and announced she would have to stop performing in March 2023 as the cancer had spread to her brain.

“I kept saying, 'Maybe next year, maybe next year,' and Linda actually turned around and said, 'Do it now because next year it might not happen,'” Coleen said of her decision to tour.
