As Andrea McLean asked how she was doing, Coleen replied: "It’s hard, isn’t it? It’s really hard. The news of Anne and Linda came after such an incredible time with The Nolans go Cruising and then two weeks later, this devastating news hit us.
"My sisters, they’re obviously devastated, but they’ve battled it. They’re nearly at the end of their chemo. It’s difficult for me to sit at home and cry for myself when I see them being so stoic and laughing.
"Obviously they have days where they are incredibly ill and Maureen and Denise give us the info on those days. It’s really hard because I can’t go and see them, they’re high risk.

"The rest of the family can look in through the window but my initial reaction was to jump in the car and go to Blackpool and wrap my arms around them and I can’t, it’s heartbreaking."
Coleen admitted that she's considering a mastectomy and described her breasts as "ticking time bombs".
The mum-of-three then began crying uncontrollably when Andrea asked how Linda and Anne were.
She replied through tears: "They’re great, they're unbelievably great. But also very scared, Anne is scared. Anne is suffering terribly with anxiety, something she has never had in her life.
"Linda is devastated about the hair loss. She thinks people think she’s being vain but it’s been hard for her. I can’t believe I’m crying."
