Linda Nolan has expressed her delight and relief at having her second Covid vaccination. 

Alongside a picture of herself smiling and wearing sunglasses, the singer declared: “I’ve had my second Covid vaccination, edging that bit closer to freedom!”

The 62-year-old has previously spoke about how getting her first Covid-19 vaccination had given her fresh hope for the future.

"There is light at the end of the tunnel now,” she told the Irish Independent in March. “I have had my first injection now so that's brilliant. But I'm lucky that I've got family around me at least," she said.

Linda and her sister Anne (70) have both been battling cancer and although Anne is now cancer free after responding well to treatment, Linda is currently battling the illness after discovering it had returned last year. They lost their sister Bernie (52) to the disease in 2013.

When the sisters both started cancer chemotherapy together at the same time at Blackpool Victoria hospital last June, Linda said they weren't the Chemical Brothers, “we were the Chemo Sisters”.

“Anne's chemotherapy was very long,” Linda recalled. “She was there sometimes for five hours because she was having the full blown, four different lots whereas mine was palliative.

“I would get there and have her smiling face there so that was lucky for us. I feel well at the moment. My cancer is treatable but not curable, so I'm taking chemotherapy tablets at home. They are a bit harsh but they're easier to tolerate than having them intravenously."

Linda has also spoken about how important it is to go to a GP if anybody notices changes in their body.

"There was no hesitation about me going for my treatment because the one thing that won't wait until the end of lockdown is cancer," she said. "If you find a lump or something doesn't feel right, go to your GP, get it checked. We found that our local hospital, Blackpool Victoria hospital, was amazing.

"It was safer than anywhere because they had to double up on everything."
