Bernie Nolan diagnosed with breast cancer

Monday April 26, 2010

Singer and actress Bernie Nolan has revealed she has breast cancer.

The 49-year-old, part of the all-sister group The Nolans, was diagnosed last week and told she faces a mastectomy and chemotherapy.

She is the third Nolan sister to have been diagnosed with breast cancer after siblings Anne and Linda Nolan both beat the illness.

"I'm going to kick this cancer's ass," says Bernie, who played Sgt Sheelagh Murphy in The Bill.
