Bernie Nolan diagnosed with cancer

Bernie Nolan has revealed she’s battling breast cancer.

The singer and actress, 49, was diagnosed with the disease last week.

Bernie, a member of all-sister group The Nolans, now faces a mastectomy and chemotherapy.

‘I’m going to kick this cancer’s ass,’ she says.

Bernie says her daughter Erin, 10, is inspiring her to fight the illness.

‘The best thing about having a child is I have the extra strength because I want to see her grow up and I have to be strong for her,’ she tells the News Of The World.

Bernie’s sisters Anne and Linda Nolan have previously overcome breast cancer.
