Nolans star thanks fans for cancer support

The Nolans star beat breast cancer in 2010, but she revealed at the weekend that the disease is back and has spread to her brain, lungs, liver and bones.

Now the 52-year-old has reached out to express her gratitude after receiving an outpouring of kind words from well wishers.

She said: "I'd like to thank everyone for their goodwill. I'm thrilled by the messages of support and it means such a lot to me.

"But I don't want any sympathy at all. If I catch anyone giving me a sympathetic look, I'll be tempted to knock them out!"

Nolan's latest diagnosis came in April, but she kept it secret and continued to work - even touring with the cast of musical Chicago.

However, The Nolans' planned tour in early 2013 has been postponed as Bernie continues to fight the illness.
