A source told The Mirror: ‘Linda has been prone to falls, but it’s a common side-effect of the chemotherapy she was on.

‘She had a series of falls a couple of weeks ago, just after her birthday. The family are extremely worried now and are rallying round to support and care for her. 

‘Linda doesn’t feel safe in her home alone now. Everyone’s hoping for the best, but preparing for the worst.’

MailOnline has contacted Linda’s representative for comment.  

Last month, Linda celebrated her 64th birthday with a boozy family dinner and a pink birthday cake.

She has not let her health woes take away from a brilliant birthday party as she enjoyed some quality time with family. 

Writing to her 253,000 followers on Instagram, Linda penned: ‘Will they still need me, will they still feed me, when I’m 64? Well I had one cake for me and another for me!

In another clip posted to the social media platform, she was filmed blowing out the candles while surrounded by family members in a restaurant. 

It comes after Linda shared a new health update as she tried out a brand new treatment for her cancer diagnosis. 

TV personality Linda later had a fall on her hip which is when doctors discovered a form of incurable secondary breast cancer on her pelvis.

In 2020 she was diagnosed with the terrible disease for the third time, and has since received ongoing treatment which has seen her lose her hair and eyebrows, and has even caused her toenails to turn to ‘chalk’. 

Since then, the star has been open with her fans about her journey to ‘do anything to stay alive’. 

Writing to her followers on Tuesday, Linda posted on Twitter: ‘Had another great day today, trying out a brand new lymphedema treatment.

‘I’m astonished by the results and a little bit emotional. Can’t wait to show you the full before and afters in a few weeks time ❤️❤️❤️’

In 2021, Linda started treatment again but was left devastated when she learned it had not had the affect she’d hoped for.

She explained to The Sun: ‘I started the chemo again in September but the doctor said it hadn’t done what they hoped it would do. The tumours on my liver were enlarged and were growing, so they had to put me back on chemo again.

‘It was a shock. But I’ll do anything to stay alive. We agreed on a 12-week course, once a week every Friday.’

She said she spent two days in bed crying after being told the difficult news, questioning if she would be with her family for much longer.

‘I was thinking, “Will I see my great-nieces and nephews? Will I see them grow up and get married?” But then I thought, “I don’t want to let cancer win.”‘

Linda rose to fame with her family pop group The Nolans in the 70s, performing alongside her sisters Anne, 71, Denise, 69, Maureen, 67, and Coleen, 57.

Her last sister Bernie was also a member but she died of breast cancer in 2013 aged 52.

Anne was previously diagnosed with breast cancer but is now in remission. 

She went on to explain how she doesn’t say certain things about her illness to her family as she doesn’t want to upset them but finds comfort in humour, although she admits sometimes it is a little dark.

Linda has a WhatsApp group so she can update her family on any progress or test results and often jokes over the messenger service that she hopes the next family event they go to is not her funeral.

She says she has asked her doctors not to tell her how long they think she has left as she just wants to ‘make memories’ and she asked for a break from treatment, rescheduling her December chemotherapy so she could enjoy Christmas. 

The star concluded: ‘Three of my nephews are getting married and Denise has her 70th coming up. My godson Danny, who is Maureen’s son, is getting married in Italy and that is my goal — to make sure I am there in August.

‘I am going to be there for all of those things. They are milestones. I am determined.’
