Linda Nolan has revealed that her doctors have told her that if she catches the coronavirus while battling cancer she will "die".
The 61-year-old singer is currently fighting cancer and undergoing chemotherapy.
Her 70-year-old sister Anne is also tragically going through cancer and treatment and has been given the same warning by doctors, Linda says.
Linda says they have been told they are high-risk and therefore told not to leave their homes in a bid to stop them from catching the deadly virus.
The pair were diagnosed with cancer just days apart from one another back in March – at the same time the UK went into lockdown.
During a chat with The Express, Linda said: "If I get the flu and then Covid I will die.
"That's what me and my sister Anne were told, we will die because we have nothing to fight it with, because chemotherapy depletes your immune system."
Linda went on to encourage her fans to get the free flu jab if they are entitled to it.
She says she has been entitled to it due to her cancer.

Linda added: "So it is vitally important that you get it [the jab] and the thing is it's so easy, it takes 10 minutes out of your day."
The star's older sister Denise, 68, who she has been living with during the pandemic, was also in the chat.
She told the publication how Linda has been telling people to put their masks on in shops.
Denise revealed her sister has said to people: "It's alright for you, but if you give Covid to me I will die".
It comes after the star said she is scared this Christmas may be her last because of her battle.
Speaking to Bella Magazine the star painfully said: "I lie in bed and I wonder how long I'll be here, if I'll see my great-nieces and nephews grow into adults, or if this Christmas is going to be my last."
The Nolans songstress is battling incurable secondary breast cancer and liver cancer.
