News of Coleen's aunt's passing comes after the star recently spoke to OK! on her own sister's cancer battle.

The Loose Women panellist shared how 62 year old Linda's results have been "very positive" despite her cancer being incurable.

"My sisters are doing really well. Linda obviously still has her ongoing battle with cancer," she told OK!. "But so far, all of the scans and all of the results are very very positive."

Coleen added: "And although they can't cure it, she's still responding to treatment really well. And Linda is just a warrior.

"I mean, you would never know. She's never looked better and she's out more than I am, partying, she's loving life, and it's really lovely to see."

Coleen added: "But there will always be a little bit of a black cloud over us."
