Celebrity Big Brother 2014 Linda Nolan

Up next to face the crowd and say goodbye to the outside world for a few weeks is one of the Nolan sisters, Linda Nolan.

Linda is best known as a member of 70/80s group, The Nolans which consisted of Linda, Bernie and Coleen… along with a whole host of other Nolan’s throughout the years.

Linda Nolan understandably had a hard 2013 as she lost her sister, Bernie Nolan to cancer. Linda also suffered from the disease in 2006, but managed to recover.

Linda Nolan admitted in her VT that she is “just really fabulous” but she is “A little more confrontational than Coleen”.
“I don’t like people that think they’re celebrities because they’ve taken their clothes off or because they have slept with another famous person,” she added.

“I had Jim Davidson thrown out of a club once so God help me if Jim Davidson is in there now” – well Linda, I have something to tell you…

Speaking to Emma, Linda said: “Well, I don’t know. I’d be thrilled to win, anybody would and if I can go as far as Coleen, that’d be great and it’d really p*ss her off”.

However, we do know that Linda isn’t necessarily entering the house in hope that the Nolan Sisters will ever make it big again as she revealed back in November 2013 that they’ve given up on singing and the sister’s play Bingo on a Sunday evening instead. Exciting, right?

The housemates are entering the house in pairs this year and Linda’s other half is… Jim Davidson – oh my! FIREWORKS!

We have seen another Nolan sister take to the house over recent years with Coleen Nolan coming second place back in 2012, but the question is… will Linda be able to do as well as Coleen did?
