Singer Bernie Nolan, who is battling terminal cancer, was too ill to attend the publication of her memoir, 'Now and Forever'.

The book tells the story of her career with the Nolan Sisters in the 1970s selling 30 million records worldwide, then becoming a star on stage in musicals such as 'Blood Brothers' and 'Chicago', and on the small screen where she won awards for her roles in 'Brookside' and 'The Bill'.

Two years ago Bernie was given the all-clear after a battle with breast cancer.

But last summer the cancer returned and spread to her brain, lungs, liver and bones. She was told it was incurable.

She declared she was going to "fight it all the way" and the book, which was launched yesterday, details what she has been through since then.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aries:

Wanderlust may be too powerful to resist. Planning a long holiday will be a pleasant diversion from work. You don't have to have fancy accommodation. You're willing to rough it for an adventure, but you do want to get good value for your money. Doing some research into the best places to stay and eat will pay off handsomely. Take along a friend who is free spirited and eager to explore unfamiliar vistas. The two of you will make great travelling companions.More
