Horrifyingly, she was then forced to deny she was dead.
Writing in The Mirror Linda said: “The moment I had to turn to Coleen’s son Jake’s girlfriend and ask her what my niece, Coleen’s daughter, is called.
“My memory has been lapsing for a while but that moment was as bad as it has got. I could actually have asked Ciara herself – that’s it, CIARA.
“She’s funny like her mum, and she’d have responded just like her, too.
“You can imagine the comments about my age… But I didn’t, because deep down it doesn’t feel right. As I said, I won’t panic.
“My balance is still better than it was, I’m not having headaches. I have some scans arranged and I’ll wait for them.”
The brave singer then added: “I’m not going to live in fear, because it’ll take over, and I have to concentrate on making the most of now.”
Back in April, we revealed how Linda had already started to plan her funeral.
Talking of her late husband Brian‘s funeral, she described it as “amazing”.
Linda additionally referred to her sibling’s passing and told the publication: “Bernie arranged hers [her funeral]. It’s easier for people left behind.
“I’ve gone into it a little bit. A Neil Sedaka song, Our Last Song Together. And I know the funeral people I’m going to use.”
Linda’s husband Brian also died from skin cancer in 2007.
Linda was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer in 2005 and given the all-clear the next year.
But in March 2017, she was diagnosed with secondary breast cancer which was identified after it spread to her hip, following a fall.
Doctors confirmed they could see no cure – and in May 2020 that it had also spread to her liver.
Previously she has heartbreakingly admitted she does not know how much time she has left.
