Linda Nolan shares heartfelt tribute following ‘devastating’ death



Linda Nolan took to Twitter at the weekend to express her sorrow after the death of singer Vince Hill on Saturday. 

The singer wrote a heartfelt tribute on the social media site, which read: “Absolutely devastating news for all of us.

“Vince was a huge supporter of us on his TV show during the 70s and remained a good friend of the family. I even did one of my first solo pantos with him in 1985. Sending love and condolences to his wonderful family [red heart emoji].”

It read: “Sadly we have to share news none of us want to hear. We’re very sorry to have to tell you Vince has left us. He passed peacefully at home. Vince created a musical legacy… His tunes will remain forever in our hearts. Here’s to you V… you [expletive] legend xxx #VinceHill #Legend”.

The late star enjoyed a long career but was perhaps best known for recording the Rodgers and Hammerstein song Edelweiss from The Sound of Music back in 1967. 

Earlier this month, Linda and her sister, Loose Women star Coleen, paid tribute to their sister, Bernie, who died ten years ago.

“I think people wake up and feel guilty if they’re not sobbing under the duvet or just being generally depressed and I think grief is a really personal thing. I do get up and I do go to work and I do still laugh, because I think about Bernie every day and I also think about if she was still here and I didn’t get up she would beat my [expletive] and say, ‘Get out of bed,” because that’s what she was like.”

“Sadly, although it’s hard, sometimes life goes on, because it has to, and all we are left with are wonderful memories of people that we’ve lost. And we get sad because we loved them so much.
