In a true act of courage and resilience, 49-year-old Bernie Nolan proved it is possible to stay glamorous while combating cancer, at this year's TV Choice Awards.
The singer with Eighties pop group The Nolans decided to face her illness head-on and reveal her hairless head at the awards on Monday evening.
Looking every inch the star in a black sequined dress, the singer and actress of shows such as The Bill and Brookside explained her decision: "I've spent the past few weeks saying I'm happy with no hair, so I felt it was important to come here and show I meant it."
Bernie is undergoing chemotherapy to battle against a particularly aggressive form of breast cancer.
