Linda Nolan has shared a throwback picture of herself standing next to her Madame Tussauds waxwork, with a tongue-in-cheek dig aimed at those who designed the torso.

The singer and actress, who is currently undergoing treatment for cancer, shared the picture with her 15,400 followers on Twitter. The picture, which was taken while the waxwork was being made, shows her standing next to the bust with a questioning look on her face.

Captioning the picture, Blackpool resident Linda wrote: “Still can’t believe my body used to look like this… I still reckon Madame Tussauds made the boobs a bit on the small side though [wink emoji, laughing emoji].”

Last year Linda also spoke about the historic waxwork, saying: “As you can see, my Madame Tussauds waxwork took some inspiration from Dolly Parton! [wink emoji, laugh emoji, heart emoji].”

The waxwork shows Linda in a glamorous purple dress, vibrant red and blonde hair and an eerily similarity to legendary Dolly.

On Linda’s latest throwback to the waxwork, one fan said: “Love this.”

Another added: “You still look lovely, Linda.”

Recently Linda explained on Twitter that she was trying out a brand new lymphedema treatment, which has she appeared to reveal had gone well. Linda, who shot to fame alongside her siblings in singing group The Nolans, was diagnosed with breast cancer 17 years ago after finding a ‘small courgette sized’ lump in 2006.

Lymphedema is when one or both arms or legs swell up. And it can be caused by removal of or damage to the lymph nodes as part of cancer treatment. In Linda’s case, her lymph nodes were removed during a mastectomy and they were infected – which then developed into lymphedema.
