    Anne was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphona in the early 90s but beat it. I'm guessing either that or some other kind of cancer came back and this time she couldn't fight it.

    It's been confirmed that it was cancer. Reportedly it was kept secret with only her husband and close friends knowing.

    It's just been in the papers that she had breast cancer. She actually thought she was getting better and talked to the producers about going back to Corrie in the near future but all of a sudden she started to deteriorate and died in hospital.

    I watch it now and again but I prefer Eastenders to be honest.
