Denise Nolan gets married! Nolans singer finally ties the knot with fiancé Tom Anderson after 30 years following his Parkinson’s diagnosis in emotional ceremony with her sisters by her side

Denise Nolan has tied the knot with her fiancé Tom Anderson after a three decade engagement and 47 years together.

The Nolans singer, 72, finally walked down the aisle with her longtime partner, 77, on Monday in Blackpool, surrounded by her sisters.

The couple first met in 1977, while Denise was singing in The Nolans and Tom was the drummer at the London Rooms in the West End, going on to play in her band when she went solo.

He soon popped the question to the star in the 90s, but the pair didn’t feel the need to set an actual date, until Tom’s diagnosed with Parkinson’s six years ago and they decided it was time to make things official.

Denise was joined by her sisters Linda, 65, Coleen, 59, Anne, 73, and Maureen, 70, for the big day, while the ceremony included a special tribute to late sister Bernie, who died aged 52 in 2013.

And during the reception, the sister reunited to perform together once more, complete with their original dance routines.

While sister Linda made a hugely generous gesture to the happy couple, after moving in with them a year ago amid her cancer battle.

She was first diagnosed with stage-three breast cancer in 2005 before getting the all-clear in 2006, but the disease sadly returned in 2017 and then spread to her liver and brain. 

After all of Denise’s support through her treatment, she decided to help pay for her and Tom’s nuptials to say thank you.

Opening up about the big day to OK!, she gushed: ‘It was such an emotional experience for all of us, it felt like a fairytale come true. 

With everything that’s happened in my own life, moments like these become even more precious. We’ve always been each other’s pillars of strength, but on the day, the joy and love in the air were palpable. 

Watching Denise walk down the aisle, knowing all the years of love, trials, and triumphs she and Tom have shared, brought tears to my eyes. It was a day filled with laughter, tears, and memories that I will cherish forever.’
