The 45-year-old television personality previously revealed she was diagnosed with the disease and had been waiting to see if it has spread to other parts of her body.

She said: "I’ve always said I am not scared of dying. But when the doctor said, ‘You have cancer’, straight away my thoughts turned to Jade [Goody] and that I don’t want to die.

"I know I need to fight. After what happened with Jade I was frightened to talk to anyone about my cancer at first.

Today I feel so much gratitude.

"She was my friend and what happened was so awful. There is part of me that thinks I would rather just be ill and not know about it - to just get on with life.

"But then I thought about the kids and I thought that is a selfish way to be. I’ve tried to commit suicide before but getting this diagnosis has made me realise I don’t want to die.

"I want to live and sort out my health. I know I have to fight, I know I have to get up and battle it."
