Jennifer Saunders winning breast cancer battle

Thursday July 8, 2010

Ab Fab star Jennifer Saunders was given the good news last month - she’s winning her battle to beat breast cancer.

The 52-year-old discovered a lump in October last year and after having it removed underwent extensive chemotherapy treatment.

The comedienne hasn't spoken publicly about her ordeal preferring to keep it among close friends and family.

According to a friend, Jennifer was quite ill during her treatment but is recovering well and those close to her have been by her side throughout.

After recently appearing at Wimbledon wearing a blonde wig and head band (pictured), Jennifer showed off her new short hairstyle as she attended Tracey Emin's birthday party in the south of France.

She is said to be in very good spirits after having been given the all-clear by doctors.
