When TV star Julia Bradbury walked the red carpet at the National Television Awards earlier this month, she chose a silver off-the-shoulder jumpsuit cut dramatically across her chest. It was a heartbreaking, valedictory act - 'a kind of goodbye to the body I've been living in all these years'.
For the mother of three and primetime presenter of Countryfile, Watchdog and Britain's Best Walks, today reveals that she has breast cancer and will face a mastectomy next month.
'It changes your world forever in an instant,' says Julia, 51. 'There is no preparing you for those words. You hear 'cancer' and your brain starts to explode.
'The cruel thing about human beings is that we are the only creatures on the planet who know we are going to die. We all live in hope of a peaceful end in our beds, having had children and grandchildren, or having fulfilled whatever mission in life we choose. But the word cancer is so ugly it makes you think of the most unimaginably horrible death. That's the reality of it.
