Sharon Osbourne has already frighted off cancer so when she found out that she has a faulty gene she was taking no chances.
The former X Factor judges has had a double mastectomy to remove both her breasts.
Sharon said that the risk of having the cancer again was not worth taking the risk as she said:
‘As soon as I found out I had the breast cancer gene, I thought: “The odds are not in my favour.”
‘I’ve had cancer before and I didn’t want to live under that cloud: I decided to just take everything off, and had a double mastectomy.’
Osbourne said genetic tests showed she had inherited a gene fault which increased the risk of breast cancer.
Sharon carried on in saying:
‘For me, it wasn’t a big decision, it was a no-brainer. I didn’t want to live the rest of my life with that shadow hanging over me.
‘I want to be around for a long time and be a grandmother to Pearl. I didn’t even think of my breasts in a nostalgic way, I just wanted to be able to live my life without that fear all the time.’
The operation helped her slim from a 16 stone size 22 to an 8 stone size 10 but she had further surgery to improve her look.
