C omedienne Jennifer Saunders has fought a successful battle with breast cancer.

The Absolutely Fabulous star is understood to have found a breast lump around nine months ago and was given the all-clear last month.

Saunders, married to fellow comedian Adrian Edmondson and mother to three daughters, is thought to have discovered the lump in October.

It is said to have been caught early and Saunders has undergone chemotherapy and radiotherapy sessions.

The star, described as being in “very good spirits”, fought her cancer battle away from the limelight and has not spoken about it publicly.

The 52-year-old, who is well known for her work with comedy partner Dawn French, was pictured last week at Wimbledon covering her head with a wig and a bandana.
