Absolutely Fabulous actress Saunders beats breast cancer

Comedienne Jennifer Saunders has successfully battled breast cancer, according to reports.

The Absolutely Fabulous actress, 52, has been given the all clear after eight months of treatment, The Sun said.

Mother-of-three Saunders is said to have found a lump in her breast last October, being diagnosed with cancer within days.

She was apparently given the all-clear after her treatment finished in June, and is described as being in "very good spirits".

Saunders, who is best known for her work with comedy partner Dawn French, was pictured at Wimbledon last week wearing a wig and a bandanna.

She is married to former Young Ones actor and writer Adrian Edmondson.

They have three daughters, Ella, 24, Beatrice, 23, and Freya, who is 19.

Around 45,000 women a year are diagnosed with breast cancer every year in the UK. Eight in 10 are found in women aged 50 and over.
