The 59-year-old head judge on Strictly Come Dancing as revealed she is considering removing her breast implants.
She said this after she had a cancer scare as well as after finding out that the disease had been in her family history, when she shot an episode of Who Do You Think You Are? last year.
The two eventualities has led Shirley to consider taking all precautions she can to stop cancer ever affecting her life.
She told the weekend publication:
‘I’ve had a breast augmentation. It makes me step back and think when you go for these mammograms: “Can you see at the back? Is it clear what you can see?”
‘It’s making me sit back and think: “Shall I remove them? Would it be a good safety precaution for me?”‘
She also recently nursed her mother, 82, back to health following a colon cancer diagnosis, for which she underwent treatment.
Shirley is hosting a Macmillan Cancer Coffee Morning later this month, to raise money for the charity.
