Julia told ITV: ‘This is completely unlike any other documentary or television series I have made before. I wasn’t expecting to make a programme about myself like this: my cancer diagnosis was a real shock and out of the blue.

‘If you need external support there are amazing charities out there like Maggies, Breast Cancer Now, Macmillan, Pink Ribbon Foundation…the list goes on. ‘The charitable infrastructure in the UK is incredible.’
