What is bowel cancer and how common is it?

Actress Julie Walters says she has undergone surgery to remove 30 cm of her colon and taken a course of chemotherapy after being diagnosed with stage three bowel cancer.

The 69-year-old actress - who was diagnosed with the disease 18 months ago - has now been given the all-clear after undergoing chemotherapy, but Julie initially thought doctors "must have made a mistake".

At the time of her diagnosis, Julie was suffering with stomach pain, heartburn and vomiting.

Revealing that she was feeling unwell during filming of The Secret Garden, she explained that she was referred to a gastric surgeon and given a CT scan which revealed concerning abnormalities.

Dame Julie told the BBC: "I was still thinking, "That's ridiculous, he must have made a mistake". I couldn't believe it", she said, as she added that she would "never forget" the face of her husband Grant Roffey when she told him the news.

Walters then spoke about how hard it was to tell her husband, Grant Roffey, the bad news.

Despite remaining upbeat, Dame Julie said she thought "Well, I may not come round from the anaesthetic" while awaiting surgery. Her doctor told her: "We can fix this".

Now, Walters said she is doing "really well", sharing that she "just had a scan and I know that [I'm] clear".

The star asserted that she isn't cutting out acting completely, however, she added, "I certainly don't think I can go back to [working] six days a week, five in the morning till seven o'clock at night". "I'm not saying I'll never act again".

Her recovery meant she had to be cut from some scenes in The Secret Garden, where she stars alongside Colin Firth. "And I thought, 'oh Grant!' So then I anxious about him".

The NHS's national clinical director for cancer, Professor Peter Johnson, said: "I would like to thank Dame Julie for sharing her story because it's so important for people to realise that, if caught early enough, bowel cancer can be cured, so going to your GP and getting checked as soon as you have symptoms is crucial". "I was due to do two big series... and there were two films". And I just didn't have to do any of it.

"I came out and Grant was waiting in the vehicle because he'd taken me".
