Julia Bradbury has been labelled a “superwoman” as she gave an update on her battle with breast cancer.
The 51-year-old confirmed that she had been diagnosed with the disease last month on social media.
Since breaking the tragic news, the former Countryfile star has undergone a mastectomy.
Yesterday she took to Twitter to share an emotional update with her 141,000 followers after coming out of surgery the day before.
Julia shared an illustration created by The Yorkshire Post cartoonist Graeme Bandeira, which portrayed her as Superwoman.
The drawing showed a cartoon version of Julia flying over the Yorkshire hills and the Ribblehead viaduct.
The TV star penned: “This made me laugh & cry. @GraemeBandeira @yorkshirepost for your [love] & support.
“I don't feel like Superwoman but I'm 'happy' that some positives can emerge from my breast cancer.
“Pls check yourselves & learn as much as you can about your own body.”
She concluded the message with the hashtag “#BreastCancerAwarenessMonth”.
Julia’s legion of fans flooded her replies with messages of support.
