Jennifer Saunders - Saunders Ready For Tv Return After Cancer Battle

Beloved British funnywoman JENNIFER SAUNDERS is heading back to TV for the first time since her cancer fight.
The Absolutely Fabulous star was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009, but remained silent about her struggle until she was given the all-clear by doctors last June (10).
Saunders has avoided the spotlight during her battle, only working on a Christmas radio show with comedy partner Dawn French while she recovered.
But now the star is returning to the small screen in Britain for a nostalgia show called What's So Funny About the... 90s?
A source tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "Jennifer is one of this country's most successful female comics, whether it's alongside Dawn French or in her hit sitcom Ab Fab.
"It's a great thrill to get her back on the telly and everyone is delighted she's feeling well enough."
