Lynda Bellingham - Lynda Bellingham: 'Cancer Treatment Is Going Well'

Actress Lynda Bellingham is more determined than ever to beat cancer as her chemotherapy sessions are "going swimmingly" and she has even stepped up her charity work.

The 65 year old Canadian/British star was diagnosed with a form of the disease last year (13) and has put her acting career on hold while she fights the condition.

Bellingham has now revealed she is still undergoing treatment, but she insists the therapy is going well and she feels healthy enough to take on more work for good causes during her career break.

She tells the Bbc, "I'm still at it all, getting out there and giving it some welly (sic)... It's been well documented I'm dealing with cancer and having chemotherapy so unfortunately my acting career is on hold - in the sense that I need to pay attention to the chemotherapy really, but hopefully eventually one will get back into it... I've got lots to be doing, lots of charity work. I only mention the cancer because you have to get into a routine with that and work your life around that - once you've factored it in then you work around it."

Bellingham was presented with a Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (Obe) medal from Charles, Prince of Wales during a ceremony at Buckingham Palace in London on Friday (14Mar14).
