Cutting cancer risk was "no brainer" says singer

The singer Michelle Heaton says having both breasts removed, to cut cancer risk, was a "no brainer". She's spoken to Granada Reports as she tours the country with a fitness event, raising money for breast cancer research.

Michelle made the decision to have a double mastectomy, after testing positive for a gene that pushed her chances of developing the disease beyond 80 per cent. Since then, she's had reconstructive surgery.
