Sharon Osbourne: 'I didn't want to live under that cloud'

In an interview with Hello! magazine, Osbourne, 60, said:

As soon as I found out I had the breast cancer gene, I thought: 'The odds are not in my favour'.

I've had cancer before and I didn't want to live under that cloud: I decided to just take everything off, and had a double mastectomy.
