The Brit Award-winner said all three of her daughters made the decision after being told they have a 50 per cent chance of getting breast cancer.

Craven, named best newcomer in 1991 and famous for her single Promise Me, was treated for the disease in 2005.

She said: “They said to me that once they’ve had babies and breastfed them, they will undergo double mastectomies.

“My girls are very brave and sensible. It will be their choice and I won’t try to influence them but they have been inspired by Angelina Jolie’s decision.”
