Olivia Newton-John has revealed that she is sadly battling with cancer for a third time.

The 69-year-old battled a second bout of cancer back in 2013 - a fight which she had decided to keep secret.

In an interview with Channel Seven the film icon explained why she had chosen not to reveal her illness at the time...

She told the show: 'I thought 'It's my life' and I just decided to keep it to myself."

In a bid to fight the illness, the 69-year-old has completely cut down on sugar, and has turned to herbal remedies to help her.

"In California, it's legal to grow a certain amount of plants for your own medicinal purposes... I'm very lucky that I live in a state where it's legal and that I have a husband that is a plant-medicine man," she told the show.

However despite her diagnosis, Olivia wants to remain positive about things, & refuses to feel sorry for herself.
