Countryfile star Julia Bradbury is set to undergo a mastectomy imminently after revealing her breast cancer diagnosis last month. The 51-year-old will have her left breast along with a six centimetre tumour removed.

Surgeons will also take tissue from her lymph nodes to determine whether the disease has spread or not.

Taking to her Instagram page today, Julia shared a video of herself and one of daughters holding hands as they made their way up the stairs.

The presenter told fans she will be self-isolating with her children at home before her operation.

In the video, she said: “This is my little shadow all day today, she hasn’t left my side.”

In view of her 113,000 followers, she wrote: “These are the moments keeping me strong right now. Grateful for my little humans.

“It’s going to be tough self isolating before my op, so stocking up on the cuddles. #love #family.”

Many of the Countryfile star’s fans flocked to her post to comment.

Lizzie Cundy commented: “Sending loads of love and strength.”

Fisonr2020 added: “Thinking of you as will thousands of others.”

Dreem distillery wrote: “Stay strong. Those gorgeous cuddles will get you through it.”

“Good luck Julia, I’ll be thinking of you,” Domino 34 penned.

The presenter has three kids; Zephyr, 10 and twins Xanthe and Zena, both six.

Recalling her diagnosis last month, the outdoors lover said “there is no preparing you for those words”.

She added to the Mail Online: “The cruel thing about human beings is that we are the only creatures on the planet who know we are going to die.

“We all live in hope of a peaceful end in our beds, having had children and grandchildren, or having fulfilled whatever mission in life we choose.

“But the word cancer is so ugly it makes you think of the most unimaginably horrible death. That’s the reality of it.”

Julia went on to say that her main focus was fighting the disease and continuing to live her life.

“I still need to be a mum to my kids, a partner and a working woman,” she penned. “I’m still Julia.”

“My plan is to come through it and out the other side and I hope to be able to do that bravely enough so that women who are scared to get tested, to get a diagnosis, go ahead.

“I want to be able to give them a wave and say, ‘Look, it’s horrible, but you can do it too’.”
