Bradbury, also known for her work on Watchdog and Planet Earth Live, said she will need to wear a specially designed bra for the next six weeks to protect her upper body after the operation.

She cited NHS figures showing an increase in mastectomies over the past decade as she sent a message of support to others with the disease.

She said, “To all the warrior women (and men) out there, I send my love. I will hold back a little of my strength to get through the next few weeks and months. Namaste. The sacred in me recognizes the sacred in you. “

Before the operation, Bradbury, who has been married to Gerard Cunningham since 2000, shared a topless photo with her 135,000 Instagram followers and said she was grateful for her body.

She also urged others to check themselves regularly for breast cancer and not to be afraid to seek help if they have concerns about their health.
