The Real Full Monty’s Victoria Derbyshire, 49, left viewers in tears as she broke down over her cancer battle when the show aired this week.
The journalist joined her fellow female stars, including Coleen Rooney and Megan McKenna, as they prepared to reveal all as they raised awareness and money for cancer charities.
However, things became too much for the Victoria as she and the girls practiced poses with choreographer Ashley Banjo. Breaking down in tears, the star said she felt embarrassed as she hadn’t cried about her cancer battle in a long time.
Victoria had bravely showed off her figure on the show, having previously undergone a mastectomy following a breast cancer diagnosis.
Now, the star has thanked fans online following her breakdown, breaking her silence following the very emotional scenes.
“Wow 5.2 million people watched last night, peaking at 5.9m. Thank you so much everyone! #TheRealFullMontyLadiesNight,” the star tweeted.
