Olivia, 69, told The Today Show she was using medical marijuana to help her through the pain.

She explained: “ I take a lot of natural herbs and healing remedies and also medicinal cannabis that’s helped me a lot.

“’Initially I had a lot of pain. I don’t have pain now.”

Olivia’s husband John Easterling is an importer of herbal medicines and introduced Olivia to its pain relieving qualities.

She added: “I’m so lucky. I’m married to an amazing man who is a plant medicine expert.”

Shortly after her diagnosis, Olivia thanked her fans for supporting her.

She said: “Firstly, I would like to express my gratitude to all of you who sent such kind and loving messages of support over the past few months.

“Your prayers and well wishes have truly helped me and continue to lift my spirits.

“I’m feeling great and so look forward to seeing you soon.”

The much-loved entertainer also told her fans about a campaign she was backing fundraising for cancer patients.

Olivia explained: “During this healing time, recovering from my breast cancer relapse, I’ve had time to reflect on how proud I am of the centre and the important contribution it makes to the lives of the communities it serves.
