Camilla Dallerup has a special reason for wanting to tell cancer to 'jog on’

Dancer and TV presenter Camilla Dallerup married ex-Hollyoaks actor Kevin Sacre in July 2010 on a beach in Ibiza, accompanied by her best friend and bridesmaid Andrea.

Earlier this year, Camilla was devastated when Andrea was diagnosed with cancer of the womb.

Six weeks ago, she had her womb removed.

That’s why Camilla, 39, and Andrea are both joining Now’s Race For Wife fund-raiser on 22 June in London.

Andrea is still recovering from her op so they’ll both be walking the 5k instead of running. 

‘Andrea is only 43,’ says Camilla. ‘I just feel lucky that she’s still here with us.

‘She had various tests, which came back fine.

‘But Andrea still didn’t feel right so she went back to the doctors.

‘They did a biopsy thank God, which picked up the cancer.

‘If you think something isn’t right, keep looking for an answer.

‘Andrea had an operation six weeks ago and is doing really well.

‘She’s lucky it was caught early.’

Camilla will be wearing her Suzanne Neville wedding dress.

‘It was perfect for our beach wedding in Ibiza,’ she tells us.

‘Kevin texted me while I was on the Now shoot to ask if I could send him a photo, which is very sweet.

‘It makes me feel very emotional but for lots of different reasons.’
