Elizabeth Hurley on breast cancer awareness campaign

Actor and model Elizabeth Hurley has told the Victoria Derbyshire programme why she is campaigning for better awareness of what happens to women after a breast cancer diagnosis.

She told presenter Joanna Gosling that her own grandmother had died from breast cancer as she had been too embarrassed and scared to seek medical help.

"By the time she told us, it was at a stage where it wasn't really treatable."
