JANEY Godly has been sadly diagnosed with stage three ovarian cancer.

The Glasgow comedian shared the diagnosis with her followers in an emotional video.

In it, she said: "It’s been, I think, 9 days since my hysterectomy. I’m still over at Shirley’s, recuperating in the best place possible.

"My family are back in Glasgow, they are… everybody is just dealing with the news that… I just thought that if I got the hysterectomy, that would be the end of everything, but it’s not, it’s the beginning because I have got stage three ovarian cancer.

"I thought the big operation, that would be it, get on with everything, heal up the scar, get back on tour.

"Not so, my life is completely changed and I have to process what this means now. And, it’s obviously going to mean chemotherapy and treatment. I don’t have any other options other than pretending it doesn’t exist and buying an around-the-world plane ticket and just flying around the world, pretending it doesn’t exist.

"And I don’t think that’s an option. I think the best option is to admit that this exists and to process it."

Godley was hospitalised with ovarian cancer in November and underwent the operation earlier this month.

She has been regularly updating her fans on social media in frank and honest posts.

In the video, she promised to keep doing so and added: "I am absolutely terrified. I am not brave in the least, I am frightened, I am in shock.

"I have got really good people around me, that’s the best thing I can tell you and thank you for all your support and love...”

According to Cancer Research UK, stage three of the disease means it is larger and 'may have started to spread into surrounding tissues and there are cancer cells in the lymph nodes nearby.'
