British singer/actress Michelle Heaton has decided to undergo a full hysterectomy to reduce her risk of developing ovarian cancer.

The former Liberty X star, 34, was diagnosed with a mutated Brca2 gene in 2012 and underwent a double mastectomy after doctors informed her she had an 80 per cent chance of developing breast cancer and a 30 per cent chance of developing ovarian cancer.

Now Heaton, who has two young children with husband Hugh Hanley, has decided to take the next step in a bid to preserve her health after learning she would not be able to have any more kids.

She tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "It's only natural for women to want that third child - and that can't happen to me. So for me to make that decision five years too early, it's heart-breaking. It's really difficult."

Heaton is not the only celebrity to go under the knife because of an elevated risk of developing cancer - in 2013, actress Angelina Jolie underwent a double mastectomy after being diagnosed with a defective Brca1 gene. She is also reportedly planning to undergo a preventive oophorectomy to have her ovaries removed.
