Fans everywhere were devastated when Olivia Newton-John revealed that her cancer had returned.

The Grease star announced the return of her cancer in May, being forced to postpone her US and Canada tour as the cancer has now spread to other areas of her body.

Chloe, 31, appeared on The Morning Show yesterday to discuss her mum’s prognosis, revealing that she is doing “wonderful”.

The model and actress stressed that her mother’s positive attitude was working wonders, along with the different types of medicine she was trying.
