Former Divinyls frontwoman Chrissy Amphlett is celebrating after she was given the all-clear from breast cancer.
The I Touch Myself hitmaker revealed she was living with multiple sclerosis in 2007 and she was dealt another health blow when doctors diagnosed her with cancer last year.

The 51-year-old Australian began treatment in her adopted home of New York – and now doctors have confirmed she has beaten the disease.

In a series of posts on her Facebook.com page, she writes, “As of last Friday I am officially cancer free.

“Thankyou to those who have given their support and love, now lets celebrate Life!!!!! Today, I have no answers. I only know that I was given a chance to reflect on my own mortality; given a chance to choose life over the fear of death.”
