Teal is the colour of ovarian cancer awareness, which is alarmingly low in the UK.

Lesley said: “Having personally known two women who died as a result of late diagnosis, I know how crucial this issue is and really wanted to take part to support women with ovarian cancer and their families.”

Every year 7300 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer in the UK, and 4100 women die from the disease.
