Julia revealed her diagnosis in a personal note to the public, just one day after her record-setting Emmy win.

The Veep star wrote: ‘1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I’m the one.’

‘The good news is that I have the most glorious group of supportive and caring family, and friends, and fantastic insurance through my union.

‘The bad news is that not all women are so lucky, so let’s fight all cancers and make universal health care a reality.’
