Olivia Newton-John diagnosed with cancer for the third time

Grease's leading lady Also speaking on Sunday Night Olivia confirmed that she probably had a crush on co-star John Travolta

Speaking to Australia's Sunday Night, Olivia Newton-John confirmed that she's battling cancer for the third time.

While Olivia beat her second bout of cancer, she is now battling the disease again, with a tumour a year ago found at the base of her spine.

She also confessed she had secretly battled another round of the disease in 2013, when medics found a tumour in her shoulder, but chose not to go public with the news, until now.

She said: "I thought "It's my life" and I just made a decision to keep it to myself".

Olivia revealed she was involved in a minor vehicle accident five years ago which led to the discovery of a lump on her back, and whilst she originally thought it was caused by the strain of her seatbelt during the collision, subsequent scans revealed the lump was actually the return of breast cancer.

"I love to sing, it's all I know how to do", she said.

She had a mastectomy and underwent nine months of debilitating chemo to kill the cancer cells. As for why she kept her second bout with cancer on the down-low: "I thought". I truly believe this will be my final round with cancer.

Asked how she's coping, Olivia admitted: "I have my moments, but I'm not going to have my moment here!"

She was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992.

Newton-John, who will turn 70 in a few weeks, was catapulted to fame when she starred opposite actor John Travolta in the high school musical "Grease". I see as part of my mission. "It's hard to say, they help with pain", Olivia said.

"A lot of cannabis my husband grows for me".

She's cut sugar out of her diet entirely and uses medical cannabis tinctures from plants that her husband, John Easterling, legally grows on their California property, to help with pain and sleep, and hopes Australia will legalize medical marijuana for similar reasons.

"I'm still treating it and I'm treating it naturally". And, um, I'm a very privileged person, and I'm very aware of that. "I'm doing really well". "I have a wonderful husband, I have all the animals I adore, I have an incredible career". I have nothing, really, to complain about'.
