In a Twitter post, Godley says that she is being treated for ovarian cancer after being diagnosed the previous day
I’m really sorry I can’t make the Musselburgh and Edinburgh shows this weekend, it’s the very last dates of the tour and the tour has been so brilliant and so well attended and successful. Unfortunately while I was doing the tour I, unbeknownst to me, had ovarian cancer. I want to thank everyone for all their support and all their help and for coming out and sharing so much laughter with me. Onto the next step of the journey, and what is that journey? I don’t know if I’m going to be one of these people who battle bravely and fight every step, I don’t know, that doesn’t feel how I’ve been the last day where I’ve done nothing but cry and cry and cry. But I’m going to use science, and technology and I’m going to try and cope with this next step of my journey.
