Olivia Newton-John, 70, was forced to address vicious rumours about her health back in January.

And on Monday, the Grease star said that in hindsight, it was rather 'strange' to read reports that she was dying. 

Speaking on the Today show, the Hollywood icon, who is in the midst of treating stage 4 breast cancer, said she's doing 'great' and is optimistic about her recovery.

'It's a very strange feeling to read that you're dead,' she said of the vicious rumours which were started by Radar Online.

'...So I thought well I've got to make light of this because this is just going to continue on and get worse and worse so that's when I did the video saying the reports of my death were greatly exaggerated... I'm still here and doing great.

'I'm doing really well. In fact I just had some tests done and I'm doing great thank you... My dream is that we'll see an end to cancer in my lifetime.'
