On Australian show 60 Minutes, Kylie was asked by host Karl Stefanovic about how she got through her time suffering from the condition.

She joked: "Oh boy, how did I do that!" Before recalling: "Someone had said to me at the time: "You need to be a little bit selfish"

"It's not in my nature to be selfish but now is the time to do that let people take care of you. And...that's what I did."

Welling up, Kylie also spoke about what that time in her life taught her, saying: "Many things. I know I have strength but when you're fighting something where there is a lot of unknown it's a mixture, a mixture of emotions and memories."

She concluded: "It is years until you really get the all clear and by the time my hair started growing back it was very exciting, it was like a miracle."

Kylie also talked about her late ex boyfriend Michael Hutchence in the interview. Read what she had to say, here.
