After battling breast cancer, 'Coronation Street' actress Sally Dynevor hopes she never has to see her wig again
Sally Dynevor hopes she never has to see her wig again.
The 'Coronation Street' actress - who battled breast cancer at the same time as her soap alter-ego Sally Webster - admitted after beating the disease earlier this year, she immediately threw her hairpiece in a cupboard.
She said: "The wig is in the cupboard somewhere. I hope never to have to see it again. It's just a memory for me now, thank goodness. Symbolically, not having to wear the wig is very important. It shows the world that I've made it through to the other side of the tunnel.
"There are no longer any visual reminders of my illness. I really want to move on and don't want to be always defined by the fact that I had breast cancer."
However, battling the illness made Sally - who is mum to Phoebe, 16, Sam, 14, and Hatty, seven - realise the importance of "seizing every moment" in life.
She added to Soaplife magazine: "When you go through something like this, you realise how valuable everything is. Take my family, for instance. We were always a tight unit but now we're closer than ever.
"We simply enjoy being with each other. You have to seize every moment while you can."
