Majella O’Donnell has revealed why she’s given up on her health kick.
The 55-year-old breast cancer survivor, who overhauled her lifestyle after getting the all-clear from the doctors, admitted it left her ‘miserable’.
“I gave up coffee and tea, I went organic, I stopped drinking wine…and I just thought, this is miserable, I can’t live like this,” she said.

“The oncologist gave me a few tips. Green tea is beneficial, exercise is very good, don’t put plastic into the microwave.”
Despite her recent cancer battle, the Tipperary native revealed she wants to “live life to the fullest” now.
“What will be, will be. I mean, I’m reasonably healthy. I exercise, I keep my weight in check. I’m not negligent. I’m just not going to be OTT,” she told the RTE Guide.
Opening up about her terrifying diagnosis two years ago, the mother-of-two insisted that she never let herself get caught up with negative thoughts.

“I’m the kind of person who won’t allow myself to take things like that on board. I didn’t think, ‘Oh God, I have cancer, I could die’,” she said.
“I’m a positive thinker and I’d say to myself, ‘Don’t be ridiculous. You’ll have an operation and be fine.
“Take it one day at a time and don’t think about five years down the line.'”
Majella added that her crooner husband of 13 years, Daniel, was a “rock” throughout her illness.
