Samantha Womack has admitted she wants another baby after getting the all clear.

The former 'EastEnders' star revealed in November that she is cancer free after being diagnosed with breast cancer last summer, and she has been left feeling broody following her recovery.

The 50-year-old star - who is in a relationship with 'Coronation Street' actor Oliver Farnworth - told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I suddenly really appreciated my kids. I really wanted to do it all over again."

Samantha - who has son Benjamin, 21, and 18-year-old daughter Lili-Rose as well as stepson Michael from her marriage to Mark Womack - acknowledged it could be difficult after going through chemotherapy.

She added: "Obviously throughout treatment, your ovaries are challenged because chemo can change your hormonal status, so I don't even know if it would be possible now, post-treatment.

"And it sounds incredible greedy because I've done it."

And despite her daughter turning 18, the actress admitted she has felt a "real yearning" for more children.

She said: "Lili's 18. But I just suddenly had this real yearning. It was like another little switch.

"Ollie and I talked about it and said, well, never say never. If it's not possible naturally, there are other ways. I just want to celebrate life."

Meanwhile, Samantha recently urged the public to make sure they are self checking for breast cancer, to make sure any issues are found in time for treatment.

Appearing on 'Good Morning Britain', she said: "I never check myself, I've just been so strong all of my life so I was really fortunate that I just happened to do that when I did.

"Certainly, the term cancer-free is a little bit misleading.

"Luckily I've got it gone for now but with cancer, you have to be careful that you're keeping on top of everything and keep checking yourself."
