Kylie Minogue has said her family "all fell to pieces" when she was told she had breast cancer last year, in her first interview since the diagnosis.
Kylie Minogue had surgery for breast cancer last May
The singer, 38, said her first reaction to the news was: "No, I'm getting on a plane", to continue a tour.
But her parents, who were with her, said: "No you're not - sit down", Minogue says in the interview to be shown on Sky One on 16 July.
Minogue has been in recovery since undergoing surgery and chemotherapy.
She finished chemotherapy in December 2005, but still receives treatment to prevent a return of the cancer.
In the interview with presenter Cat Deeley, Minogue talks about her treatment and recovery, as well as plans for a new album and tour.
Last month she announced plans to stage the Australian leg of her Showgirl tour she was forced to postpone last year.
It has been renamed the Showgirl Homecoming tour and is due to start in November.
Australian concert promoter Michael Gudinski said Minogue "has still got a few mountains to climb".
But he added: "You can't keep Kylie down. She's actually recording in the studio and working on songs as we speak."
Minogue appeared on stage last month at the end of a concert by her younger sister Dannii at GAY in London's Astoria.
