I'm Pleased To Inform You Sandy From "Grease" Is Not Dead

    "I'm doing great!"

    I am pleased to inform you that Olivia Newton-John, who was diagnosed with cancer for a third time in 2017, says she is "doing great".

    ONJ fans were shocked this week to read media reports, based on an online tabloid story from a "source", suggesting Newton-John was "clinging on to life" and had only weeks to live.

    Newton-John has responded to the rumours in a new video on Twitter and Facebook.

    Quoting Mark Twain, ONJ said the rumours of her death "have been greatly exaggerated".

    Happy New Year! Here’s to a wonderful 2019! Love & light, Olivia

    "I'm doing great and I want to wish all of you the happiest, healthiest 2019 as possible. Thank you all for your wonderful love and support," she said.

    So there we have it. The rumours are a fake and a phony and I wish I'd never laid eyes on them.

    BuzzFeed has approached Newton-John's representatives for comment.
