Hollywood actress Shannen Doherty has revealed she is in remission from breast cancer.

The former 'Beverly Hills 90210' actress (46) said she had "no idea how to react" after hearing that she had beaten the illness, which she discovered in 2015.

She wrote on Instagram: "Moments. They happen. Today was and is a moment.

"What does remission mean? I heard that word and have no idea how to react. Good news? YES. Overwhelming. YES."

Doherty, who has documented her battle with the disease on social media, announced earlier this year that she had completed chemotherapy and was playing the "waiting game".
