The veteran actress was left devastated when her partner of 30 years, Michael Williams, died of the disease in 2001.

And Dench is backing The Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation's Women Against Lung Cancer campaign to raise awareness of symptoms associated with the illness.

She says, "As a woman who has lost her husband to lung cancer, this is a campaign close to my heart.

"I would urge women who smoke to consider giving up or to be vigilant to the symptoms and see their doctor as early as possible if they have any concerns."
