LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Actress Christina Applegate, famed for playing ditzy daughter Kelly Bundy on TV comedy "Married ... With Children," is fighting breast cancer, but expected to make a full recovery, her spokeswoman said on Saturday.


Applegate, 36, was diagnosed with cancer during a regular MRI, spokeswoman Ame Van Iden said in an email.

"Christina is following the recommended treatment of her doctors and will have a full recovery," Van Iden said.

Applegate, whose mother battled both breast and cervical cancer, has been an advocate for breast cancer research.

She rose to fame in the 1980s on "Married ... With Children," won an Emmy for a guest role as Jennifer Aniston's sister on "Friends," and now plays an amnesiac in her own sitcom, "Samantha Who?"

Applegate's cancer diagnosis was reported earlier by the Hollywood gossip TV show Extra
