    Shannen Doherty has slammed those who are not social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic

    The 48-year-old actress was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer in February, three years after going into remission, and she is furious that some people aren't sticking to the guidelines to remain two metres apart from people in public spaces, especially for those who are classed as vulnerable with underlying health conditions like herself


    Alongside a picture of herself holding up a piece of paper, which has "I am staying at home (and ranting) for all of us #StayHome" written on it, she wrote on Instagram: "I am staying home (and ranting) for us ALL. For my fellow cancer warriors who fight hard everyday for more time. For my mom. For my family. For my husband. For my mother in law and father in law. For my friends. For my friends kids. For every single one of you.

    "For myself with stage 4 cancer, my battle is hard enough. For one of my closest friend of over 28 years who has decided to end her battle with metastatic cancer and is in the hospital for the last time alone. For every doctor and hospital worker. For every person at a grocery store doing their best to help. For every person forced to be on the front lines. I'm doing this for us. Please join me. #stayhome (sic)"

    The 'Beverly Hills 90210' is "embracing every day" amid her cancer battle.

    And although she has days where she is "depressed" or feeling "plain lazy", she manages to "push through" with the help of her close circle of friends.

    One way she has been spending her time is by hiking and cooking healthy meals with her pals, which she admitted has made her feel "alive".

    In a tribute to her friends and giving an update on her battle with the disease, Shannen wrote on Instagram: "After a year of dealing with cancer coming back and other stresses, I'm back at it. Taking care of myself and embracing every day. It's not always easy. I have days I'm depressed or just plain lazy. But I push thru with the help of friends.

    "@annemkortright has been relentless in getting me to hike and learning new ways to cook that feed my soul as well as my tummy but in a very healthy way. She along with @cheforen @maliburadkitchen have made cooking healthy fun and sustainable. If that wasn't enough.... Annemarie brought in @kirastokesfit to kick my butt yesterday! It's been a productive great week. I feel better. My skin is alive and so am I. (sic)"
