How can I delete items from my iCloud back-up?

My iPad and iPhone keep saying they can't back up because I have limited iCloud storage.
How do I delete individual items from my iCloud backup. Is that possible?

You can untick items in Settings => iCloud on your phone. If, e.g., you untick photos, then photos are no longer backed up, and the space they took up 'in the cloud' is freed up.

Tbh, with the default free 5GB I don't understand why even bother... Contacts, settings and such things, maybe. But photos etc? Just use the PC.
