The X Factor star TracyLeanne Jefford has revealed that she has been diagnosed with cancer at the age of 35.
Back in April, the singer was diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma (BCC), a non-melanoma skin cancer that is the most common skin cancer type in the UK.
TracyLeanne told The Sun: "It's completely turned my life upside down. I'm scared.
"As soon as I heard cancer we had a nervous breakdown — we've lost so many in our family from cancer. I ran out of the room because I thought, 'What's going to happen to me, to my children?'
"I don't like thinking about it, [it] makes me feel emotional. If it was on me arm it'd be OK but it's me nose, it's me appearance and being in the public eye, people looking at me, I shouldn't worry about what other people think about me because it's about what's inside.
"But from suffering from insecurities for so many years, this is what's getting me down now."
