Michelle Heaton Takes To Twitter To Thank Fans For Support As She Seeks Counselling

Michelle Heaton has taken to Twitter to thank her fans for their support following her revelation that she has an 80% risk of developing cancer.

Opening up about her health issues, the star who is mum to six month-old Faith, told OK!: “I have an 80% chance of getting ovarian cancer or breast cancer – and that’s on top of everybody else’s one-in-three chance.

“I’ve got to have an operation and we’ve got some decisions to make – whether I should have a double mastectomy and if I should have my ovaries removed to reduce the risks.”

Having got a barrage of well wishes from her fans, the star took to her page to thank them. She wrote: “There is so much love and great advice coming my way from you all.. I really really appreciate it . I promise I do read u all… ”

With so much to take in, the former Liberty X star revealed that she will be attending counselling sessions, adding:

“…Some of your stories are heart wrenching and inspirational.. I’m off for counselling today & some advice into the operations. Big love.x”

The revelation that Michelle could be facing a big risk comes after the star was rushed to hospital over the weekend after having a heart scare.

Get well soon Michelle!
