Janice Dickinson has revealed that she's been diagnosed with breast cancer.
The star, who famously calls herself the 'world's first supermodel', has told of how a lump in her breast was found during a routine examination earlier this month, with a mammogram and biopsy later confirming it to be cancer.
Janice has since been informed she has early stage ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), which is a common form of breast cancer that starts in the milk ducts.
However, the star - best known to UK fans for her stints on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' in 2007 and 'Celebrity Big Brother' in 2015 - has refused to take the diagnosis lying down, and has insisted she will fight it.
Speaking to MailOnline, she said: "Just two weeks ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer, it's hard for me to say this, but I have been diagnosed with breast cancer.
Recalling the moment she was diagnosed, the former 'America's Top Model' judge went on: "I'm always optimistic, initially when the doctor found the lump it hurt, it became quite painful when you touch it, that's the point when I knew this is serious, when the doctor touched this little lump in my right breast, about the size of a pea, and I went, 'Bingo, I have cancer.'"
Janice, who is mum to two grown-up children, also revealed that she will share her battle with the disease on US TV show 'The Doctors', which will follow her as she undergoes treatment.
