Chloe Madeley Undergoes Operation To Remove Pre-Cancerous Cells

Chloe Madeley has undergone surgery to remove pre-cancerous cells.

A smear test showed up the abnormal result, and the daughter of TV couple Richard and Judy, was taken into hospital to have the cells removed.

She tweeted a picture of herself wearing paper pants as she prepared to go down for her operation.

Trying to keep her mind off her health worries, she said: “Really? I could carry a kangaroo in here ... #surgerypants."

Thanking fans for their support, she added: “Guys thank you so much for all your well wishes and personal experiences today. You're all very sweet and really, genuinely calmed me. Xx.”

A spokesperson for the star confirmed to the Daily Mail: “Chloe had some surgery under general anaesthetic to remove some pre-cancerous cells that were found in a smear test. She’s feeling fine and is now recuperating at home."

Earlier this week, Chloe stripped off on the pages off Now magazine, posing for a photoshoot with boyfriend Danny Young.
