Wilson has explained how she went for a routine smear test in June and that the results showed possible signs of cancer.

The mother-of-one went for further tests the following month and the result showed that 3b cervical cancer that had spread to two of her lymph nodes.

The 37-year-old, who is mother to 23-month old daughter Mabel, received the news while supported by partner of six years Dan.

"I cried while a lovely nurse held my hand," she said.

"Then I cried to Dan, and he was quite shocked because he didn't really think it would be cancer. You're desperately hoping there's a chance it might not be."

Wilson added that her treatment has a success rate in the region of 70%, having been reassured that it is 'very treatable, and it's very curable'.

The NHS website states that cervical cancer is a cancer that's found anywhere in the cervix, which is the opening between the vagina and the womb.

They add that it usually grows very slowly. And how serious it is depends on if it has spread and the general health of the person.
