Michelle Heaton chose to have both her breasts removed a year ago to the day, and has posted an incredibly positive Twitter message to mark the occasion.

The pregnant mum-of-one, who opted to have the double mastectomy last year after learning she carries the BRCA2 gene - increasing her chances of having cancer in the future - said "we couldn't be happier."

Michelle took to Twitter on Thursday to say: "A year today I underwent a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery.. To help prevent breast cancer given I am BRCA2 positive....

"I was tough on the outside but was just a frightened girl on the inside.. It's been a rough 12 months... Now, expecting our 2nd child..

"We couldn't be happier. I have a rough road ahead still, but thanks to my birthday boy husband @hughhanley we will get through it. X"

She ended the heartfelt tweet with "#blessed xxxx"
