It was good to see Michelle looking so fabulous following a scary time lately.

She revealed in an interview with The Sun this week that she'd discovered two small lumps in her breast tissue earlier this week: a shock considering she underwent a double mastectomy three years ago.

Michelle has been open about her health struggles in the hope of inspiring and helping other women in a similar situation.

The mother of two chose to undergo a double mastectomy and a full hysterectomy after learning she carries the BRAC2 gene which can give an increased risk of breast or ovarian cancer.

Michelle - who supports Breakthrough Breast Cancer - thought that was all behind her until she discovered the lumps and visited her doctor. Two biopsies came back inconclusive until thankfully, a specialist ruled the lumps were benign.

"I know to be vigilant and not mess around and to always keep checking because you can never get rid of all the tissue… I needed the realisation I wasn't bionic. I feel so positive now and I check myself every couple of days."
