Her announcement came after the panel had been discussing whether they talk about their health with their partner.

Andrea didn't go into detail about her surgery, but added that there were "lots of personal reasons" for her choosing to go ahead with it. "I did go to the doctors and talk about it," she said.

Andrea then told the panel: "I will be at home watching you guys and maybe tweeting in, but that's where I'll be if you're wondering."
