FORMER TOWIE star Danielle Armstrong recently faced a health scare.
The reality star took to Snapchat to explain doctor’s found “abnormal cells” following her last smear test.
She urged her fans to book in for their own check-ups following her health scare, however assured them that she is okay.
Explaining the situation, the blonde beauty said: “I have got some abnormal cells, however they are cells that can naturally go away but I have got to have regular check ups every six months.
“So next one is June just to be sure, so… all good.”
She added: “But if I hadn’t had my smear test I would never have known about the abnormal cells and it could have been a different story.”
Since sharing her story with fans, Danielle has retweeted messages of support from her fans on Twitter, with many praising her for her honesty.

One wrote: “Loved @Daniarmstrong88 snap story last night about smear results… Abnormal cells can be treated! #bookyoursmear #cervicalcancer
Another added: “@Daniarmstrong88 I had abnormal cells, had regular check ups and then I had my daughter and since having her they have come back clear x.”
Smear tests are used to detect abnormal cells on the cervix, and the NHS welcomes all women for a cervical screening.
It is recommended that women aged 25-49 have a smear test every three years, while those aged 50-64 are tested every five years.
Danielle’s shocking revelation comes just a week after she took to Snapchat to apologise to fans for her “cringe” behaviour.
Following the breakdown of her relationship to her former TOWIE co-star James Lock, the blonde bombshell has been flaunting her new relationship with Daniel Spiller.
However, she admitted she thinks she went a little overboard with her Snapchat videos – especially during her most recent trip to Dubai.
She said: “So I’m back from Dubai as you all know, I did Snapchat quite a lot out there.
“I’m sorry if I was really cringe as well! Sometimes I get carried away a bit.”
And in a hilarious self-mockery, she added: “I turned into one of them girls that I take the p**s out of. Like: ‘I’m so happy, Dan playing football, Dan having a drink.’
“I promise to all my Snapchatters, I will chill out.”
She jokingly added: “Until I next see him. Then I’ll be all cringey again.”
Danielle offered a little insight into her adorable relationship whilst on their romantic getaway, tasked her beau with listing his five favourite things about her.
He responded: “Caring, loving, gorgeous, funny…and an animal!”
Danielle then took matters into her own hands, and listed everything she “loved” about Daniel, and said: “I’ve got 10 things I love about Dan.
“Caring, loving, trustworthy, loyal and handsome, homely – like, a family man – driven, ambitious, stylish… and f**king rich!”
