TV host Christine Bleakley has revealed a tense health scare in which doctors ordered her to have three moles cut from her leg, lower back and neck. The Dancing On Ice presenter, who is preparing to run 5k for Cancer Research UK's Race For Life, told of a nail-biting few days following the operation before being given the all-clear.
"I had my moles checked, just because I thought it was a good thing to do, and I discovered I had to have three removed. They were all fine, thank the Lord, but I had a period of not knowing whether it was fine or not." She was shocked when news of the operation on the moles was mentioned after originally going to see her doctor about a different mole altogether.
She said: "I was scared about one that I could see had got bigger, but the doctor wasn't even a bit perturbed about that one. These other three I'd hardly even noticed. It just goes to show you've got to keep check of your own body and keep a look on things. It's good to feel for lumps and bumps. I tell everyone to go and do that."
