Chanelle Hayes has revealed she's been going through a secret health battle that's only been diagnosed by doctors now.

The Big Brother star, who recently confidently showed off her bikini body after her nine stone weight loss, took to her Instagram stories to update her 120,000 fans on what's happened.

Sitting in a chocolate coloured jumper with her hair back in a ponytail and her glasses on, she shared: "Morning, so I've just had a phone call from the doctors regarding the results of an X-ray I had done.

"And, considering I'm only 35 years old, I've now been diagnosed with arthritis in both hips."

Sharing her frustration and devastation over the results, she continued: "Bit annoyed to say the least because I feel like it's going to hinder me from doing stuff that I need to do."

She then asked her followers if anyone else has been diagnosed with this in their 30s and if they could send some advice on how to deal with it.

Chanelle, who was recently praised over her "real body" in lingerie snaps, received loads of responses, including one person who suggested steroid injections and hot water bottles.

Another told the star to ask more questions and get a second opinion, while a third shared: "Research antiinflammatory foods and cut (down) on inflammatory foods/drink".

One fan asked whether it is rheumatoid or osteoarthritis, to which Chanelle responded: "Its osteo so although it's in both hips I was only really symptomatic in the left and apparently it's showing as worse on the left side xx".

While Chanelle is obviously devastated by the diagnosis, she does have many great things to look forward to as she's set to marry fiancé Dan Bingham.

And, alongside studying to be a nurse, she's announced a new career direction for both her and Dan.

Posting rare photos of her other half on Instagram, where they can be seen looking very loved up with one another, she wrote: "I’m so excited to let you all know a joint venture we are about to embark on… We have found a way to save and earn on our love for travel!!!!

"What if I told you all we have found a way to travel near or far with insider rates!

"Gives us complete time freedom to do this around our jobs! And allows us to earn up to 20% commission on any booking we make for others online!"

Chanelle went on: "I knew this was something that would fit perfectly with our busy work, family & social schedules and I can’t wait to show you all how you can do this too!!"

"Follow @jetsetwithchanellehayes and message me “info” to find out how you can access these insider rates too! #extraincome #cheaperholidays #familyfriendly #holiday," she added, followed by a sun emoji, a bikini emoji, a cocktail emoji and a beach emoji.
