Strictly Come Dancing star Shirley Ballas gave fans an honest update regarding her recent health scare after viewers spotted a “lump under her right arm.”

The head judge took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a candid video after her blood work came back “a little concerning” and explained that she would be attending another appointment shortly to check “certain odd things happening in my body.”

Since the 62-year-old was flooded with comments from viewers online just two weeks ago regarding the suspicious lump on her arm, the doting mum has kept her loyal legion of fans up to date following her latest health journey.

Now, the dancer has revealed she will be having further tests done at a hospital in London as she thanked her devoted viewers for their support throughout the worrying ordeal.

The brunette beauty explained: “Good afternoon, everyone. Well, we’re just having a little check up with you, since several of you thought you saw a lump under my arm and I went to get that checked.

“Then the doctor said she thought my levels weren’t right, my hormone levels weren’t right. Anyway, so I went and had a lot of blood work done."

She added: “And now the testosterone has come back ultra-high, the adrenal glands need a scan and my ovaries need a scan.

“My oestrogen levels are extremely low, all in all, a little concerning for my doctor … that’s where we are at the moment.”

She went on to mention that a further appointment has been made for at her local hospital in London as she thanked her fiercely loyal viewers for their ongoing support and initial messages of concern regarding the lump on her arm.

Alongside her candid video, the mum-of-one penned: “So blood work back. A little concerning so dr is making an appointment at kings to check certain odd things happening in my body but I won’t go into the details at the moment.

“Any way to each and every one of you who started me on this road thank you so much. I’ll keep you all updated each and every one of you.

“Remember health is wealth so I'll be on top of these issues for the time being. With gratitude to you all. #health #gratitude.”

And Shirley’s 198,000 followers, including her fellow Strictly friends and co-stars, were quick to send their love to the professional judge online.

Former contestant Joe Sugg penned: “Sending love Shirley, wishing you all the best,” followed by heart emojis.

Host Tess Daly added: “Sending love Shirley xxx” while co-judge Motsi Mabuse chimed in with: “Take care of yourself,” accompanied by two heart emojis.
