I feel now is the right time to share what’s been going on.”

She currently is undergoing weekly chemo and according to the singer, she is “fighting as hard as I possibly can.”
“I’m currently undergoing weekly chemotherapy sessions and I am fighting as hard as I possibly can.
I understand this might be shocking to read on social media and that really isn’t my intention.
But last week it was mentioned online that I had been seen in hospital, so I feel now is the time to let people know what’s going on and this is the best way I can think of to do so.”
Continuing she said her mum, close family friends are helping her cope. She also went on to thank and praise the NHS staff for their heroic acts. While also using the opportunity to as for her privacy be respected.
“My amazing mum, family and close friends are helping me through this, and I want to say a thank you to the wonderful NHS doctors and nurses who have been and continue to be heroes.
I am doing my very best to keep positive and will keep you updated here with how I’m getting on.
In the meantime I hope you’ll all understand and respect my request for privacy during this difficult time.
Sending you all so much love….xx”
