Sam Faiers is relieved after having her mystery illness diagnosed as Crohn's disease.
'The Only Way is Essex' star, who lost a stone-and-a-half (21lb) over a period of six weeks due to her ailment, is "doing well" after medical tests confirmed she is suffering from the inflammatory bowel disease.
Sam's 'TOWIE' co-star Ferne McCann said: "She's doing really, really well. She's just happy to be at home surrounded by her family. Her mum looks after her so much."
"I think it's just a relief that she now knows, and that she been diagnosed with something."
"It's just a relief to have her home and on a speedy route to recovery."
The 23-year-old beauty underwent a battery of medical tests after coming down with the illness while in the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house last month.
However, Jessica Wright has praised her for powering through her stint on the reality show and making it to the final.
She told ITV's 'This Morning' today (21.02.14): "She did really well staying in that Big Brother house considering how ill she was. She was in bed for two whole days, I think, but we didn't get to see it."
Meanwhile, Sam is expected to appear on 'This Morning' next week to speak about her diagnosis for the first time.
