Danielle Armstrong has cancer scare
Danielle Armstrong has revealed her smear test flagged "abnormal cells" on her cervix and she will need to undergo regular screening to ensure they don't turn into something more sinister
Danielle Armstrong has had a cervical cancer scare.
The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star has been trying to encourage young women to have their smear test - also known as cervical screening - after doctors recently told her that she has "abnormal cells" in the entrance to the womb from the vagina.
Taking to her Snapchat account, the blonde beauty said: "I have got some abnormal cells, however they are cells that can naturally go away but I have got to have regular check ups every six months. So next one is June just to be sure so... all good."
And, although doctors have given her the all clear, the 28-year-old star thinks it could have been a "very different story" if she hadn't gone to get her three-yearly check up.
She added: "If hadn't had my smear test I would never have known about the abnormal cells and it could have been a different story."
Danielle's scare has come just a few weeks after she announced she was turning her back on 'The Only Way is Essex' following her split from James 'Lockie' Lock.
The blonde bombshell struck up a relationship with Daniel Spiller - a former Millwall footballer - shortly afterwards and wants to focus her attention on their romance.
A source said: "Danielle is really keen on Daniel. He's a real catch and they get on really well. Leaving 'TOWIE' was hard but she wants to focus on her life and she wants Daniel to be a part of that. Now she won't have to see James as much and he won't know everything that's going on in her life - it feels really refreshing for her."
Danielle - who had to watch her relationship with James play out on television for two years - is determined to keep her new romance away from the spotlight for the time being while she and Daniel, who was the victim of a suspected arson attack earlier this year, get to know one another, enjoy each other's company and see where it goes.
