LOVE Island's Demi Jones put on a brave face on a night out after revealing she has cancer.
The 22-year-old star headed out on the town in London wearing a daring white dress after partying in her hometown of Portsmouth.
She had told fans with a snap of a heaving table of drinks: "Considering the news I got a couple of days ago, I feel like this amount of pornstar martinis is definitely allowed."
Love Island fans were devastated last week when Demi, a much-loved character in the 2020 series, revealed her diagnosis.
She said: "Hi guys, I got my results today and unfortunately I have thyroid cancer.
"The tumour has been removed but I'm now due to have more surgery to remove the rest of my thyroid."
"I'm staying very positive and I'm a strong girl so I'll be fine. Thank you for your love and support always. I'll bounce back stronger."
Demi went on to plead with fans to make sure that they're doing all they can to catch the disease during the early stages.
Thyroid cancer develops in your thyroid gland, which is located in your neck, and is usually noticed when a lump forms there.
The cells within the thyroid grow too quickly and create a lump.
Symptoms of thyroid cancer
The symptoms of thyroid cancer include:
- If you notice a painless lump or swollen glands in your neck
- Difficulty swallowing food and drink
- A sore throat that doesn't go away after a number of weeks
There are four types which include: papillary carcinoma, follicular carcinoma, medullary thyroid carcinoma, anaplastic thyroid carcinoma.
There are many ways to treat the disease including surgery to remove the thyroid, radioactive iodine treatment, external radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
Demi first noticed the lump back in 2019, but it was only after her stint on the ITV dating show that she decided to get it checked.
