Fellow islander Dr Alex, who appeared on the series in 2018, commented to say he’s “sending love” while villa pal Paige Turley, who won the 2020 winter series with Finley Tapp, replied: “You got this girl.”

Demi took to Instagram on Wednesday to tell her followers about her results, after the lump was removed from her neck in April.

She wrote: “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 first told fans about her health concerns at the start of April, revealing her shock when doctors told her the lump could be “potentially cancerous.”
