Shirley went to hospital after a lump was spotted under her arm by worried fans when she was on TV.

An urgent scan of all her organs was booked at King’s College, London after concerns were flagged by her doctor about her high testosterone levels.

“Internal probe, ovaries, kidneys, adrenal glands. Then a scan on my tummy for another view. Hopefully results soon,” said Shirley about her visit to the hospital.
