STRICTLY Come Dancing’s Shirley Ballas fought back tears during an appearance on Loose Women today as she admitted “life is overwhelming for me”.

The 61-year-old star emotionally opened up about awaiting her test results after fans of the BBC One dance show spotted a lump under her armpit.

The TV judge quickly got this checked out after being alerted via social media, and she has now revealed that it “led to many other things”.

Asked for an update on the lump scare on the ITV lunchtime show today, Shirley’s voice cracked before she spoke as she shared her fear that she will get “emotional”.

Taking a breath, she then told the Loose Women ladies: “I have to admit, life is a little bumpy for me at the moment.

“It led to many other things. I don’t have the results yet but fans will be the first to know when there is a health update, I can only thank them.”

Reflecting on her medical concerns, Shirley added that the anniversary of her brother’s death is also approaching.

She confessed: “Life seems a little overwhelming.”

Last month, Shirley told The Sun that she had to undergo tests on all of her organs with doctors concerned by her high hormone levels.

The star’s testosterone levels — which cause significant medical issues to female organs — were said to be “the highest her doctor had seen in a female”.

The worrying findings came after concerned viewers contacted Shirley on Instagram in mid-October to draw her attention to a lump they had spotted in her armpit as she raised her arm while judging.
