Our thoughts and prayers are with Jessica Knowles, the ex-wife of TV presenter Nick, who has today revealed that she is battling cervical cancer.

 

Jessica, who is mum to son Eddie, took to Instagram to announce the sad news – just months after DIY SOS star Nick announced their split.

 

Posting a photo of herself with her young son, 28-year-old Jessica wrote: “With sadness…After a brief period of being unwell I unfortunately diagnosed, this week, with cervical cancer. Following on from a difficult year, it has forced me to put a lot of things into perspective and really brought to light what matters; my health and Eddie.”

 

 

With sadness After a brief period of being unwell I was unfortunately diagnosed, this week, with cervical cancer. Following on from a difficult year it has forced me to put a lot of things into perspective and really brought to light what matters; my health and Eddie. I am going to use this time to focus solely on my health and use all spare energy for making sure Eddie's home life remains as happy and normal as positive. I have been so overwhelmed with love from friends and family and am a huge believer in 'things happening for a reason' and this will undoubtably be a huge time of learning for me. Mostly I'm grateful and feeling lucky it has been caught early as we are hopeful I can be treated with surgery. So, for a brief while, I'm switching off - from blogging and social media to get better - before finishing off what will undoubtedly be an amazing year (I'm due a f#cking break ) Sending everyone a huge cyber hug and I hope that you'll continue to join me on my blogging journeys when I'm back.

“I have been so overwhelmed with love from friends and family, and am a huge believer in ‘things happening for a reason’, and this will undoubtedly be a huge time of learning for me. Mostly I’m grateful and feeling lucky it has been caught early, as we are hopeful I can be treated with surgery,” she added.

 

 

The doting mum added that she will be taking a break from blogging and social media as she faces into treatment.

 

We are so sorry to hear Jessica’s news, and we sincerely hope she will make a full recovery.
