‘So yesterday lunchtime I had keyhole surgery to remove my tumour (AKA Terry) and in the words of my amazing surgeon it couldn’t have gone any better!’ Mel wrote in an Instagram post during last year’s festive season. 

She accompanied her post a photo of the TV star in a hospital bed, giving a thumbs up with a tube in her nose. 

Mel added: ‘Crucially the cancer hadn’t spread to my abdominal cavity, which was our greatest fear but was entirely localised in my colon.’ 

‘Over the coming days I will discuss my treatment plan going forwards but suffice to say that Terry is toast!’

Mel then revealed her treatment had taken place in London and went on to praise the UK’s National Health Service (NHS).

Mel said she was diagnosed just one month after she began to feel pain in her stomach while filming MAFS Australia’s upcoming eleventh season.
