Strictly head judge Shirley Ballas claims she has been through “a whirlwind” in the past two weeks because of a new health scare.
The Queen of Latin was alerted that something might be wrong with her by eagle-eyed viewers.
They spotted what looked like a lump under her arm during one of the live shows and posted messages on social media urging her to get it checked.
Grateful Shirley, 61, – who has had cancer scares before – booked an appointment with the doctor to get it checked out.
But she was shocked when the medic revealed the tests showed the level of testosterone in her body was “the highest she’s seen in a female”.
Now she has revealed she is due to have a scan of all her organs at King’s College London on Friday.
Speaking on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, Shirley said: “The last two weeks have been like a whirlwind with everything else I have been doing.
“But I was doing an ole paso doble move, put up my right arm, one or two people got in touch. I kind of ignored it.
“And then there were about 11 people so I thought I had better go to the doctor.
“So I went off to see my doctor, Doctor Leonard. She had a little feel around, she couldn’t feel anything.
“But she had some past blood tests from a few months before – I hadn’t gone back for the results, my fault – so she re-did all my bloods last week and she was alarmed by the testosterone levels, the lack of oestrogen levels and other things that were going on.”
The TV judge hopes to get her scan results back within a week to 10 days.
But she has stressed she will not dwell on the potential health impacts of high testosterone.
She added: “I try not to worry because it is so busy and there are other things and people are relying on me.
“So just every single day I keep moving forward. I don’t dwell on it because it will be what it will be.”
Shirley has got every reason to be concerned about her welfare.
She suffered a cancer scare over a lump in her shoulder back in June.
And she had her DD breast implants removed in 2019 after a growth was discovered in her chest.
