This Morning's Josie Gibson has opened up about a secret procedure she's been considering for 'years'.

The 39-year-old TV star took to social media to share her experience, stating that she wanted to be transparent about the process.

She confessed: "Every time I get run down, I end up with tonsillitis" reports the Mirror.

"I ended up in hospital in December and over the years my right tonsil has been getting bigger... well no more my friends... bye bye ball bag tonsil."

The former Big Brother winner visited the Healthhub in London, sharing pictures from inside the clinic. She chose laser technology over a full tonsillectomy.

Josie explained her choice was due to not having "didn't have space in the diary to recover from".

"I'm sharing this because I've been looking into it for years," she added.

The TV host informed her followers that the procedure was completed in 10 minutes, posting a picture of a machine filled with a yellow substance.

Adding a touch of humour, she included James Blunt's hit Goodbye My Lover in her post, explaining: "That's my vaporised tonsil using laser technology."

Recently, Josie has been at the centre of romance rumours with ITV co-star Stephen Mulhern, after they were spotted hand-in-hand on their way to the final episode of Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway.

The duo were spotted looking quite close, fuelling whispers that they might be more than just pals.

When MailOnline probed about their connection, Josie told them: "I'm in love with Stephen Mulhern. There you go. But story of my life, I don't think he loves me."

Despite the buzz, Josie later clarified that they are simply "really good friends".

Yet, the gossip didn't stop there, as both Josie and Stephen faced questioning on This Morning recently.

Earlier in the month, while showcasing top camping gear on the ITV show, host Ben Shephard got sidetracked by a dummy, teasingly asking: "What's that over your right shoulder? " To which Josie joked: "That's my new boyfriend. He's got more personality than the last."

Ben couldn't resist a jibe: "Don't tell Stephen Mulhern, he'll be furious", leading Josie to retort: "You two are so naughty! " That same week, Stephen presented an ASMR segment, caressing bubble wrap and declaring: "I'm having the time of my life."

Ben quipped: "Is that because he's dating one of the family? Is that what it is?" referring to the rumoured romance with Josie.

Stephen's comeback was a playful "Oh shut your face! ", while host Cat Deeley teased: "We couldn't let you go without... Josie."

Ben added: "The picture says it all."
