"So incredibly proud of my beautiful best friend, my Mumma… I’ve not been myself recently and my family have been having a really hard time, one that I never thought would ever happen," she began.

"For the past few weeks we have been living a nightmare undergoing scans tests and all sorts to get to the bottom of what’s wrong with her. Having had cancer affect my dad when we were just kids, you really don’t expect it to happen again.

"But it is, effecting her stomach and other areas," the star continued. "Life can really challenge and test you. Unexpectedly. Without any warning.

"You can’t take anything for granted. But as a close family unit we will make sure we do what we can to make my Mum okay.

"Yesterday mum was dreading having her endoscopy from a bad experience years ago and thanks to the lovely doctor who breezed mum through it, she didn’t feel a thing. For that I am proud of her," she added.

Meanwhile, back in 2021, Marilyse opened up about her decision to donate a kidney to ex-partner Shaun Bell, explaining that she wanted to ensure that her and their teenage sons would be able to spend more years with their dad.
