Dilly Carter, who is best known for appearing in Stacey Solomon's BBC One show Sort Your Life Out, has issued a health update to her Instagram. She said she was left "traumatised" after having to go to hospital and told her fans they are "not alone".

In 2023 Dilly shared that she had been diagnosed with stage one cancer of the womb. She has been keeping fans updated with her recovery and had to spend the bank holiday in hospital after stomach problems.

Posting to her Instagram story, she said: "So my bank holiday weekend in Brighton didn't quite turn out..... my stomach wasn't playing ball. I had to have it drained due to a blockage making me sick.

"I've actually been quite traumatised by the process so haven't been able to focus as I currently still have a tube up my nose and directly into my stomach draining excess fluids... it's been a while since I've been speechless. But this literally has taken my breath and speech away it was such an ordeal.

"Luckily I'm better since the procedure but wow. I hope that's the first and last time I ever have to have that." In a separate post, Dilly told her followers they were "not alone" and she knows how "exhausting" recovery is.

She said: "Just a shout out to all those with ongoing health issues post cancer, post any major illness. I see you, I feel you, I know how exhausting and draining it is. You are not alone... I feel much better than I look. Once this tube is out today I'll be home and back to normal." For the latest TV & Showbiz news, sign up to our newsletter.
