Revealing how her oestrogen levels are 'extremely low' and her adrenal glands and ovaries are in need of 'a scan', Shirley said she'd booked in for an appointment at King's College Hospital in London.  

Addressing her fans directly in the video, Shirley said that her doctor determined her hormone levels 'were not right' and would need to undergo 'a lot of blood work'. 

'I went and had a lot of blood work done and now the testosterone's coming back ultra high, the adrenal glands need a scan and my ovaries need a scan. My oestrogen levels are extremely low. All in all a little concerning for my doctor,' she revealed.

Shirley said the next step is to attend an appointment at the King's College Hospital, and is incredibly grateful that 'several concerned people bothered' to let her know what was going on, in reference to Strictly viewers noticing the lump under her arm.
