Loose Women's Kéllé Bryan broke down in tears as she discussed her eight years of gruelling chemotherapy during Monday's show. 

The former Eternal star, 48, revealed how she has been undergoing the treatment after being diagnosed with Lupus, which affects her immune system, way back in 2000.

Kéllé was overcome with emotion when discussing the chemo's side effects and said she continues nevertheless in order in live a happy and healthy live with son Regan, 11 and nine-year-old daughter Kayori. 

When asked about her treatment on Friday's show the singer said: ' On and off, now I've narrowed it down to once per year, but it has been over the last seven to eight years, periodically, but now I'm down to once a year'. 

Then asked if she too had lost her hair as a result, like fellow panellist Brenda Edwards, 54, who suffered breast cancer, Kéllé choked back tears.

As the audience applauded the star took a moment to compose herself before continuing: 'Wow. I wasn't expecting that'. 

'I think for me, it's about your children, I do that so I can have the life that I have with my children. For me, that eight hours in the [chemotherapy] chair, I can then live a relatively normal, happy life, with my children'. 

Adding: 'I can still do the things that I've always wanted to do with them and live the life I've wanted to live with them'. 

Kéllé's voice broke as she went on to reveal about she often feels before treatment: 'You think about all of the things that you're then going to feel. And I think for women in particular, you know, losing your hair is just so difficult. 

Lupus causes the immune system to mistakenly attack healthy body parts. It can also cause ulcers and rashes, joint pain and extreme tiredness. 

It's still unknown what causes lupus but sunlight, stress, smoking, certain medicines, and viruses may trigger symptoms in people who are most likely to get lupus due to their genes.

There is no cure for the disease but treatments can help reduce symptoms. No two cases of lupus are the same, making it notoriously difficult to diagnose. 

Last year Kéllé said how her skin was now fully healed after she suffered painful ulcers all over her body in her twenties as a result of the condition.
