Caprice discusses terrifying brain tumour surgery

Caprice has revealed she has been left 'vulnerable' by her brain tumour operation in March 2017.

While she pulled out of the ski-based series immediately, Caprice then had to endure a 'horrible' month waiting for the surgery - which she spent fearing it would not work.

She said: 'After the surgery I was so happy that I woke up, because you just don’t know. And when you wake up, you don’t know if you’re going to be the same.
