She told fans in her Instagram story that she is now due to have more surgery to remove the rest of her thyroid.

Sharing the sad news on Instagram, Demi wrote: "Hi guys, I got my results today and unfortunately I have thyroid cancer.

"The tumour has been removed but I'm now due to have more surgery to remove the rest of my thyroid.

"I'm staying very positive and I'm a strong girl so I'll be fine.

"Thank you for your love and support always. I'll bounce back stronger."
