‘Just a message to everyone to go and get checked. It really is worth it, it’s better to know and if there is a problem, early diagnosis. I’m very happy to know that I am all ok.’

In 2014, Lizzie revealed the shocking news that she was suffering from the pre-cancerous condition Barrett’s Oesophagus, which she believed had been brought on by her ‘out-of-control drinking’. 

The cause of the disease is thought to be long-term acid reflux, or heartburn – and alcohol consumption is thought to exacerbate the problem. 

‘I was never like my old friend George Best, but the truth is drink had become a problem for me,’ she told The Mail On Sunday.

Lizzie first sought medical advice after she ‘woke up in agony in the night with terrible chest pains, after months of not feeling well’, she recalled.

It comes after the TV personality claimed that she went blind after a filler procedure.

Lizzie told MailOnline: ‘I have never been so frightened as to think I could nearly have lost my eyesight by not doing my research and just wanting to look and feel better!’

Lizzie said that that within minutes, she knew that something was awry.

She said her eyes puffed up and as time went by, her vision started to go blurry.

Recalling the ordeal, she explained: ‘Well I literally was feeling a bit low and tired and a friend said: “Yes you do look rather tired Lizzie… have you not tried filler around the eyes? It can take 10 years off you!”

‘I really didn’t think too much about it and just thought: “Yes, why not?”

‘It was a knee jerk reaction as I just felt a bit low and had had a bit of a tough time so wanted to feel and look better – a quick fix!

‘But as soon as the treatment was done I could feel something was not correct.

I felt the needle go so close to my eye it scared me and as by the time I got home I could see my eyes had totally swollen up… like I had an allergic reaction!’

Luckily Lizzie was able to enlist an experienced eye doctor who was able to save her sight but insists others should think twice before having similar procedures.

The TV star also admitted she feared she wouldn’t be able to see her two sons, Josh and James, again
