Strictly Come Dancing head judge Shirley Ballas has returned to social media with another health update following her blood tests.

Last week, the 'Queen of Latin' thanked her fanbase for sharing their concerns over an apparent lump under her arm, and proceeded to book herself in for a full "body MOT". 

In a video posted today (October 26), she said that the medical professionals' findings were slightly worrying.

"I went and had a lot of blood work done and now the testosterone's come 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, so that's where we're at at the moment," Ballas continued.

In her Instagram caption, she went on to reiterate: "A little concerning so [the doctor] is making an appointment at [King's College Hospital] to check certain odd things happening in my body I won't go into the details at the moment. 

"Any way to each and every one of you who started me on this road thank you so much. I'll keep you all updated each and every one of you. Remember health is wealth so I'll be on top of these issues for the time being. With gratitude to you all. #health #gratitude [sic]."
