Shirley Ballas Gets 'Concerning' Blood Tests Results Back

Strictly Come Dancing judge Shirley Ballas has revealed she's had some 'concerning' blood results back, after viewers spotted something unusual in an episode of the show recently.

The 61-year-old dancer and BBC presenter was alerted to a lump under her arm by several worried viewers, and so she went to get it checked out.

She said: "Since several of you thought they saw a lump under my arm and I went to get that checked. Then the doctor said that she thought my levels were not right. My hormone levels weren't right. So I went and had a lot of blood work done."

Shirley then revealed that blood tests found her testosterone levels were "ultra high", her oestrogen levels were "extremely low" and that she now needs a scan on her adrenal glands and ovaries.

"All in all a little concerning for my doctor," Shirley said, adding that she was due to go in for an appointment at Kings Hospital, London.
