Love Island's Faye Winter worries fans as she reveals she's discovered lump in her breast

Love Island ’s Faye Winter has addressed her recent absence from social media as she opened up to fans about discovering a lump in her breast.

The season seven favourite, 27, shared the update in a heartfelt video on Instagram with her 1.2 million followers.

In the clip, Faye said: “I know that a lot of you have noticed that I have been quite quiet on here, especially since my girls' holiday where you guys were like, 'Where's all your content? Like, why are you not letting us in on it?'

"I didn't want to let anyone in too soon, I didn't feel like there was a right time to speak to you guys, but I feel like today is probably the day for it and if one person - one person has a check today then I will be so happy because I am going down for my breast care service two-week wait triple assessment."

The Love Island star went on: “Whilst I was on holiday with my incredible girlies, who I love so much, I was putting my suncream on and I thought, 'Ooh... what is she? She's new to my body...' And I found a little lump.

"So I went to my doctors two weeks ago and they referred me to Torbay, which I am going to today and I'm gonna have a mammogram and ultrasound [to] make sure everything's OK, make sure it's nothing sinister.

"I'm sure it probably isn’t - probably just a cyst or something but it's one of those things that has played on my mind, and I haven't really been able to get it out of my mind, which is fine."

Faye looked stunning in the short video, showing off her natural beauty with no make-up and her long blonde hair down and straight.

Wearing a comfy top and leggings, the 27-year-old asked her followers to check themselves over and pointed them in the direction of charity CoppaFeel, who have a huge number of resources to help people check their chests.

She said: "There's one thing I'm gonna ask you guys to do today... is just have a little check, because the NHS has been incredible, this has all been within a month.

"So please have a little check, make sure everything's OK and if there's anything you're worried about make sure you check out with your local GP. I will let you know how I get on obviously."

Faye later thanked her fans for their support and love as she sat outside the Breast Care Unit at Torbay Hospital.

The star fame on the Love Island back in 2021 and ultimately found love with fellow Islander Teddy Soares before they split earlier this year.
