Carol has been open about her mother's previous battles with cancer, writing on Twitter in 2015: "Mum having 3rd cancer op today but this op is minor compared to the previous ones thankfully.

"Mum has had a 3lb ovarian tumour removed (miraculously it hadn't spread).

"Then she had kidney cancer so half of her right kidney was removed, this time it's a pretty big malignant melonoma, but Mum says "goodness me, this is nothing. I'll be in and out in no time".

"Scans have shown this skin cancer hasn't spread either so we consider ourselves lucky children today (sic)."
