An emotional Alexandra wrote on Twitter: "I'm so happy I could cry.

I love you so much ma @mammaj52. Time to live ya life girl!

"Chemotherapy is gruelling let me tell you, and I'm not the person who had to go through it. It really is a test of your strength. To anyone who has been through it or going through it... keep going and don't give up."

Dr. Alex George admits Love Island was challenging

The 27-year-old star appeared on last year's series of the ITV2 dating show and was coupled up with Dr Alex George until he ditched her days before the final.

However, she has praised the programme as a "positive" experience because it gave her back her body-confidence.

She said: ""Love Island" was really positive for me - it actually made me more confident in my own skin. I fell in love with the person I really am. That's better than finding love for a few months isn't it?

"Before the show I was so self-conscious about my body. I was bullied, fat shamed and body shamed at school - I was scared to go. I went for a consultation for a nose job at one point.

"Looking back it was ridiculous but at the time it was all-consuming. Now I realise it's not the be all and end all of what I am about. I've learned to be fearless. On that show you are exposed. Everyone has an opinion about you suddenly. You learn to be thick-skinned."
