Ballas received ‘concerning’ results to blood tests

On Tuesday (26 October) she said that doctors had received some “concerning” results from her blood tests.

“The doctor said that she thought my levels were not right, my hormone levels weren’t right,” she said.

She said her testosterone and oestrogen levels were not as they should be.

“All in all, a little concerning for my doctor,” she added in a video posted on Instagram.

“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.”

Her fellow Strictly judge Motsi Mabuse responded to Ballas’ video.

“Take care of yourself,” she wrote.
