Love Island’s Faye Winter has shared with her followers that she recently had a potentially cancerous mole removed after it was noticed that she had a scar on her stomach.

Faye, who rose to fame after the previous season of Love Island, shared the news in a YouTube video after fans realised she had a new scar on her stomach in shots from an ad campaign for Ann Summers.

In the video, Faye explained that she decided to get a mole on her stomach checked after she noticed it had changed since her time in the villa.

“I am quite a moley person, I always have freckles and moles but one mole, in particular, has grown quite a bit since I went into the villa and it was in the sun for the whole summer,” she began.

“So I am just going to have it looked at because it’s a little bit abnormal. In fact, a few of you guys have noticed it, which is another reason why I am going to go and get it checked.”

Afterwards, she shared that the doctors she had seen “didn’t like the look” of her mole. “They have decided they are going to remove the mole, which is fine. The first doctor said they didn’t know and then another doctor came in and she didn’t like the look of it so she said to be on the safe side let’s get it taken out.”

After her surgery, Faye shared she was in a lot of pain and had been “crying a lot”. Showing the scar, she said, “I didn’t think it was going to the painful.”

Explaining that she’s still waiting for the biopsy results, Faye revealed that she’s optimistic “I’m 99% sure it’s going to be absolutely fine.”

Continuing, Faye explained why she decided to share her experience, she mentioned that she wanted to encourage others to also get their moles checked regularly, especially if they notice any changes.

Wishing Faye all of the best!
