    Several messaged the judge to notify her about what they had seen, and on Saturday she took to Instagram to thank those who got in touch.

    The dancer is the head judge on Strictly

    In 2019, the judge had her breast implants removed, as it would reduce her risk of contracting breast cancer, something which runs in her family.

    She had suffered a cancer scare the year before when she was taking part in Who Do You Think You Are?, where she revealed that she was planning on having the operation.
