Sam Fox has revealed that she has been given the all-clear after fearing she had cancer.

The model and singer had surgery last month to remove a lump from her throat which she found just days before her wedding to her tour manager Linda Olsen.

The growth was later revealed to be a benign polyp, but Fox has spoken to The Sun about her health fears and prior experiences with cancer.

Fox said: “I really cried a lot. I’m such a positive person but it’s hard when you’ve got something like that hanging over you. I was very fearful.”

She also opened up about watch Stratton struggle with the disease: “It felt very close to home, because I cared for Myra for so long after she was diagnosed with cancer in 2013.

"I saw her go down and down and down for two years. I watched her waste away and saw the amount of drugs she was on."

Fox's mother is a breast cancer survivor.

The star also revealed that she was thinking about what she'd do if her tests came back positive for cancer, saying: "I also thought that if it was bad news, and anything happened to me, I would see my late nan and grandad again, I’d see my dad — all the loved ones I’ve lost. That brought me a lot of comfort. But it was a very frightening time.”
