Tara Palmer-Tomkinson has revealed she's had a year-long battle with a brain tumour.
The 44-year-old had treatment for a non-malignant growth in her pituitary gland back in January, and has joyfully revealed it has finally cleared.
However, the socialite told The Daily Mail that when she received her diagnosis, she feared for her life.
“I went to the doctors to talk about my latest blood test results when I got back from skiing in January. I said: 'What does this mean? Can you translate it?' And the doctor said: 'As I suspected, you have a brain tumour'.
“I got terribly frightened. I started thinking, 'I'm going to die, I'm going to die. I've only got a couple of weeks to live.' Stuff like that.
“I actually feel very lucky. My growth was non-malignant but it affected the production of prolactin [a hormone]. I’ve been with people who have malignant brain tumours so I don’t want to be like, “Hey look at me”.
“I have been luckier. I’ve taken medication and thankfully, it seems to have gone away for now.”
We're glad Tara has made it through that battle.
Reality TV star and socialite Tara Palmer-Tomkinson was arrested at Heathrow Airport over the weekend it has been reported.
Tara began to throw something of an epic tantrum when she was refused entry to the first-class lounge at the airport and it allegedly took EIGHT police officers to control her and remove her from the scene. That really doesn’t sound good!
The former I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here star was said to be ripping out her hair extensions and screaming and shouting abuse, with a witness claiming: “She had completely lost control and was screaming at the officer. They had no choice but to arrest her for her own and everyone else’s safety.”
Tara was later brought to a local police station in the area and issued a caution for the behaviour. She has a history of drug abuse and even appeared on The Jeremy Kyle Show earlier this year to talk about her cocaine addiction.
The socialite was due to fly to Zurich to celebrate her birthday in the luxury ski resort of Klosters when the incident occurred. She later returned to the airport to catch a flight to Zurich the next day.
