Danielle Armstrong says she had "abnormal" and "precancerous" cells removed after recently getting her smear test results back.

The former TOWIE star, 33, took to her Instagram to tell her 1.3million fans she had a colposcopy – a simple procedure that looks at the cervix – done on Thursday after nurses found some abnormal cells following her routine smear test.

She explained that during the colposcopy, nurses decided to use a "loop excision", which she described as using an electrical current to cut away the abnormal cells.

The TV star added that she had the abnormal cells removed as they were "precancerous" and means it can prevent them progressing to cancer in the future.

But the main message mum-of-one Danielle was trying to tell her followers is to book in for their smear test and to get checked, saying: "It can prevent cancer and save your life."

Alongside a photo of herself, Danielle said in the caption: "Is it uncomfortable… YES. Is their bleeding.. YES (a little). Can it prevent cancer & save your life. YES!!!

"I just want to share this post with you all because I know 90% of my followers are female and between 25-49. So please ladies if you have still got to book your Smear Test BOOK IT TODAY."
