Loose Women star breaks down in tears as she shares heartbreaking health update

Loose Women: Kéllé Bryan emotionally discusses her health

Loose Women star Kelle Bryan broke down in tears on Monday’s episode as she discussed her health after having chemotheraphy. The 48-year-old has had to undergo chemotherapy infusions every six months after being diagnosed with lupus in 2000 and consequently suffering from a stroke.

Kelle was joined by her co-stars Ruth Langsford, Coleen Nolan and Brenda Edwards as the ladies discussed chemotherapy and the effect it’s had on them. Sharing her own story, the Eternal star began speaking but became overcome with emotion as she took a moment to compose herself, with Brenda, 54, comforting her.

After taking a second, Kelle cleared her throat as the live audience gave her a round of applause to encourage her. She explained: “It’s about your children because you know as I do that, it means I can have the life that I have with my children.

“So for that eight hours in the chair, I know I can then live a relatively happy, normal life with my children. I can still do the things that I’ve always wanted to do with them and live the life I’ve always wanted to live with them.”

“So for me it’s eight hours versus that, so for me it’s a no-brainer to make that decision and it’s not easy, not by any means is it easy,” she expressed.

The ITV star opened up on World Lupus Day in 2021 about her journey with the autoimmune condition which led to her experiencing a stroke.

Lupus is a condition that affects the immune system and causes the body to attack its own healthy cells, it can cause problems with the skin, joints, kidneys and other organs.

Speaking previously on the show about her condition leading her to having a stroke, the singer said: “I had cerebral lupus…I lost the ability to speak, to read, to write and [my] movement and coordination.

“I’m diagnosed with lupus but the lupus was on my brain, which means I had cerebral lupus, I then had a stroke. I lost three days of my life where I don’t remember anything at all.”
