The 40-year-old author and podcaster was was officially made a dame earlier this week for her inspirational campaigning urging others to keep a lookout for symptoms of bowel cancer following after she was diagnosed with the disease in 2016.
In an emotional Instagram post, she said: ‘I don’t even know where to start with the overwhelming tears getting in the way.
‘I’m humbled and blown away that 5 years of talking about poo can lead to a Dame hood! I feel honoured and shocked that I even got considered.’
The mum-of-two has now raised over £4 million for Cancer Research through her record-breaking Bowelbabe Fund initiative, and she’s delighted with the way people have backed her campaign.
She continued: ‘I can simply only give thanks for the wonderful people in the world and say the most heartfelt thank you for your unconditional support not just now but over the years.’
