“I had a double mastectomy on Thursday because I’m a BRCA1 gene carrier, so I have the BRCA1 gene mutation. It means I have quite a high percentage, like an 85 per cent chance of developing breast cancer,” she said in the video, which you can see above.

“My mum got breast cancer for the first time at 36, so really high chance of getting it while I’m still quite young.”

The operation comes just two weeks after the dramatic blocks 2022 auctions, where Tom and Sarah-Jane’s house sold for $4,100,000.99.

“Even if we walked away with nothing we had the experience of a lifetime and something we can tell our grandkids about! Are we disappointed sure but nothing is ever guaranteed and at this point I think we’ll be fully over it by Tuesday. There’s bigger issues in the world. Love to you all.”
