Caprice breaks down in tears as she discusses brain tumour diagonsis

Caprice talked about her brain tumour diagnosis on Friday's Loose Women

"I had a very, very minor accident," she told the panel. "I started to get these headaches right after doing skeleton training. And then all of a sudden my vision started to go a little, I started to see ten of everything. And that morning we had a live show and the health and safety was really, it's so ironic, because everyone slashes The Jump, but for me, it sorted of saved my life."

"Obviously I started to break down and cry hysterically," she recalled

Elaborating further, Caprice admitted the first thing she thought about were her children. She explained: "Obviously I started to break down and cry hysterically… and I said, 'Am I going to die?' My children [instantly went through my head]. It's terrifying - and I’m relatively healthy and I've never done drugs, I've lived a pretty healthy life.

"I couldn't believe what they were telling me. It's so weird how you act in a situation like this and sometimes it's not rational, and for me, I just wanted to be strong for my kids because they're so young, they're three, and I wanted to be strong for my partner." The surgeons managed to remove the tumour successfully, with the star adding: "I just remember being in bed praying to my dad in heaven, 'Please I just want to wake up and I want to be OK'. And it was the first time it really hit me. When something like this happens you’re just in so much shock."
