Love Island’s Demi Jones is determined to stay “positive” as she continues to battle thyroid cancer.

The 23 year old beauty shared an update on her progress with listeners on Capital XTRA.

She told radio presenters she is due to receive more treatment in September but won’t find out if she’s cancer-free until the end of this year.

Despite her ongoing struggle, the brave reality star insisted she’s “staying super positive” after having two surgeries to try and remove all the cancer cells.

Asked how she is managing it, Demi replied: “Do you know what, I feel like if I didn't I would make myself ill.

“You've got to be positive-minded and you've got to be strong-minded to get yourself through it, otherwise you just wouldn't.

“You'd make yourself depressed,” the star went on.

"So I'm staying super positive and I've got some more treatment in September coming up and then hopefully by the end of the year I'll find out if I'm cancer-free.”

The brand ambassador and social media influencer admitted one of the hardest aspects of her treatment was having two operations really close together.

“But I'm staying positive. I've had my two surgeries,” she told presenter Will Njobvu. “I feel like that's the worst thing to go through, two surgeries in six weeks.

“But I've bounced back pretty quick and it's just nice to be out with my friends.”

Bringing back the positivity to the conversation, Demi added she’s excited for the remaining coronavirus restrictions to lift this month.

“Bring on the 19th July, I'm ready to dance and have fun again!” she giggled.

The star has also been detailing her treatment on her Instagram page, as she shared an image of her post-surgery recovering in bed.

“I’ve just woke up. Pain is so much worse this time,” she told her 1.2million followers.

“I’ve been asleep for hours nurses struggled to wake me up. Thank you for everyone’s kind messages,” Demi added.

Demi recently revealed the news she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer after she had a lump removed form her neck.
