When was Jay Aston diagnosed with mouth cancer?

Meanwhile, back in 2018, Jay was diagnosed with mouth cancer after noticing a white patch on her tongue.

Thankfully, the singer has since been given the all-clear.

At the time, Jay went through a gruelling seven hour operation to remove a chunk of her tongue.

Opening up on Loose Women, she previously shared: “I had to have part of my leg taken off and placed on my neck so they could rebuild my tongue.”

She continued: “Basically, my tongue is sewn down to the bottom of my mouth so I’ve only got one working side.

“It was very painful to smile for a while. I guess it’s like scar tissue.”
