Viewers stunned by cancer survivor's incredible 10 Years Younger in 10 Days transformation

The mum-of-one was keen to get her confidence back

A mum-of-one who previously battled cancer left fans stunned after sharing her incredible transformation on Channel 5’s 10 Years Younger in 10 Days.

Lyndsey told viewers she was hoping to reinvent herself following her bowel cancer diagnosis in 2014, revealing how she "plummeted" after having a tumour removed.

And while the hairdresser may be just 51, the public weren't as convinced - with some guessing she was as old as 63.

She said: "I started to feel poorly about 10 years ago and then it got to June 14 and that’s when I was diagnosed with cancer.

"When they removed the tumour I did plummet because I wasn’t coping well at all.

"I've aged so much and I need help to get my confidence back."

Despite the public's opinion, Lyndsey admitted she wasn't surprised, saying: "I do feel and look older than that."

Nevertheless, a team of professionals soon helped out as Lyndsey was filmed undergoing botox and facial filler treatment for her deep-set lines and winkles.

The mum-of-one also transformed her wardrobe - opting for sparkly wrap dress and heels over her usual t-shirt and jeans.

Lyndsey later went on the explain how her previous bad diet led to her teeth to become damaged, while chemotherapy treatment resulted in six of them to fall out.

Fortunately she was sent to a top dentist and denture specialist as part of her transformation, where she was fitted with top-of-the-line veneers.

"I'm smiling without my hand in front of my face," she gleamed. "It’s just fantastic."

Soon after her unveil, presenter Cherry Healey claimed the make-over was the "most amazing transformation I've ever seen."

And as Lyndsey was reunited with her family, including her young daughter, she explained how the transformation had left her feeling like her old self - five years on from her cancer diagnosis.

"I really feel like I've found myself again, it's how I felt 10 years ago," she admitted.
