Former Hollyoaks star Terri Dwyer blames sunbeds for skin cancer
Actress Terri Dwyer has warned against the use of sunbeds and believes her former obsession with tanning gave her cancer.
The 42-year-old star, who found fame playing barmaid Ruth Osborne in Hollyoaks, has spoken frankly about her health ordeal for the first time, which she blames on her extensive sunbed sessions at teenager.
The former Loose Women presenter was terrified her young sons Caiden, nine, and Kylan, five, would be forced to grow up without their mother when doctors diagnosed her with stage two malignant melanoma last year after a routine mole check.
Terri told the Daily Mirror: ‘The doctors cannot be 100 per cent sure but in my case they say it’s highly likely the cancer was caused by my use of sunbeds.’
