Nicola McLean wants to tell cancer to 'jog on’

Nicola McLean, 31, was devastated when her mum Margaret, 54, was diagnosed with breast cancer in January 2011.

For the past two years, the reality TV star has supported Margaret through her treatment and recovery.

Nicola, who’s married to footballer Tom Williams, has been inspired by her mum’s illness to join Now‘s Race For Wife running team. She’ll complete the 5k charity event on 22 June in her wedding dress.

‘I love this dress. It’s OTT, but I feel like a princess!’ Nicola tells us.

‘It’s from a designer called My Lady and cost a whopping £10,000.’

Nicola‘s mum Margaret has been in remission since July last year but Nicola has had her own cancer scare.

‘Last year my smear test was abnormal with pre-cancerous cells, so I had laser surgery to remove them,’ she tells us.

‘Then about six months ago I had another abnormal smear with more precancerous cells and I had to have surgery again.

‘Now I have to go back every three months.’
