Earlier this year - in May - Jodie claimed her mum was "turfed out of hospital" due to coronavirus.

It all began when charity Balls To Cancer posted on Twitter, "We cannot say it enough. THE NHS IS OPEN please do not sit at home with any cancer symptoms, get to speak to your doctor or visit A & E.

"The figures in cancer diagnosis are drastically down. Please remember lives are saved by early detection! Please RT."

However Jodie responded to their tweet and said, "Not quite true. My mum was basically turfed out of hospital and told 'come back in 8 weeks' even though she has the most aggressive growing cancer her consultant had ever seen."

The 41 year old then added, "Thrown out of hospital because of Covid. No treatment. She’s dying at home. No word from hospital."

Our thoughts are with Jodie at this sad time.
