Mark Wright says he feels “so, so lucky” after doctors declared him cancer-free.

The former TOWIE star posted a video on Instagram, saying: “I got the news the other day that it is all clear.”

Mark, 34, who has spent the past two weeks recovering from the removal of a tumour in his armpit, added: “It’s cancer free. It’s in the past. We move on.

“This is the first longish walk I have been on since the operation so the first bit of exercise I have been able to do and honestly already my head is clear.”

He added: “I’ve had the worry and the anxiety of what this could have been and leaving me feeling a little bit low and not very motivated.”

Mark, who is married to ­former Corrie actress Michelle Keegan, also 34, said the tumour had been sent off for further ­testing before doctors gave him the all-clear.

He said: “January 1, I will be recovered from this fully.

“I’m still a little bit sore but I will be back in the game.’’

Earlier this month, the former Strictly star shared the "tough" update with his online followers.

Mark wrote: "Ok, it’s been a tough call whether or not to speak about this."

Next to a shirtless snap in which he put his hand behind his head, he went on: "One part of me wants to keep something like this private and the other part is thinking, if I can help/potentially save one person, well… this is the right thing to do.

"So here goes. I discovered a lump in my breast/armpit area. Not very big, but enough to cause concern and to be cautious enough to get it checked.

"I saw a doctor who passed it on as 'a fatty lump that doesn’t need any treatment' so I just left it."

However he wasn't happy with that and went back for more checks, with a specialist making the decision to remove it.
