Jay had a biopsy in the April before a seven-hour operation to remove 40% of her tongue in the June.

Doctors made a new tongue using her thigh’s tissue and they removed her top teeth as a precaution if she needed chemotherapy.

Medics informed her the cancer was gone just 10 days after the operation.

Last year, Jay told The Belfast Telegraph lockdown has given her time to reflect on her life following her cancer battle.

In turn, the singer said it has allowed her to completely “re-evaluate my life”.

She added: “Surviving an experience like that makes you realise the simple things and pleasures you took for granted.

“We all get so upset about minor things and miss the fact that whatever’s happening, if you’re here it is a good day.”
