A mother of two children diagnosed with terminal cancer warned of the dangers of sun worship when she claimed that Love had a "sunbathing craze" across the UK.
38-year-old Shellie Clark was diagnosed with terminal skin cancer five months ago, though she never intentionally tanned in the sun.
Since then she is warning young fans of the popular ITV2 show.
Shellie fears that the rising trend could increase the number of skin cancers, especially among the younger generation.
This happened after Islander Amy Hart announced on ITV's Loose Women that she and other contestants refused to wear sunscreen, even though producers urged them to stay protected.
"The focus is on wanting to turn brown. There is also the pressure on social media to be body-conscious. I can imagine that skin cancer will rise sharply over the next few years, and that's worrying.
Former bar manager Shellie added, "I have never worshiped the sun. I have always been hushed up. I have such a pale skin and knew from a young age that I only burned myself.
"I have never tanned myself, so I've never cared for it can happen to me who literally remained in secret, then it can affect anyone, especially the younger generation. "
Former Islander Amy told Loose Women last month," We get sunscreen, some of the girls are pulling & # 39; I do not think they'll tan with sunscreen, so use moisturizer.
"It's okay to have a tan now, but what about skin cancer, and they were all, I'll think about that later." 19659002] The brave Shellie from Maidenhead, Berks, originally had only three months to live because her skin cancer had affected the rest of her body.
She had discovered a mole on her calf that had changed but did not know how important it was to examine him allow. Shellie, who also had a second job as head of self-value groups for disadvantaged children, also ignored other warning signs that she was feeling unwell.
These included greasy lumps, a constant cold, difficulty climbing stairs, and the inability to finish them
"When I was told it was a melanoma, I had to search for the name," she added.
"I did not know anything about it, I assumed that all the signs on your skin and on your skin were not in your body."
She now wants to help raise awareness of the dangers of skin cancer to prevent other families from going through what their family is.
"Everyone has moles, I did not have any education, and I was not informed enough about the changes.
" I really want to influence that.
"If I had known this little information, it could have been 100 percent curable."
Unfortunately, for Shellie, her cancer had spread from her s is related to her ovaries, adrenals, soft tissues, lymph nodes, lungs, chest wall, both breasts, cervical and then her brain.
Shellie – who is undergoing immunotherapy – said she tries to stay positive and gets strength from her children.
Although she found her new partner, James, 36, seven years ago, she said that her boys had to grow up without a father for their early childhood after their birth father left her.
She's had Joshua's birthday in May and James's last month, which she did not believe would see him.
Doctors were stunned by their longer lives than expected and said they could "break the mold" by beating cancer by their mindset.
