Whilst many were wowed by her impressive abs, several followers were concerned by a noticeable lump in her armpit, commenting: ‘Hey ily and I was just wondering is your arm okay there seems to be a lump?; ‘You have a lump in your underarm xx’.
Kym had captioned the image: ‘5k run in the park followed by a cheeky kettle bell session! Bring on summer fitness!!!’
However, just a few days later, she updated the caption to add: ‘Just so you guys know….after the recent photo and people’s concerns over the ‘lump’ in my armpit, I went and had it checked anyway.
‘It’s all good guys and is just a bit of inflammation to a muscle. Thank you all for your concern xxx’.

The former Hear’Say star who is mum to Emilie, 23, David, 24, with ex Dave Cunliffe and daughter Polly, nine, with former husband Jamie Lomas, went on to detail the ordeal in her OK! column.
She explained: ‘I noticed the lump for a while and assumed it was nothing, but it had been playing on my mind and I knew I had to get it sorted.’
Revealing that her doctor was kitted out in full PPE due the coronavirus pandemic, she continued: ‘I was lucky to get a doctor’s appointment straight away and went to a clinic for an ultrasound.
‘I am so grateful to everyone who reached out and urged me to get it looked at. It could have been something more serious, so thank goodness people online are looking out for each other.’

Lumps under the armpit should always be checked out as they could be a symptom of breast cancer, as well as blocked hair follicles, swollen breast tissue or swollen lymph glands.
The usual first symptom of breast cancer is a painless lump in the breast, although most lumps are not cancerous and are fluid filled cysts, which are benign.
The first place that breast cancer usually spreads to is the lymph nodes in the armpit.
If this occurs you will develop a swelling or lump in an armpit.

Lumps can appear anywhere on your body, and whilst most lumps are harmless the NHS state it is important to see your GP if you’re worried or the lump is still there after two weeks.
Kym has been putting on a brave face as she’s returned to work following the death of her uncle George.
She said George, the husband of her mother’s sister, caught coronavirus in hospital and his family was unable to visit him during his final days.

The musician paid tribute to her ‘amazing’ uncle in her OK! magazine column, hailing him as the ‘life and soul of any party’.
She said: ‘You hear about people losing their loved ones during this time and people passing away alone in hospitals and only a few people attending their funerals. But when it happens to you and your family, it really brings this whole thing home.
‘It breaks my heart to think of him being alone in that hospital.’
‘My uncle George was an amazing man and I have so many happy memories of him. He was a great guy and the life and soul of any party. Sleep tight uncle George.’
Kym said George had been in a care home before he fell ill and was taken to hospital, meaning his children hadn’t been able to see him for ‘so long’ before he passed away.
Family members sent him video messages which were played to George by nurses before he died, which she hopes provided him with ‘some comfort’ in his final days.
