Love Island’s Liberty Poole shares a ‘helpful guide’ for checks ahead of Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Liberty Poole is helping women check their breasts

Love Island’s Liberty Poole has “created a helpful guide” for ladies to check their bodies, ahead of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The 23-year-old from Birmingham has partnered with breast cancer awareness charity CoppaFeel and Skinny Tan to “encourage” women to make boob checks part of their regular tanning routine.

She calls the campaign T*ts and Tanning Thursdays, telling her 1.5 million Instagram followers “apply your tan, and have a feel of your tits while you’re in the area”.

The reality star has released a video to support the campaign, she says: “Miss Poole here today and I’m here to talk about the importance of regularly checking your boobs.

“Do you know that one in seven women will be affected by breast cancer in their lifetime, and not enough of you are checking your boobs regularly.

“Do you know what I think is a good habit to get into, checking your boobs everytime you tan.”

The islander then shares her breast checking tips, demonstrating on oranges, peaches and cherry bakewells.

She says: “So you’ll want to focus on the area from your armpit, across and underneath your boobs, and all the way up to your collarbone.

“Using a mirror, look for any changes in shape, outline or size. Take note for any changes in skin, such as puckering or dimpling.

“Try looking with your arms both raised and then down by your side. Using your hands, feel around for any lumps, bumps or skin thickening.

“Pay attention to your nipples, and make sure they haven’t changed shape or direction and that there is no unusual discharge.”

Liberty ends the video saying: “If you notice anything that doesn’t feel normal to you, monitor it for a week and book an appointment with your doctor to get it checked out.”

She also donated her fee from the paid partnership to CoppaFeel, “to help them continue their amazing work”.
