“Yes that’s psoriasis on my arm that I thought about smoothing out but decided against it,” alongside an upside down smiley emoji.

In a candid video shared on Instagram Stories back in January, Jess opened up how she is undergoing treatment to help her psoriasis.

She revealed she’s going through a treatment called PUVA, and explained: “It’s prescribed through my doctor and you can get it on the NHS or you can do it privately.

“It’s like a light therapy basically and you have to go for sessions every so often."

Adding that she is hoping the treatment helps ahead of her big day, she said: "If I get married this year, I don't want to be conscious of it all the time."

Jess was set to tie the knot in June and had planned to have a big family wedding in Majorca, but she may be forced to delay her upcoming nuptials as a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

She told Entertainment Daily: "We have had to consider every single option of course so it has definitely been upsetting thinking we may have to cancel or postpone.

"However, we are remaining to keep the faith and hope it goes ahead."
