'I look a bit like Matt Lucas', says Louise McSharry as her brave cancer battle continues
2fm's Louise McSharry claims she looks like comic Matt Lucas after losing her hair, eyebrows and eyelashes from chemotheraphy.
The 31-year-old has taken leave of absence from Montrose after she was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in August of last year.
But today - less than two weeks after she returned to the airwaves for a slot on New Year's Day - bravely tweeted a photograph of herself.
"I think I have reached peak cancer appearance. Baldy, no eyebrows, no eyelashes, look a bit like Matt Lucas. Yep," she wrote.

The British comedian, screenwriter, actor and singer is best known for his work with David Walliams in the television show Little Britain.
Louise previously said there is still no guarantee her slot will still be available when she is recovered and returns to RTE.
But she admitted her hope for 2015 is to become "really, truly healthy and strong".
"I hope to have an incredible weekend with friends and family at my wedding in August," she said over the new year.
"I'm also hoping to really seize every opportunity that presents itself in terms of my work. I can't remember ever being as excited for a new year as I am now."
