Who is Abi Phillips?

Abi Phillips, the Hollyoaks actress, has revealed that she has thyroid cancer. The 28-year-old actress plays Liberty Savage in the Channel 4 serial. After noticing two lumps in her neck and getting them tested, she disclosed her news on Instagram. She shared the heartbreaking news on social media.

“So, I took these pictures before my scans and after my biopsy having a good old laugh about how ridiculously dressed up I looked in the hospital before a gig, not expecting for one moment to get the news that I did two weeks later.”

“I’d previously been sent away from the doctors after having found two lumps in my neck, they’d passed it off and said I was ‘young’ and it wouldn’t be anything and I was ‘probably getting over a cold’ or my body was ‘fighting something off’.
