Aimee Willett decided to go through the screening test after becoming eligible on turning 25 years old, the age at which NHS screening starts, and was told the devastating news, with the doctors adding that the cancer had spread to other parts of the body and they would not be able to operate.

While she has undergone surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, Ms Willett has been told that she may not survive to see 2016.

"I am bitter about it and I would like to see the age lowered. I think 25 is too old - especially if a girl has had a child at a young age. The biggest thing for me now is for people to be more aware. If you experience anything that's not normal, go to your doctor and get it checked out and when you get a letter asking you to go for a smear test make an appointment straight away and keep it. I always thought it would never happen to me because I was young, but cancer doesn't pick an age group", she said.
