Jess, who is the sister of Mark Wright who also appeared alongside Jess in TOWIE, has been suffering from psoriasis for more than a year.

However, this has now made her condition worse than what it was before.

Taking to social media, Jess wrote: "Apologies for my absence on discussing my ongoing battle with psoriasis, however here it is.

"In November I went to a specialist and I was put on a form of medication in the hope that it would stop it in its tracks, calm it down and then when I came off the meds after around a year, it wouldn't be as aggressive."

She continued: "This medication cleared nearly all my psoriasis which was wonderful for a little while, however side effects of the meds started to creep in and become more evident which didn't make me feel great and then when I tried lowering the dose, the psoriasis started to come back with a vengence."

She then added: "It's actually, I'd say on a par with how it was before, if not worse. And it's actually really sore. So frustrating.

"I'm posting this because so many of you have messaged me asking how its going and I've not been updating you so here it is."

She went on to write: "Sorry I don't have better news and a miracle cure for you all, I feel your frustration guys. Repeat after me 'F*** you psoriasis."

After the post, the reality TV personality's fans were on hand to show their support.

One wrote: "I feel your pain! I've not had it since I was little and suddenly at 44 it's popped up all over my face, scalp and arms."

While another added: "It''s been ruining my life now for nearly 30 years!"
