Kate Ford reveals she suffers from endometriosis

Kate Ford, who plays Tracy Barlow in Coronation Street, has revealed that she suffers from endometriosis.

Kate tweeted in response to a twitter statement from US singer Halsey, who is currently recovering from "multiple surgeries" as a result of the illness.

Kate added to her tweet:  "I suffer from this it's not easy."

Endometriosis is a condition where tissue that behaves like the lining of the womb (the endometrium) is found outside the womb. The condition is estimated to affect around 2 million women in the UK.

Indeed. Maybe to make Tracy more sympathetic to the folk who can't distinguish between the actors and their characters?

Very brave of Kate to go public with this illness. It could help others in some way. I wish her all the best in dealing with it.
