Sophie Monk Shocks Fans With Hospital Video

Posting on Monday night from hospital, Sophie Monk revealed her diagnosis via Instagram Story.

Laying in a hospital bed, wearing an oxygen mask and being attended to by a doctor -- the Love Island host posted two videos, the first revealing her diagnosis.

"So many women live not knowing they have endometriosis," the caption on her story read. "If you have annoying cycles. You should ask your dr."
