Steph McGovern has cervical smear test live on TV in bid to raise cancer awareness

TV presenter Steph McGovern has undergone a cervical smear test on live television, in a bid to reduce fear of the procedure.

The 38-year-old underwent the quick and simple screening of her cervix on her Channel 4 show Steph's Packed Lunch as part of a campaign to combat cervical cancer, with smear tests at an all time low during the coronavirus pandemic.

McGovern told viewers: "There are a lot women who struggle with going to their smear test because they think it's going to be awful and embarrassing, so we decided to show you what actually happens.
