First Dates star Fred Sirieix has shared a snap from a hospital bed alongside a candid health update.
The 51-year-old underwent two procedures, admitting he worried they would be stressful and invasive.
Fred was advised to get a gastroscopy and colonoscopy after he discovered he had an iron deficiency.
The French TV star explained: ‘A while back I had a routine blood test which came back with a slight deficiency in iron. This needed investigating. And so I was booked for a gastrocopy & colonoscopy.
‘To be honest the mere thought of these procedures really stressed me out. What might be found? Not only that but these are invasive procedures.’
Fred undertook advice about whether or not to be sedated for the procedures from his brother, a doctor, and an Oxford Gastroenterologist consultant.
Sharing his concerns, he said: ‘Prior to the procedures I was debating what to do. To sedate or not to sedate? Is it needed?
‘Would I feel unbearable pain if I did not have it? Or would the pain actually come from the fear and anxiety associated with such procedures?https://www.instagram.com/p/CxyDJCgI9mf/?img_index=1
‘You see I do not believe nor want to take drugs I do not need.
‘I’m busy and can’t afford to take 24 hours off just because I’m scared of a simple tube and camera going from my mouth to my stomach and another going from my bum to the end of my colon.
‘Still. No point to be a hero for nothing.’
With their advice, Fred decided to not be sedated, and went on: ‘The gastrocopy is the most unpleasant of the two because it makes you gag. Basically it is awful.
‘However it just lasts 5 minutes. Pain wise I’ve had much worse. Anyone could take it.Fred was praised for the candid health update (Picture: Joe Maher/WireImage)
‘The colonoscopy is easy peasy in contrast. A bit weird I must admit because it is up your bum but we all have one and c’est la vie.
‘However it is NOT painful. It lasts about 20/30 minutes.’
Fred went on to joke that his doctor and medical team wanted to know about his co-star Gino D’Acampo, before confirming that now, after the procedures he was on his way home.
He concluded: ‘I’m now in a taxi on my way home eating my favourite @lu.ukandi biscuits. Really looking forward to my Indian take away later on from @indianessenceak courtesy of my dear friend @chefatulkochhar That and a nice bottle of wine ???? to celebrate ????????????’Fred admitted he was looking ‘sheepish’ before the procedures (Picture: Gareth Cattermole/Getty Images)
As he was showered with support in the comments, Fred updated: ‘Ps the first pic was taken after the back to back procedures. I was looking a little more sheepish before.’
This Morning star Dr Zoe Williams commented: ‘You’re a braver person than me. I had sedation for both, but still went home an hour later. But respect your decision process.’

‘Thanks for sharing your experience Fred, you probably saved someone from feeling unnecessarily scared of the procedure,’ someone else said.
