BBC News reports Bill Turnbull has Prostate Cancer
Wednesday, 7th March 2018
Former BBC Breakfast presenter Bill Turnbull has revealed he has been diagnosed with prostate cancer.
The 62-year-old said it was found in November and cancer has spread to his legs, hips, pelvis and ribs.
Turnbull told the Radio Times he wanted to encourage people to get tested, saying: "Maybe if I'd got it earlier and stopped it at the prostate, I'd be in a much better state."
He said he had put long-term aches and pains down to "old age".
The interview was conducted by Sian Williams, Turnbull's former colleague on the Breakfast sofa, who had a double mastectomy for breast cancer in 2014.
Turnbull left the BBC in 2016 and now hosts a show on Classic FM. His former BBC colleagues sent him best wishes following his announcement.
