Victoria Derbyshire diagnosed with cancer

Former 5 live presenter Victoria Derbyshire has disclosed she has been diagnosed with breast cancer.

The BBC television host announced on Twitter she would be having a mastectomy in a few weeks, and that family, friends, work & NHS staff ‘are being brilliant’.

Victoria also said she will be doing the (TV) programme as much as possible during treatment in the months ahead. ‘Victoria Derbyshire’ – the daily news and current affairs programme is broadcast each weekday morning on BBC Two and BBC News. Victoria missed a few shows in recent weeks, saying she’s been taking some time off in the summer school holidays to spend time with her children.

Friends and colleagues have wished her well via Twitter and Facebook since Victoria made the announcement around 7:30pm Wednesday, and all the team here at RadioToday wish Victoria a speedy recovery.

Victoria was at 5 live for 16 years before leaving last September to take up “a brilliant opportunity too good to turn down” on television.
