Anne Diamond has been diagnosed with breast cancer.

The 68-year-old TV star has revealed that she was actually diagnosed with cancer on the same day she received an OBE.

Speaking to GB News, Anna shared: "You're often taught that if something good happens to you, something bad happens, to slap you back."

Anne co-hosts the weekend breakfast show on GB News, and although her cancer battle is not over yet, she's already planning to make a return to the channel.

The veteran broadcaster - who previously hosted 'Good Morning Britain' for TV-am - shared: "Five months later, I am still not at the end of that journey, but I am well enough to return to work."

Anne admitted that her treatment has been "very hard".

The TV star added that she has "empathy" for anyone who is going through a similar experience.

She explained: "I don’t have any advice for people because I’m still going through it. I'm well enough to return to work but I had the full mastectomy.

"This is the first time I’ve talked about it so it’s quite difficult. The first operation I had was nine hours long. I don’t remember it, I was in and out.

"It was nine hours of removal and rebuild, that took a long time to get over. I then had a lumpectomy just to make sure they can trace the travel if the cancer has at all. Luckily I don’t think they did [track any].

"I’ve also had a lot of radiotherapy, which I found very hard. It has been a journey.

"I am not pretending for a minute I am extraordinary because I am fully aware that a quarter of women in this country are going through what I’ve just gone through and I don’t have any advice to give, I just have empathy."
