Dame Esther Rantzen has said travelling to Dignitas in Switzerland is “definitely on her agenda” as MPs are to debate assisted dying on Monday, 29 April.

The broadcaster, 83, backed a petition for a debate that gained more than 200,000 signatures after she was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer.

“The cancer has spread. I know my time is very limited,” Dame Esther told BBC Radio 4.
