Stars and colleagues have offered support and well wishes to Bill Turnbull, after the TV personality revealed he’d been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Having admitted to ignoring the symptoms, Turnbull, 62, confirmed that it was incurable after it spread from his prostate to his legs, hips, pelvis, and ribs.


An outpouring of sympathy and support made itself known on Twitter, from fans of his time on BBC Breakfast, to former colleagues, to others who work in the television industry.

BBC’s Jeremy Vine offered his friend ‘all the very best’.


To which singer Beverley Knight said what a ‘wonderful, selfless, warm caring man’ he is.


Good Morning Britain’s Susanna Reid and former BBC Breakfast co-host offered her best wishes to Bill.

Sara Cox encouraged men to keep an eye out for symptoms.

And Davina McCall also emphasised the need to get checked out by your doctor.


Just this morning Piers Morgan shared his encounter with a cancer scare, saying that he addressed the problem as soon as he noticed something was potentially wrong.

Sky Sports’ Simon Thomas recently spoke up about his personal devastation and how he’s moving on with his son, after his wife died suddenly of acute myeloid leukaemia.

And only last month it was made known that Stephen Fry was battling prostate cancer and vowed to raise awareness of the disease.
