TV presenter Sarah Beeny has been given the all-clear from doctors after being diagnosed with breast cancer.
The 51-year-old, best known for appearing on Help! My House Is Falling Down and Sarah Beeny’s New Life In The Country, revealed how she had been diagnosed with the disease in August last year.
The property expert said she had been given the good news by doctors in the past few days.
She appeared alongside her sons Billy and Rafferty on Lorraine on ITV to share her good news – telling host Christine Lampard how the months since her diagnosis had been a “rollercoaster ride”.
Beeny, who underwent chemotherapy and will have to take medication for the next 10 years, said she would remain “very vigilant”.
When asked how she feels to be given the all-clear, she said: “Weird. It’s good but it’s weird.
“They kind of go, ‘That’s it then, that’s the end of that.’
“And you kind of go, ‘How do you know?’ and they go, ‘We don’t, we just kind of think so.’
“It’s been a weird ride that I wouldn’t wish on anyone else, but I’m glad I did it rather than somebody else,” she said.
“I feel very fortunate that I had the diagnosis that I did, and that I live in 2023 and that I’m the age that I am.
“So many things I’m fortunate for, so I feel very blessed.”

Beeny also thanked staff at the Royal Marden Hospital in London and Yeovil Hospital in Somerset.
She and husband Graham Swift share four sons including Rafferty and Billy, as well as Laurie and Charlie.
The family are due to appear in a new series of Sarah Beeny’s New Life In The Country, filmed before her diagnosis.
She was 10 when her mother died from breast cancer aged 39.
Beeny said of her own diagnosis: “The nurse was so sweet, and they were really nice to me, but I thought, ‘You don’t understand. I have waited 40 years to hear those words.’
“I knew I was going to hear them one day.”
A fortnight ago Beeny posted a smiling selfie on Instagram showing off a new hairstyle, telling her 366,000 followers: “Look, my hair has grown back all platinum! Xxxx #natural blonde.”
In an earlier post, she revealed how she had her hair cut off ahead of her first chemotherapy session, donating her locks to the Official Little Princess Trust, a charity which funds vital research into childhood cancer and provides real hair wigs to children and young people battling the disease.
