BBC’s Jeremy Bowen gives health update 3 years on from cancer diagnosis

BBC's Middle East editor once described it as "scarier than being bombed", but having been in remission for three years post-surgery, he has a new outlook.In a new interview, the journalist opened up on his diagnosis while stating very clearly he isn't packing in his job any time soon."Anyone who wants to fill my role, I have to disappoint them and say I’m trying to keep going," he laughed."I’m only 61 and, as you get older, you tend to think that experience counts for more.

Funny that."But his new-found confidence came after he was hit with the news no-one wants to hear."It was a serious tumour,” Jeremy recalled."I had a lot of chemotherapy and I’ve been clear since my surgery."He went on to reveal he has regular check-ups every six months at the Royal Marsden Hospital.Jeremy added: "I’m absolutely determined to look on the bright side."I have been in violent places where it doesn’t take much and you’re dead, and that feeling has been deepened by having had cancer."You’re bumbling along with your life and then suddenly a doctor’s telling you you’ve got some really serious illness," he told Radio Times.Jeremy developed "funny pains" in his legs and back while in Iraq in 2018 but had none of the typical symptoms of the disease.Usual symptoms include bloody stools and bloating after eating, according to the NHS.In October 2019, doctors found a lump during a colonoscopy.The year of receiving the life-changing health news, the journalist urged others to get tested to avoid "dying of embarrassment".He told the NHS expo conference in Manchester: "In 1995 I remember lying in the snow in Grozny in Chechnya wearing my flak jacket and helmet."The Russians were bombing the place and buildings were on fire and those planes were

The show sees Kelvin, 38, up root his family from their urban home in Oldham, Greater Manchester, and trade it in for a chance to start up their own farm in the Peak District. Throughout the first episode, both Kelvin and his wife Liz Fletcher admitted they felt “overwhelmed” by the amount of work there was to do, given that neither actor has any previous farming experience. Towards the end of the first episode, Kelvin had to get his hands dirty when he was tasked with deworming a flock of sheep by his farm-savvy neighbour Gilly.  Gilly seemed bemused by Kelvin’s reluctance to get stuck in, as he found that one of the sheep’s feet was rotten. The former Strictly champion then appeared horrified as Gilly asked him to remove maggots from the sheep’s foot. The actor looked disgusted as he went in for a first try, before saying: “I can’t do that. It’s full of blood and everything.”As he asked Gilly to take over, Liz pointed out Kelvin would have to learn to deal with the less attractive parts of farm life. She remarked: “He is very squeamish.

Ralf Little dismisses ‘horrible’ UK life after star bids farewell to Death in Paradise set
Death in Paradise star Ralf Little has relished the opportunity to work on location on the sunshine island of Guadeloupe, but some might say a little too much, as he ended up reluctant to arrive back home. He shared his disappointment after recently braving bitterly cold weather on British soil.Clearly substituting palm trees for Christmas trees amid dramatically shrinking temperatures was not for Ralf."It’s horrible!" he gasped, following his return trip to reunite with family over the Christmas period."I hate to say this, but I’m over it."Carols and turkey roast dinners did little to warm Ralf's spirits about being in the UK and instead, he reminisced about his working life in the sun.He confessed: "I’m from Manchester so grew up in the cold, wet and drizzle."I was back two days and was like, 'This sucks.'"I’ve been away for 18 months and not been cold!"He added to the Mirror of his winter ordeal: "As I was flying into Heathrow I looked out the window and as far as I could see, stretching out across the horizon, was thick cloud."Though his comments were partly made in jest, it's certainly true that Ralf understandably has a passion for the paradise island's climate.The average temperature in Guadeloupe in January is a scorching 29 degrees Celsius - a far cry from the UK's seven degrees Celsius.Despite suddenly losing three quarters of the heat level he'd become accustomed to, Ralf consoled himself with memories of his time filming.Dubbing his acting work on Death In Paradise the "best job on TV", he added: "Not just in terms of location, because Guadeloupe is wonderful.
