I am really pleased to announce that journalist and broadcaster Bill Turnbull is going to feature in the forthcoming bowel cancer charity book. Bill spent 15 years hosting BBC Breakfast and now presents on Classic FM as well as still working for the BBC. I will hopefully get to speak to him about the interview he did a few years ago with Mike Peters of The Alarm, as there is a lot of love out there for Bill from fans of the band.
Bowel cancer is the second highest cancer killer in the UK claiming 16,000 lives each year. Yet if detected early it is very treatable in over 90% of cases. My mother passed away in 2016 following a four year battle with this awful illness. All proceeds raised from sales of the book will be donated to the Beating Bowel Cancer charity.
