BBC's Bill Turnbull talks cancer battle as he leaves This Morning for chemo

This Morning ‘s Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield spoke to BBC Breakfast ‘s Bill Turnbull as he opened up on battling prostate cancer.

Bill told them that he is little pain, saying to the pair: “I’m feeling remarkably well diagnosed with advanced diagnosed coming up on second anniversary.

“No pain, no discomfort, I’ve changed the way I eat, I’ve changed the way I live.”

He added: “I do feel physically a lot better – psychologically a little different as you have ups and downs,” as he said the chemotherapy made him cry regularly.

Bill also told the pair that he was heading for more treatment at Royal Marsden straight after his TV appearance, and said: “We do have an attitude where we fix the problem with surgery.

“At the same time, I feel maybe we can try and see ourselves from within – this illness is a part of me, I’m not going to try and kill you.”

He also said that he didn’t like to think of it as a cancer battle, and said he wanted to have a positive mindset about it.

Bill continued: “I think it’s all about the moment you wake up and try and think positively.

“This is all part of nature – there’s still a beauty to it.

“It’s a fantastic world and you are part of that – let’s play our part.”
