Bill Turnbull has said he is “truly blessed” to have the loving support of his wife, amid his prostate cancer diagnosis. The former BBC Breakfast presenter and Sarah McCombie, known as Sesi, tied the knot in 1988 and have been married for 33 years next month.

He has now said that sometimes he feels like giving up but his wife is always there to help remind him of better days.

“Some days, I think, ‘I don’t want to do this anymore’.

“On those bad days, she reminds me things will get better,” Bill has said, while raising awareness for the Prostate Cancer UK.

“Bill Turnbull, the face of our appeal, on how his wife Sesi has supported him through prostate cancer,” a tweet from the charity’s official Twitter account continued.

Bill then shared the post on his own account, in view of his 100,800 followers.

“It’s true,” he added.

“She does. And I am truly blessed,” the TV star gushed.

Bill, who was diagnosed with prostate cancer in November 2017, is calling for funds to launch a screening programme in order to diagnose the disease early.

Many took to the comments section of the post, which included a picture of the couple, to share their thoughts.

“Oh bless her Bill. She looks to me like a really lovely lady and adoring wife. What a super couple. So happy.

“You are an inspiration, carrying on as if none of this is happening. I listen to you on Classic FM and you’re so cheerful.

“Thank you for looking after him so well Mrs T,” one radio listener wrote online.

“So nice to see your face,” another person added.

“Sending love and good wishes to you both,” a third social media user added.

In the accompanying picture, the couple smile for the camera on a past family holiday.

Bill and Sarah are parents to three grown up children, Henry, 32, Will, 31, and Flora, 29.

The Prostate Cancer UK website states that last year almost 12,000 men lost their lives to the disease, however an early diagnosis can greatly improve the chances of survival.

A new test, which can differentiate between low-risk cancer and cases which need urgent treatment, could make all the difference.

“Right now, with no screening programme, a diagnosis of advanced prostate cancer could happen to any man,” Bill said.

“Funding research is an opportunity to lower the odds of that happening. Together we can make a difference,” he added.
