BBC newsreader George Alagiah reveals his cancer has returned

The newsreader George Alagiah, the BBC’s highest-paid star from a minority ethnic background, is to undergo further treatment for cancer after the disease returned.

The 62-year-old presenter of the BBC News at Six was previously diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2014, which later spread to his liver and lymph nodes.

He returned to work in November 2015 after being cleared of the disease following extensive treatment. But in a statement Alagiah’s agent, Mary Greenham, said the disease had recurred. She said Alagiah, a father of two, was in discussions with doctors about options for treatment.

Alagiah spoke of his determination to fight the disease for a second time. “My brilliant doctors are determined to get me back to a disease-free state and I know they have the skill to do just that,” he said.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
