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

Novak Djokovic breaks science on 'misinformation' surrounding positive Covid test
Novak Djokovic, 34, has had quite the week after he faced deportation by Australian authorities when his visa was cancelled ahead of the Australian Open tournament, where he hoped to defend his title.Since then, rumours of him breaching isolation rules before his arrival in Oz have surfaced, and the World No.1 felt he needed to address them for fear of the backlash "hurting" his family.In a statement posted to Instagram in the early hours of Wednesday morning, the Serbian tennis star, who is unvaccinated, said the "misinformation needs to be corrected", after it came out he and his team had made a "false declaration" on his travel form prior to entering Australia.The statement read: "I want to address the contouring misinformation about my activities and attendance at events in December and the lead up to my positive PCR Covid test result."This is misinformation which needs to be corrected, particularly in the interest of alleviating broader concerns in the community about my presence in Australia and to address matters which are very hurtful and concerning to my family.A post shared by Novak Djokovic (@djokernole)"I want to emphasise that I have tried very hard to ensure the safety of everyone and my compliance with testing obligations."He revealed that he attended a basket-ball game in Belgrade, Serbia, on 14 December, after which it was reported that a number of people had tested positive for the virus.While he had no symptoms himself, he took a rapid antigen test on 16 December that came back negative but also took a PCR test the same day in an "abundance of caution"."The next day I attended a tennis event in Belgrade to present awards to children and took another rapid antigen test before going to the event, and it

Emmerdale's Charley Webb left 'slightly furious' after Covid delays her plans
Emmerdale star was not happy about it either."The Christmas nail are here to stay for another week due to my lovely nail technician having to isolate," she wrote."I'm slightly furious that I can't change them/still loving being Christmassy."It's been quite a start to the new year for Charley, who confirmed her departure from the ITV soap last week.During a Q&A session with fans last week, the Bury-born actress hinted that her reason for stepping away from her role as Debbie was partly to spend more time with her family.After an incredible 19 years on the soap, the mother-of-three indicated that quality time with her children is how she plans to spend her new year."This is always my most asked question but I've never answered it before because I've never wanted to make a big deal of it," she explained on top of a family photo."I left to have Ace 2 years ago," I went back at the end of last year for 10 weeks to complete a storyline."She added: "So, I guess officially it's been a year."Charley had also answered a question from a fan wondering if she's still planning on having more children with her husband, fellow Emmerdale star Matthew Wolfenden.The couple is already parents to sons Buster, 11, Bowie, six, and Ace, three."Are you going to have any more bubbas? Xx," the curious fan asked.Charley responded, expressing that she wasn't done expanding her family just yet, adding that she'd been feeling rather "broody" lately."People say you know when you're done having babies," she expressed."I don't feel that way.
