Sarah Beeny emotionally receives the all-clear from breast cancer after ‘weird ride’ | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV | Express.co.uk
Sarah Beeny, 51, went through gruelling doses of radiotherapy and chemotherapy, as well as a double mastectomy, after being diagnosed with breast cancer last summer.
Now, doctors have finally confirmed she’s in the clear. However, the Channel 4 star confessed she still feels “weird” as she quizzed how doctors knew her ill health wouldn’t return.
Talking on the Lorraine show earlier, she confessed that coming to the end of her treatment journey was “good but weird”.
“The doctors [say] ‘Oh right, that’s it then, that’s the end of that’ and you’re like, ‘How do you know?'” she confided.
“Then they go: ‘We don’t, but we think so’. It’s an ongoing thing.”
Sarah, who admitted losing her hair had been deeply “traumatic”, added: “I have to take drugs for years and be very vigilant. It’s been a kind of weird ride.”
The TV property expert had lost her mum to breast cancer at the age of just 10 and had been convinced ever since that one day she would contract the deadly disease too.

“I was trying to work out why losing your hair is so traumatic, because it shouldn’t be,” she mused.
Sarah courageously opted to shave her head entirely using her dog’s clippers to avoid seeing it gradually fall out – and she wanted to share her experience with viewers.
“I thought, I have a tannoy and an option to speak about this, and I think if it helps one person… I feel it’s a bit empowering for me and maybe it’s a bit empowering for someone else to look at it and go: ‘Okay, you know what, I can just go out with a bald head too,'” she declared.
