Sarah Beeny has announced that she has breast cancer and is currently undergoing treatment.
The 50-year-old presenter and property expert is best known for her work on UK property programmes, including Help! My house is falling and Sarah Beeny’s new life in the country.
Beeny has admitted during an interview with The Telegraph that she had “a little meltdown” after receiving the news in a hospital consultation room.
Speaking to the newspaper, she revealed that she started chemotherapy to treat the cancer last week and will have surgery and radiation therapy in the new year.
Despite her diagnosis, Beeny has said she will keep working and is currently focused on a new Channel 4 series and book she has planned for later in the year.
Beeny also said, “I’m lucky because I live in a family where we all talk.”
She added that she plans to draw on her “inner strength” throughout the treatment process.
Beeny lost her mother to breast cancer when she was 10 years old.
She has four children – Rafferty, Laurie, Billy and Charlie – and has been married to her husband, artist Graham Swift, since 2003.
In 2010, as part of the Channel 4 series Beeny’s Restoration Nightmare, Beeny began planning the refurbishment of Rise Hall, a Grade I listed mansion in Rise, East Yorkshire.

Beeny and Swift worked on renovating Rise Hall as a family home and wedding venue, then sold the property in 2019.
In March of this year, she announced she was leaving London to move into a seven-bedroom house in Somerset with Swift and their sons.
The couple bought the 220-acre sheep station in August 2018, and Beeny later said she decided to make the move permanent after considering her children’s education.
