TV presenter Carol Vorderman has revealed that her beloved mum, Jean, has been diagnosed with terminal cancer.

The former Loose Women panellist posted a message on Twitter: “A precious Mother’s Day x This wk Mum & I found out she has terminal cancer. She’s 88, beautiful inside and out & I love her beyond measure x”

Jean has previously had cancer three times.

Carol, 55, shared details of her third battle with the illness in 2015, when she underwent surgery.

“Mum is having her 3rd cancer op today but this op is minor compared to the previous ones thankfully,” she revealed at the time.

She continued: “Mum has had a 3lb ovarian tumour removed (miraculously it hadn’t spread) then she had kidney cancer so half of her right kidney was removed, this time it’s a pretty big malignant melonoma, but Mum says, ‘Goodness me, this is nothing. I’ll be in and out in no time’.”
