You Know Breast: Juggling motherhood and chemotherapy

Seven months ago, Lorraine producer Helen Addis was diagnosed with breast cancer. Since then, she’s started her own blog The Titty Gritty to document her journey, and to raise awareness of her condition.

As part of her treatment plan, Helen needs 16 chemotherapy sessions in total, and will complete all of them before Christmas this year.

She opened the door to the Lorraine team for one chemotherapy session, and gave us an insight into the physical, emotional and mental toll it can take. She also reveals how she juggles being a mother to three kids while dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

She points out: "The word 'mother' is in the word 'chemotherapy', and I can't wait until the letters either side of that fall away and I can go back to being a fit and healthy mother again."

Tess Daly shares fond memories of Bruce Forsyth

Tess Daly has revealed how much she still misses her old friend and ex-colleague Bruce Forsyth. Speaking to Lorraine, she reflected on her 10-year friendship with Bruce and the experience of filming Strictly Come Dance with him.

Tess admitted she teared up as she walked past Bruce’s old dressing room - a room in the same studios where Lorraine is filmed.

“”Bruce was a very special part of my life and an incredible person and so generous,” she said.

“To have shared that time with him was a privilege.”

Bruce Forsyth passed away aged 89 in August last year, after suffering from a series of health complications.
