“The people I worry about are the people who have to tackle cancer alone.”Turnbull said bee keeping had been “very good therapy” as when he focused on his six hives everything else was briefly forgotten.“When in chemo you have to be careful not to be stung or catch colds but I still manage to peek in at them,” he added.

Turnbull said that having travelled so much as a reporter he had no desire to travel the world and admitted he hated the term “bucket list” because it implied you were about to kick the bucket.He is writing a book and enjoying spending time exploring Suffolk with his wife, Sesi, who he described as “incredible”. “I would be absolutely lost without her,” he added. Bill Turnbull, the broadcaster, has been told he needs more chemotherapy for prostate cancer having thought he had finished the treatment.The former BBC Breakfast host said his prognosis was “not dire but not brilliant by any means” and that although he hates the term “bucket list” he planned to spend the summer doing one or two things he would not otherwise have done.A keen bee keeper, he was at the Chelsea Flower Show to highlight the importance of the work of the Bees for Development charity and said the hobby had provided a welcome relief distraction since his diagnosis.Turnbull, 62, said: “I’ve had six rounds of chemotherapy and that should be the lot but I think I will have to have some more.“It’s a bit irritating because it gets worse as time goes on.”He revealed in March that he had prostate cancer which had spread to his bones, despite checks at 40 and 50. He said he made the decision to go public because of the “irony” that he had taken part in The Great Celebrity Bake Off – Channel 4’s Stand Up to Cancer special – when he had cancer but did not know it. Since then, he has been contacted by “a lot” of people who had been inspired to get tested as a result, or whose fathers or relatives had gone to get checked, and had been told they had prostate cancer.“Lives have been changed, lives have been saved as a result, which is fantastic,” he said.“I didn’t go to the doctor for four years because I didn’t have anything wrong with me, I thought.“Occasionally I think if I had taken notice of this or that things might be brighter but there we go, you just have to get on with it.”Turnbull, who has three grown-up children, is being treated at the Royal Marsden, a specialist cancer treatment hospital in London, which he said was a “great place.”“You don’t have to ask anybody what’s wrong,” he said. “We all know.”He has had chemotherapy, hormone injections and a “cocktail of drugs” and believes he should still have “quite a lot of time.” Bee keeping had been “very good therapy”, Turnbull saidCredit:Paul Hackett/Getty Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?
