One of the hosts of BBC Radio 5 Live’s podcast You, Me and the Big C has revealed she is now “in a cancer-free place” after three years of treatment.

“It’s a bit bonkers … but right now I have no evidence of cancer in my body, ” Deborah James said on Instagram.

James, who was diagnosed with incurable bowel cancer in 2016, told her 91,000 adherents she was “beyond grateful”.

“I never ever thought we would be here, ” she told BBC Breakfast on Wednesday. “It’s only just sinking in.”

The former deputy headteacher said she “sat and cried” when she heard the news, but was not taking anything for granted.

“Nobody knows what the future holds, ” she said, adding that she would continue treatment at the Royal Marsden Hospital.
