Bill Turnbull has revealed a plant-based diet and yoga have helped him maintain a healthy lifestyle and tackle mood swings brought on by hormone therapy as he tackles prostate cancer.

The broadcaster, 64, who was diagnosed with the incurable disease in 2017, admitted that while he feels 'absolutely fine most of the time', his medication can leave him 'howling like a baby'.

Media personality Bill said he decided to ditch meat and diary after researching about alternative treatments, and expressed his gratitude towards fellow sufferers for providing him with 'great' advice.

On his cancer battle, the former BBC host said: 'Most of the time, I am absolutely fine, I get hot flushes, they pass. But occasionally, I can feel my mood dipping.

'Now when we go down into a dip and I howl like a baby - well, like a grown man, which is much worse - I understand it is chemically induced and it will pass the next day. And it always does.'

The presenter revealed he's also on Radium 223, which 'was working very well for five months', but is 'now working sort of OK.'
