Former BBC Breakfast presenter, host Bill Turnbull is confirmed dead at the age of 66 years according to his family in a released statement about Cause of Death.
Bill Turnbull appeared on BBC Breakfast TV Show from the year 2001 to 2016 before being officially diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2017.
Through social media, the official statement from his family was written that:
“Following a challenging and committed fight against prostate cancer, Bill passed away peacefully at his home in Suffolk surrounded by his family on Wednesday, 31st August.
Bill was diagnosed in 2017 and has had outstanding medical care from the Royal Marsden and Ipswich Hospitals, St Elizabeth Hospice and his GP.
He was resolutely positive and was hugely buoyed by the support he received from friends, colleagues, and messages from people wishing him luck. It was a great comfort to Bill that so many more men are now testing earlier for this disease.
“ill will be remembered by many as a remarkable broadcaster who brought warmth and humour into people’s homes on BBC Breakfast and Classic FM.
He was also a devoted Wycombe Wanderers fan and an ever-aspiring beekeeper. Bill was a wonderful husband and father to his three children; his family and friends will miss how he always made them laugh, and the generosity and love he shared with those around him.”- they wrote.
Bill was the kindest, funniest, most generous man in the business. I feel lucky to have worked with him and he taught me everything.
But above all, he was devoted to his family and I am heartbroken for them. RIP Bill. We will miss you so much. https://t.co/RyfhBoE9O2
