BBC News presenter George Alagiah is taking time off TV for cancer treatment.

In a statement on Monday, his agent said: “George Alagiah, presenter of BBC News at Six, Britain’s most watched news programme, is to take a break from studio duties to deal with a further spread of cancer.”

George was first diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer in April 2014 and again in December 2017. Last year, it had spread to his lungs, liver and lymph nodes, and he also contracted COVID-19.

He is due to undergo a combination of chemotherapy and radiotherapy over the next few months.

A BBC spokesperson said: “We are all wishing George well and look forward to seeing him back in the newsroom.”
