Talk show icon Trisha Goddard reveals that her breast cancer has returned and is now at an incurable stage.

Trisha Goddard has revealed that she has been diagnosed with stage-four breast cancer.

The talk show icon, 66, previously battled and overcame the disease in 2008 but has now shared the news that it has returned - and while it is treatable, it is incurable.

"It's not going to go away," she told Hello!. "And with that knowledge comes grief, and fear. But I must keep enjoying what I have always enjoyed."

Goddard, who learned the news 19 months ago, continued: "I can't lie; I can't keep making up stories. It gets to a stage, after a year and a half, when keeping a secret becomes more of a burden than anything else.

"My worry is that people will start seeing me as a frail little thing, and that if [the news] got out, I'd be judged, or people would change the way they are with me, or that I wouldn't work.

"I'm a journalist; I don't want to be 'the story'. I don't want to be interviewing someone and for them to say to me: 'I'm so sorry.'"

Goddard currently presents Channel 5's You Are What You Eat revival and hosts a weekend show on TalkTV.
