Duane ‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’ Chapman wife Beth Chapman is “not expected to recover” after being placed in a medically-induced coma amid a throat cancer battle, TMZ reports.

The 51 year old, who had previously appeared in Celebrity Big Brother, was placed in a coma by staff in Hawaii over the weekend.

Her husband took to social media over the weekend to ask fans: “Please say your prayers for Beth right now thank you love you".

TMZ now reports that her family are “preparing for the worst”, and fear “not a lot can be done” – and that she may not leave the hospital.

Her husband posted a sweet photo of her manicured hand in the hospital on Monday, which read: “You all know how she is about HER NAILS!!”

She was diagnosed with stage two throat cancer back in November 2017.

Despite having successful surgery, she was told last year that her cancer had returned.

She began chemotherapy in December last year. In April, she was rushed to hospital in Hawaii with “serious breathing issues”.

Duane had previously spoken out about his wife’s cancer battle, and revealed how the family was coping with what happened.

He said: "Faith is probably the number one thing in our lives, no matter what we’re faced with.

"Through this cancer episode, we had to drum up as much faith as we could.

“And the Bible talks about having faith as small as a mustard seed.

"And that’s not much… And I thank God that we had at least that much faith to get her through that."
