Sarah Beeny, 50, opened up about her breast cancer battle and how chemo causing her hair to fall has been “really traumatic” for her. The Property Ladder presenter revealed earlier this year that she was diagnosed with breast cancer after losing her mother to the same disease when she was only 10 years old.

Now, Sarah is undergoing chemotherapy treatment and has been keeping fans updated on social media.

Speaking in a new interview, Sarah admitted that it was “really traumatic” when “handfuls” of hair began to fall out after starting chemo two weeks after her diagnosis.

“That’s when I cried. I thought, ‘Oh God, this is it. It’s happening,’” she added to Weekend magazine.

Since her diagnosis, Sarah has debuted a new short haircut, after donating some of her hair to the Little Princess Trust.

Speaking about her four teenage boys attempting to cut off her hair, Sarah said: “To be honest, I wouldn’t recommend getting four teenage boys to cut off your hair.

“Graham was trying to cut it nicely, but the boys – well, they’re not going to be famous hairdressers.

“They said I looked like Cersei Lannister from Game of Thrones – I mean, she’s beautiful so I was sort of flattered, but my hair is now in some places about a centimetre long and in some places, it’s an inch long.”

Despite the joking, Sarah also confessed that she found losing her hair “really, really sad”.

On the day she went to the doctor, Sarah knew she was going to be told she had cancer.

“I think I’m impatient because it might run out; you might not have any more time,” she added to The Telegraph.

Back in September, Sarah said she had been  “overwhelmed” by the kind messages of support from her fans on social media.

In response to a fan thanking her for taking a selfie with them, Sarah wrote: “Lovely to meet you! It was a fab gig!

“Bit overwhelmed by soo many lovely comments of support – but no way that many positive vibes won’t win out so thanks so much for your message! X.” (sic)

Twitter user @Gaye26Gaye had sent the TV star a sweet message after they met.

They penned: “Sending lots of hugs Sarah.

“You made my day at Carfest North by having a selfie with me.

“Your boys are lovely, you should be very proud. Kick cancer’s butt!!!xx,” the post ended alongside a series of hearts.

But the property expert explained the illness will not stop her from continuing her Channel 4 series and new book.

Sarah also confirmed that she will have surgery in the new year.

She will begin a course of radiotherapy at that time, after her course of chemotherapy.
