BBC Breakfast star Louise Minchin, 52, has taken to Twitter to send her well wishes to Sky News’ Jacquie Beltrao, 55, after the presenter gave her 79,000 followers an update on her operation last night. Jacquie, whose breast cancer returned back in June last year, admitted feeling a “little bit worried” as she waited in hospital to have an operation on her lymph nodes yesterday.

Fortunately, the broadcaster took to social media once again later on in the day to reveal her surgery had gone well.

Jacquie shared a photo from her hospital bed and wrote: “Op went well – all done (thanks Mr Sharma) Feeling a bit dopey – quite nice though – dreamy – no yoga for me for a while! (Or laundry, or jet washing or painting) 

“Thanks for all the lovely messages of support – I read them all sorry if I don’t reply.”

Louise was one of many of Jacquie’s followers who sent their love to the star following her health update.

The BBC presenter penned: “Lots of love, take it easy xx.”

Fans joined Louise in sending messages of support to Jacquie while she recovered from her operation in hospital.

One person wrote: “How does someone look so nice after what you’ve been through. Get your rest Mrs Beltrao.”

Another added: “Hi Jacquie, great to hear your op went well. Get lots of rest now and no big physical events, we want you back behind the camera doing everything you do best.”


A third fan commented: “Sending you every positive vibe I can! Hope all is ok and you make a good and full recovery.”

Louise’s sweet message comes after the Sky News presenter appeared on camera wearing a hospital gown, with an arrow drawn above her left breast, ahead of her operation yesterday.

She explained: “So here I am, operation clear out your lymph nodes. 

“On the left, where he has drawn an arrow,” she gave a loud sigh.

Jacquie continued: “Oh god, I feel like I have been here before, it’s because I have.”

She added: “I’m all set actually, I’ve got my compression socks on. They are very lovely. I don’t know if you can see them. Yep. It’s a look, it’s the hospital look and I am trying to rock it.”

Jacquie continued: “I am a little bit worried, but I am in very good hands. It is a very short operation.

“I have only got to wait a couple of hours now and I’ll be getting going. I’ll speak to you when I wake up.”

Jacquie first had breast cancer in 2013, before going into remission, but announced last year it had sadly returned as stage three.

Meanwhile, BBC Breakfast star Louise had to take an extended break from the show due to undergoing surgery for an injury, before returning to the Breakfast sofa alongside her co-host Dan Walker in December.

Louise’s foot injury was a result of the presenter not having her ankle checked earlier by doctors after sustaining an injury training for a triathlon last year.

She then revealed that she had broken a bone in her foot and had also snapped an ankle ligament.

After surgery to reconstruct, Louise admitted she had no idea how long it would take for her to fully recover.
