Jacquie Beltrao, 55, had revealed she suffered a “bad week” while sharing some upsetting news about her health in view of her 81,000 followers. The Sky News presenter explained that the cancer has “flared up” again and she added it “got in my bones”.

The broadcaster, who is battling stage 4 breast cancer, shared an emotional video with her followers and has since been inundated with well wishes.

Jacquie explained that the medication she has been taking has not been working but is trying to remain optimistic.

Taking to Twitter, the Sky News presenter, wrote: “I’ve had a bad week – very bad week – up #SchittsCreek – #notquite but another kick in the guts (and head) – Disappointed but relieved. #stage4 #breastcancer.”

Explaining the situation, Jacquie said in her video: “So here’s the thing I’ve got my scans back and they’re absolutely rubbish.

“All of the cancer that was being a bit more quiet has flared up rearing to go for a picnic in a few places. So now I’ve got it in my bones where I didn’t have it before.

“That smart drug I was on was not so smart for me. It’s really scary. It’s awful actually.”

She continued: “I’m going onto a new clever drug – well hopefully it’s clever – next week.

“I’m going to have to dig into that bag of gears and keep going forward and believing that there is something out there for me.

“I’m not up Schitt’s Creek yet. I’ve still got some options.”

Jacquie concluded: “While I’ve still got options I’ve got to remain optimistic and just get on with and keep going in a forward direction.

“With that in mind, I’ll see you in the morning.”

Fans and colleagues alike flocked to comment on the post, as they offered their well wishes to the presenter.

Sky News host Anna Botting wrote: “Oh Jacquie. I am so sorry. You are amazing, keeping on keeping on. Fingers, toes and everything crossed for the new treatment. Sending all love.”

Another social media user penned: “I’m so sorry you’ve had such rubbish news today. Your resilience is remarkable and I hope the next week’s drugs aren’t just smart but bloody genius xxx.”

A third commented: “Jacquie, not the news you wanted after all that effort, but as usual you are rolling with it and keeping positive. New treatment, new challenge, new hope. You are doing so well and we are all with you. Hope the next drug is the one. Sending much love to you all.”

“Keep fighting Jacquie, you’ve been such an inspiration to many others,” another penned.

Jacquie’s update comes after she bravely returned to work, appearing on Sky News earlier this month.

The host was seen hooked up to a drip just two days prior to her appearance on the news channel, saying she was “still red”.

She tweeted at the time: “Back in on a Friday @SkyNews for the first time in a while – sport in just a sec but I’ve got a question for you – tweet me.

“(PS note the polo neck shirt I’m still incredibly rashy!).”

Jacquie was diagnosed with breast cancer on Christmas Eve 2013 and later had a mastectomy, with the disease – stage 4 – returning in June last year.
