Nicki Chapman’s health scare
Nicki Chapman is certainly a familiar face on TV. She’s presented everything from BBC Breakfast News to Escape to the Country.
However, at 52 years old her life would never be the same again as she was diagnosed with a brain tumour.
Nicki underwent surgery to remove a golf ball-sized tumour from her brain in May 2019.
Following her illness, she has said to The Mirror that the experience has made her “less judgemental”. She has also said that she is now “feeling fine” and gave the growth a nickname of “Bert”.
