BBC host Mark Radcliffe diagnosed with cancer

By Ajay Nair, news reporter
Mark Radcliffe has said he will be taking time off from his radio shows so he can be treated for "cancerous tongue and lymph node issues".
The 60-year-old, who presents BBC Radio 2's Folk Show and works for 6 Music, reassured fans that he had received his diagnosis early - and he hopes to return to the airwaves in the new year.
He tweeted: "Now - here's a thing - I'm sad to say that I've got some cancerous tongue and lymph node issues and so, as I'm sure you'll understand, I'm going to be disappearing for a while to get that all sorted out."It's all been caught very early and so everything should be fine."

Radcliffe has worked for the BBC in various roles since the 1980s - including a brief spell hosting the Radio 1 Breakfast Show in the 1990s.
