Jacquie Beltrao talks ‘unattractive swelling’ hours before Sky News return after operation

The small screen favourite reassured that she was “on the mend”, before disclosing that she is suffering from “unattractive swelling” as a result of the operation.
Taking to Twitter, the TV presenter addressed her 79,800 followers in a 40-second clip.
She said: “Hi everybody, I just want to say thank you so much for your messages of support after my operation.”
Jacquie went on to tell her followers that she is recovering after the surgery, but is still swollen on one part of her body.
She continued: “I am on the mend now, I have got a sarcoma, which is – I thought an Italian cocktail – but it’s a very unattractive swelling of bodily fluids after an operation to remove lymph nodes.
