Trisha Goddard, the daytime television presenter who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, has had her hair cropped in preparation for chemotherapy.



She admitted that the process of having her long hair cut off was "shocking and emotionally draining", adding that she bleached her crop blonde as an act of defiance amid the gloom of her diagnosis.

Doctors detected the cancer this year following a routine mammogram.

Miss Goddard, 51, a mother of two, has since undergone a lumpectomy and the removal of several lymph glands, and begins a course of chemotherapy shortly.

Unveiling her new look in Hello! magazine, she said: "When I learned that I was going to need chemotherapy following my surgery, I had to consider the prospect of losing my hair – something which really scared me.

"I am going to wear a cold cap during my treatment – something which stretches over your head and freezes the hair follicles, hopefully protecting them. But that works better with short hair."

The idea to go blonde was suggested by her husband, Peter Gianfrancesco.

Miss Goddard said: "I thought, 'Yes!' This is my way of sticking two fingers up at the situation."

This is a couple of weeks old, but I haven't seen it posted. I'm glad she is ok and hope the chemotherapy goes well for her. Good luck Trisha - gobble gobble! :)
