James Will has confirmed he will remain in hospital after a series of blood transfusions recently while he battles cancer of the brain, spine, kidneys and lungs.
The leading broadcaster discussed his terminal condition during a rare public appearance at the British Carey Awards in November, and has since been hospitalized for a series of procedures.
Weil, 71, revealed that a blood transfusion during his current stay did not go according to plan, which means he will continue to receive medical supervision for an extended period of time.

He told Twitter followers on Monday evening: ‘Sorry to say guys, a lot of people ask how my transfusions went. Unfortunately they didn’t do the trick.
“Obviously my lungs are full of blood clots, so they’re keeping me inside to purge it out and hopefully it won’t take too long.”
The presenter also shared a photo from his hospital bed, with a self-deprecating caption: “Not sure if this is the look, I gotta go!! But you never know I can start a new trend.”

TalkTV and talkRADIO presenter Will gave a heartbreaking speech at Evolution London on November 28, while appearing at the annual British Curry Awards with his wife, Nadine Lamont-Brown.
‘I know many of you will not like me,’ he said to the assembled guests, ‘but this time next year I will not be here. I am suffering from terminal cancer.
“As you may be able to hear, I am on chemotherapy which is making it more difficult for me to breathe, but I am fine. do not worry.’
Al-Hout also referred to his dear friend Inam Ali, MBE, who passed away in July after a two-year battle with cancer. Pioneer Epsom Carey raised over £2 million for charity before his death.
He continued, “I’m in my 70s now and I just want to say don’t waste your time on stupid things that don’t matter.”

The couple married each other in a romantic ceremony at Tenterden Town Hall in Kent in October 2021.
The wedding came 14 months after the radio host revealed he was suffering from cancer of the spine, brain, and kidney, and three years after his first wife, Melinda, died of stage 4 lung cancer.
He had previously been given only three months to live when he was diagnosed with kidney cancer in 2000.
Whale announced his engagement on Twitter, telling fans at the time that he would reveal “to whom later” while keeping Lamont-Brown’s identity a mystery.
Sharing the news, he wrote: “Breaking news this weekend on my birthday I have to announce I’ve become engaged – I’ll reveal to them later!”

Will’s late wife Melinda, 48, died in May 2018, with the presenter telling MailOnline at the time of her diagnosis: ‘You can’t be expected to live long, it could be weeks or months.
She’s in treatment, and I can’t let go of the last glimmer of hope. But doctors say I have to face the facts. She is dying. The thought of losing her is so painful, it’s hard to even think about it.
Melinda went to her GP in September 2017, after feeling unwell and having a cough.

She said at the time: ‘I thought it was just a virus but the doctor found an infection in my left lung and ear. I was prescribed antibiotics and sent home.
When they didn’t work, Melinda returned and was prescribed another course, which also didn’t work, before being sent for a chest X-ray.
I was getting more and more tired. At some point I really doubted myself. I thought, “This is in your head, Melinda.” I thought it was the winter blues.
But when I saw the radiologist’s face, I immediately knew something was wrong. The next day, I was told I needed more tests.
She added, “By the time I was told it was cancer in December, I already knew. Don’t ask me how, but I did. I have stage 4 lung cancer with secondary cancer spread here, there and everywhere.
It’s in my bones, my spine, and my lymph nodes. ping has gone all over the place. It was a huge shock. You’re talking about three months of perfect health to now, when I sleep almost 24 hours a day. It definitely crept up on me.
She passed away just months later, in May 2018.
Heartbreak: ‘You can’t be expected to live long, it could take weeks or months,’ he told MailOnline at the time of her diagnosis.
Whale hoped Melinda could beat the ultimatum, like he did 18 years ago when he was told he had a football-sized kidney tumor.
He said: ‘They weren’t sure they could work. I thought I was going to die.’
After beating the odds and having a nephrectomy, he set up the Kidney Cancer Foundation UK, a charity that helps support people with the disease and their loved ones.
