Sky News presenter Jacquie Beltrao has celebrated England’s Euro 2020 final appearance as a ‘big day’ both personally and professionally, as she debuted her real hair on camera after receiving cancer-free scans.
Jacquie, 56, has stage four breast cancer but received ‘some good news at last’ at her latest scans at the end of June when no evidence of cancer was detected.
Acknowledging that she ‘know[s] it’s not forever’, the former Olympic gymnast has kept a positive mindset throughout her battle with cancer, which she was first diagnosed with in 2013 before it returned in June 2020.
She has been busy at work in recent weeks on her sports beat, and on Sunday was at Wembley ahead of England’s clash against Italy to decide the European Championship.
In a Twitter clip she posted for her followers, Jackie said: ‘Morning! Very happy to be live here at Wembley on the big day.
‘Big day for me was well – I’ve got my hair out, my actual, actual own hair.’

Turning around to show the back of her hairdo, Jacquie explained: ‘I mean it’s all different lengths and mad, so I’ve kind of managed to scrape it into a bun.
‘Probably a bit severe – Stephen Dixon [Jacquie’s Sky News colleague] says my forehead’s too big to be wearing my hair like his, but this is my hair!’
‘Step forward,’ she exclaimed, with a thumbs up.
Jacquie also shared her excitement in the accompanying tweet, writing: ‘MY HAIR ?? #ItsComingHome – finally it’s out in public on its own – it’s a huge day ! (No fake parting just a small extension to make a decent bun) ? It’s still not long enough for a proper haircut but soon… ? ? #cancer #anotherstepforward #fakeittilyoumakeit.’
The presenter has been sharing her journey with cancer on social media, documenting her hospital visits and encouraging people to check themselves for lumps.
