BBC Celebrity Antiques Road Trip: Trisha Goddard's three marriages and surviving breast cancer

In tonight’s episode of Celebrity Antiques Road Trip, TV doctor and GP Amir Khan will be taking on TV talk show icon Trisha Goddard.

Experts Tim Medhurst and Izzie Balmer will be guiding the celebs as they compete to see who can make the most money from antiques.

Trisha joins the show at another pivotal point in her career, after it was announced earlier this month that she has just scored her own prime time Saturday show on talkRADIO.

Although she is best as host of her own talk show, Trisha, on ITV and Channel 5, the broadcaster has also appeared on Loose Women, The Wright Stuff, and Dancing on Ice.

Trisha’s TV career has been a steady climb to household name status, but it hasn’t been an easy ride for the 63-year-old TV superstar.

Hello! magazine has previously detailed Trisha’s troubled family history, including her anger towards her mum for failing to reveal the identity of her biological father before she died in 2004.

She said: “There were excuses like ‘I wasn’t ready, I wasn’t stable, then I was in the public eye’ and what have you.

“But I don’t think I would have judged her.”

Sixteen years earlier, in 1988, Trisha had lost her half-sister Linda, who died of self-inflicted injuries after battling schizophrenia, a loss which Trisha has said was a contributing factor for some of her subsequent mental health issues.

Trisha married her first husband, Robert Nestdale, in the mid-eighties but it wasn’t long before the couple split.

Robert died in 1989, of what Trisha believed to be cancer before only later finding out that it had in fact been of AIDS.

Appearing on Loose Women earlier this year, Trisha revealed: “One of his colleagues told me it wasn’t cancer, he had died of AIDs and of course I’d just given birth.

“This is 1989 so you have to put your head back in those days when information was patchy about it.”

Trisha had already married a second time when she found out, this time to Mark Grieve, and they had two daughters together – Billie and Madison Mae.

However, Mark and Trisha divorced in 1996, two years before she got married for a third time, to Peter Gianfrancesco in 1998.

The pair were married for a long nineteen years before they divorced in 2017, but during their marriage Peter supported Trisha following her devastating diagnosis of breast cancer.

Trisha has described how Peter was her “rock” as she underwent treatment, but admitted that as she got better their relationship was simultaneously coming to an end.

Trisha told Hello! in 2018 : “It feels good now to finally be able to be honest about where I am in my life…”

She added: “As time passed and I recovered and got stronger and was therefore no longer reliant on him, that’s when I felt things started to change.”

Opening up about her harrowing diagnosis earlier this year, Trisha admitted she still fears her cancer could return over a decade after being given the all-clear.

During an interview on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories, she said: “I remember the guy doing an ultrasound and I said to him, ‘so have I got cancer yes or no??’

“He said I’ll send the results to your surgeon. And I said, tell me now. And he said, no, I’ll send the results to your surgeon.

“And I said, how long have you been doing this for? He said, Nineteen years.

“I said, so you know breast cancer when you see it. He said, yes.

“I said, right, I promise you I won’t sue you, but tell me now, do I have breast cancer, tell me now, here.

“And he said yes and I went [whimpers]. I had two operations, seven, eight months of chemotherapy, basically a year of radiotherapy.”

Trisha added that she “really reacted badly” to the treatment, which saw her veins collapse, as well as her losing nails and getting nose and mouth ulcers – but she continued to work.

Later in the interview, she added: “I never feel completely out of the woods because every year, because of the nature of my cancer, I have to go back every single year and be checked.”
