BBC's George Alagiah returns to the News at Six for first time after year off air for treatment

BBC News anchor George Alagiah returned to the air last night for the first time in more than a year, following a battle with cancer.

Sporting a new beard, the 63-year-old fronted the News at Six programme after earlier revealing his illness was now in “a holding pattern”.

He was first diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2014 and has since made intermittent returns to the broadcaster, where he has worked since 1989.

Fellow presenter Sophie Raworth confirmed the comeback yesterday morning by posting a picture on Twitter of Alagiah smiling and suited in the newsroom.
