Speaking to the Sun, McGovern said that she was “grateful to be loved so much” and even thanked one of her Twitter followers. She added: “I appreciate every single message I receive. It takes my mind off my cancer.”
Nine years ago, McGovern became the first woman to present a morning show for BBC Radio 1 in the UK and she was a familiar face on air. She signed off from her job in 2003 and died of breast cancer just seven years later. In between those years, she kept in touch with her fans on social media and uses the platform regularly.
The mum-of-two later said she tried to maintain her daily routine while undergoing treatment. Stephanie has two children; Oscar, 4, and Esme, 1, and they are usually at home when she is working.
Talking about whether she misses the breakfast programme, McGovern said: \"Who doesn't miss something? But I wasn't the most talented person in the world. I think I did the best I could to serve the audience and I don't think there's anything more I could have done.\"
\"That’s how I’ve always preferred to deal with things. Sorry it didn’t work out for you,\" an unchanged McGovern, who had presented the Heir's to the Throne on BBC Breakfast for six years, tweeted. 7211a4ac4a
