Days after starting chemotherapy, she decided to enlist her four sons, whom she shares with her 19-year-old artist husband, Graham Swift, to help her cut their hair.

She admitted that Billy, 18, Charlie, 16, Rafferty, 14, and Laurie, 12, “won’t be famous barbers” after the uneven cut.

“I was very, very sad before. I think because losing your hair is so real: before that, you can pretend it’s not happening,” she added of the pivotal moment.

Sarah added that while she wasn’t told her own mother’s cancer was terminal, she was open about her own diagnosis with her boys.

“I’m lucky because I live in a family where we all talk,” she explained. “They just said, ‘Are you going to be honest?’ And I said, ‘I promise you I’ll be around for a long time. It’s going to be a little difficult. But I promise I won’t lie.’ said that.’

Despite her diagnosis, Sarah has said she will keep working and is currently focused on a new Channel 4 series and book which she has planned for later in the year.

Sarah has previously spoken openly about the loss of her mother at a young age, telling the Daily Mail in 2020: “Death is difficult for a child to understand but I was close to Diccon [my brother] and my father, and you just keep going.’

“The only good thing about losing her when I was so young is that she will always be absolutely perfect to me.”

Sarah and her family left their London home in March to move into a seven-bedroom house in Somerset, after buying a 220-acre former farm in 2018.

The family made the move permanent after documenting the purchase and restoration of the farm on Channel 4 series Sarah Beeny’s New Life In The Country.

In 2010, Sarah also featured her family in the series Beeny’s Restoration Nightmare, which documented her and Graham’s refurbishment of Rise Hall, a Grade I listed mansion in Rise, East Yorkshire.

They converted the mansion into a family home and wedding venue and sold the property in 2019.
