Roisin Pelan, who is fighting breast cancer for a second time, and her partner Michael Brown, are joined by Alan Titchmarsh for Love Your Garden.
The show helps to transform a garden and you hear Roisin’s story and her bravery alongside it as the show takes over their Ashton-on-Ribble home.
Roisin said: “The whole team were so lovely. I think people imagine Alan doesn’t get involved but he really did get stuck in. He was the sweetest guy.
“The garden is like nothing we couldn’t imagined and reflected our personalities wonderfully.”
In February, Roisin spoke to Blog Preston in February about being told she was facing a battle with breast cancer for the second time.
Four years since she was first diagnosed while 34 weeks pregnant with her daughter Ivy. She kept a blog about the cancer battle called Fighting Pants Are On.
But Roisin says her treatment is going well again and she’s staying positive.
She said: “I’m having radiotherapy for the next month and then more chemo at the Christie (in Manchester).
“I’ve responded really well to treatment and intent on going nowhere.
“My sister in Australia is also having radiotherapy for her breast cancer so we’re hoping to meet up for a hug at the end of the treatment.”
