Gabby Logan's tears over husband's cancer battle as she guest hosts Pointless
Gabby and her husband, former rugby player Kenny Logan, went through an emotional whirlwind after Kenny's shocking prostate cancer diagnosis.The heartfelt revelation, made by the beloved BBC Sports presenter on Steven Bartlett's The Diary of a CEO podcast in 2022, saw Gabby share: "He [Kenny] was really upset as you can imagine and I just thought, 'Right no, this is going to be absolutely fine, what are we going to do? What are the answers here?'" Gabby, who appears on Pointless on Friday, 17 May, further explained how their neurologist proved to be an amazing source of guidance, she said: "His neurologist was brilliant, he's a brilliant communicator and told us what the options were and I was like, (to Kenny) 'We've just to get a plan together, you need to know what you're doing and then we will keep being positive about it.'" Once they had adjusted to the initial shock, they treated the ordeal as a project: "That's what we did really, once we got over the initial shock, we just really kind of focused on it as a project we had to deal with and it's a b****y awful operation." Despite the gut-wrenching diagnosis, Gabby showed remarkable resilience, revealing that deep down, she was certain she "wasn't going to lose her husband, who is also the father of her two children. As she shared stories about how this formidable challenge had actually strengthened their bond, with Kenny proving to be an incredible "rock" throughout the journey, the normally composed sportscaster was moved to tears.
