Anne Diamond was rushed to hospital due to her "stonkingly high blood pressure"

GB News Anne Diamond has revealed details of a new health scare and explained how paramedics were left with white with fear before they raced her to hospital. The 69-year-old broadcaster recently told how she’d undergone treatment for breast cancer.

Speaking on her GBNews Breakfast show today (Saturday) Anne revealed how she has had to take time off-screen due to dangerously high pressure.

She said: “Some of you have been asking why I’ve been off. The reason I've been off was a lot to do with stonkingly high blood pressure.

"And while that wasn't the whole problem, and I am still yet to get a proper diagnosis as to what was going on, it was an enormous part of the problem. “I didn't realise that I had such incredibly high blood pressure.

"When the paramedics saw it they sort of went white and said, ‘Well, you're off to hospital.’ And that was that. It just made me think because wherever you go nowadays, in the doctor's surgery or in a pharmacy, there's always a notice up about it.

"And it doesn't matter how young you think you are, you ought to take your blood pressure. It's an easy thing to do and all the rest of it, but it's clearly an enormous thing too.

“I just think that maybe there is a lot more sort of campaigning to be done, I've done a sort of crash course in the last month. But high blood pressure is a real problem, and probably low blood pressure is as well.

"But your blood pressure is massively important. And the younger you are keeping an eye on it, the less likely you are to have any big problems later in life. Obviously it impacts absolutely everything so maybe we should all be a little bit more blood pressure aware.”
