SHOCK! Martin Bashir diagnosed with brain tumour
Martin Bashir now lives in New York
The journalist – famed for interviewing Princess Diana and Michael Jackson – has a growth on his pituitary gland.
The tumour, which is thought to be non-cancerous, was found when Martin hurt his head while filming a news show in America.
But he has vowed to not let the scare interfere with his life.
'It has been a very worrying time, but the good news is that the specialists don't want to operate on the tumour yet,' a pal tells the Daily Mirror.
'If he hadn't had the knock, he would never have known about the tumour. He sees it as a blessing in disguise.'
Martin, 45, lives in New York with his wife Debbie and their 2 children.
