Broadcaster and Journalist Steve Hewlett has died at the age of 58.

He was diagnosed last March with cancer of the oesophagus.

In a statement, his family said: “Over the last year, we have been overwhelmed by the support of friends, colleagues and Radio 4 listeners.

“The messages helped Steve enormously, especially over the last few months.”

The Media Show presenter died on Monday morning at the Royal Marsden Hospital in west London.

He recently revealed he married his partner Rachel earlier this month, after being told he had “weeks, possibly months” to live.
