Ex-BBC star Bill Turnbull turns attention from cancer battle to nuclear power plant fight. The Classic FM presenter battling cancer is taking on a new fight – against a Sizewell C nuclear plant in local area which he says will devastate wildlife and ruin the countryside. Broadcaster Bill Turnbull is ready to do “whatever it takes” as he turns his attentions from fighting the Big C to a new enemy – Sizewell C. The former Strictly contestant has become an unlikely eco warrior, warning a proposed new nuclear plant will devastate wildlife and ruin the countryside around his home for years to come. At its peak, a 14-year building plan would see 1,500 lorries a day thundering down country lanes. As his own battle with cancer continues, Bill, 64, is chairing local opposition meetings and drumming up support to halt the development at Sizewell, Suffolk.
