BOUGH LIVER SWAP; Star beats cancer.
FORMER TV anchorman Frank Bough was "fit and well" yesterday after having a liver transplant to beat cancer.
Bough, host of Grandstand, Nationwide and Breakfast Time in more than 20 years as a famous BBC face, had been given weeks to live after a tumour was found.
The swap op is thought to have been a success and Bough, 68, is at home in Maidenhead, Berks.
Yesterday he confirmed he had had a major operation and was "fitter than ever". Bough kept his illness a secret while having gruelling drug therapy until a donor organ became available.
The ex-presenter, married for 46 years, has been out of the limelight since 1992 when he was photographed visiting a sado-masochistic vice den.
