Sue Perkins finds the side effects of her brain tumour to be "infuriating".

The 54-year-old TV star has been living with a benign brain tumour for years, and Sue has now revealed how it impacts her life on a day-to-day basis.

Sue wrote on X: "My brain's like a shaken snow-globe. All flurry and no settle."

The TV host also sent her support to other people who are going through similar experiences.

She wrote on the micro-blogging platform: "I hate pituitary tumours and I'm sending love if you've got one in your head. They are infuriating."

In response, one of Sue's followers replied: "This random internet stranger is so sorry to hear that you're going through this. I was just rewatching some of the earlier GBBO seasons-my go-to for a dopamine hit -and I wish that all of the happiness, joy, laughter that you and Mel created comes back to you in spades. (sic)"

Sue then replied: "thank you x (sic)"

The veteran TV presenter previously revealed that her tumour has left her infertile.

Sue actually likened the situation to a "bereavement".

During an appearance on BBC Radio 4, Sue shared: "I literally destroyed my life from the inside out.

"I always like to think that I’m accountable for everything that I do, but I’ll never understand how I did some of the things I did.

"I walked out of my life. I ended a relationship."

Sue now regrets that she doesn't have the option to have kids.

She said: "I don't know if I would have gone on to have children. But as soon as someone says you can't have something, you want it more than anything."
