Former Metro FM, Key 103 and XFM presenter Michelle Mullane has passed away. She was reported to have died today December 27 2020. Michelle who has been battling with bowel cancer for so long sadly succumbed to the sickness.

The Ex-Key 103 radio presenter spoke about her health revealing that she was diagnosed with incurable cancer after suffering cramping pains.

Michelle was told she would have six months to live without treatment when she was diagnosed with stage four bowel cancer in June last year.

She appears as a regular guest on BBC Radio Manchester.

Michelle Mullane, an early champion of my music, who alongside Conrad Murray and terry Christian was one of the first people to play my songs on BBC Radio Manc way back in 2004/05.

Jason Manford took to his official Facebook page to announce that Michelle Mullane has passed on.


Read What He Posted On His Facebook Page: Just found out my dear friend and ex-BBC Manchester presenter Michelle Mullane sadly passed away on Christmas Eve.

I have so many fond memories of Michelle from when I was starting out in stand up in the late 90s. Michelle was the first person to get me on the airwaves and we spent many an evening laughing, flirting & joking over brews; on-air and off. We drank millions of cups of tea and her show ‘Michelle around Midnight’ was one of the only shows you could get on, get paid and just be yourself without having to be a big ‘tv name’.

She was an incredible supporter of new talent and gave a leg up to so many of us northern comedians at a time where it felt like if you weren’t in London, you didn’t stand a chance. She has supported me and many others ever since.

She will be dearly missed by so many people, not least her young daughter Liv. She only messaged me the other week to congratulate me on Royal Variety and to say how proud she was of me. Even in her state, she still thought of others.

For over a year we’ve been trying to organise a charity gig (postponed due to covid) in aid of Kidney Cancer UK & Bowel Cancer Research. The second we are able to, I will 100% make sure this happens in your name Michelle.

Thank you for everything. All my love, Jason
