Adam Henson says he’s staying with Countryfile
Countryfile presenter Adam Henson’s wife Charlie has admitted that their September 2021 wedding came about because of her pancreatic cancer diagnosis.
After receiving the bad news, the couple returned home where Charlie proposed to her long-term love who has been a presenter on the BBC show since 2001.
“I told Adam I wanted to get married,” she said. “We had been together for many years and had never felt we needed to marry: for me, having children with Adam was our commitment to each other.
“A wedding had never been important. Now, suddenly, it was the most important thing in the world.”
“It’s ridiculous but I really, really wanted everyone to know how much I love Adam; most importantly, I wanted him to know. It was suddenly such a big thing,” she told The Telegraph.

With the couple somewhat overwhelmed by Charlie’s health development, her mother and sisters organised the ceremony for them, booking the first date available at Stroud Registry Office – September 9.
Just a week before their wedding day, she underwent surgery removing the wide part of the pancreas, the gall bladder, and part of the duodenum. She had to remain in intensive care for three days with no visitors due to Covid restrictions.
Charlie is currently in recovery, and Adam admitted “We live from one six-monthly scan to the next”. She is also taking iron supplements and blood thinners but is admittedly doing better two years on.
Charlie was diagnosed in 2021 and the first sign of her illness was when she told Adam she had a bad stomach.
At the time Adam wasn’t “overly worried” but soon her symptoms progressively worsened.

The couple opened up about Charlie’s cancer diagnosis in an extract from Adam’s book, Christmas on the Farm: Wintry Tales from a Life Spent Working with Animals, obtained by The Telegraph.
She had booked an appointment with a GP but after they ran several tests nothing appeared to show up on the results, despite Charlie having bouts of diarrhea and feeling drained.
Initial tests revealed her body was not absorbing food so she was given medication.
Adam’s partner eventually went for a scan which led to her diagnosis.
The couple now hopes to raise awareness about pancreatic cancer symptoms and urge others to go for cancer screenings.
