Beth was first diagnosed with throat cancer in 2017, which she later beat. Sadly, her illness returned again last year and she underwent emergency surgery in November 2018 to remove a tumour from her throat.

In April, she was reportedly hospitalised after having difficulty breathing, and was “resting at home” after the incident.

The Chapman family are known for their bounty hunting and bail bonds business which features on hit A&E show Dog The Bounty Hunter.
