“Right now I’m going through cancer treatment and it’s like another chapter,” he said.
“I went to the doctors and complained about certain little things and the next thing I know I got a phone and said it was a tumor and I’m going to have chemotherapy.”
He continued: “Fortunately, the chemotherapy is working, but it’s the effect that chemotherapy is having on you. Every day is a school day.”

The Hairy Bikers star continued, saying: “My eyes hurt because my eyelashes have fallen out – it’s such a bummer it’s really irritating.”
“But I’ll get there. I have to go tomorrow for another lot. I’m just getting through it,” he said.
He then went on to say he’ll never “whine” about “anything” again.
“‘I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. But once that’s behind me, I’ll never complain about anything again. I will embrace life and all it has to offer,” he said.
“‘I can’t eat garlic right now, the smells are really pungent, it’s all out of hand. I was told it will come back.”
He then went on to say that he now has a craving for Vimto and Cottage Pie.
