Radio Two DJ Chris Evans has revealed that he recently underwent surgery following a bowel cancer scare.
According to The Sun, the BBC star had pre-cancerous tissue removed during a colonoscopy.
He told the newspaper:
"A couple of pesky potential future little problems were discovered and swiftly removed. But other than that Im afraid youre stuck with me for a few years longer at least.
"And please, if you or anyone you know may have any worries down below, get them checked as soon as poss. This type of enemy is one hundred per cent beatable providing you dont give it chance to fire the first shot."
Evans also described the nurses who looked after him as "angels", saying:
"Usual story, everyone here should be paid a million pounds a minute. But of course they're not.
"The angels that gave me my paper underpants before, and made me one of the nicest cups of tea I've ever had afterwards, go by the names Lorraine and Bernie."
Chris was just 13 he lost his father, Martin, to colon cancer.
