Stephen Fry has announced that he has prostate cancer in a video posted on his site.
The celebrated comedian, actor, writer and presenter posted a video entitled “something rather mischievous” online, explaining that doctors discovered the tumour during a routine check-up.
Fry, who appears upbeat in the video, said he had a gleason score score of eight, which is high enough to warrant some form of treatment.
He had an operation in the first week of January to remove his prostate and has recovered well.
