Jimmy Tarbuck, one of Britain's most loved comedians has been diagnosed with Prostate Cancer
Liverpudlian Comedian Jimmy Tarbuck has revealed he has been diagnosed with prostate cancer.
The veteran Liverpudlian comic told ITV’s Good Morning Britain he would “try and beat it”. Tarbuck said he received the diagnosis the day after his 80th birthday earlier this month.
“Right now I feel great. I’m on the telly and I’m having a good time,” he said, adding that the cancer had not spread.
He said he had been inspired to get checked by Sir Rod Stewart, who announced in September that he had received treatment for prostate cancer.
He said men can be too “shy” to get tested, but urged them not to put it off. “Boys, go. It is embarrassing. Especially when the fella said to me ‘We’re going to give you the thumbs up’. I said ‘I hope not’. He roared laughing.”
