Broadcaster Danny Baker has revealed that he has cancer.
The Radio 5 Live host, who has also presented shows on Radio 1 and Radio 2, yesterday told fans that he is about to begin chemotherapy.
The 53-year-old explained in an online statement why he had been absent from his regular Saturday programme.
He apologised for keeping his illness under wraps over the past few weeks but appeared to be remaining upbeat.
Baker, who is also a scriptwriter for his friend Chris Evans, said he had been ‘watching Tommy Steele box sets’.
He added: ‘As it appears this is going to continue for the foreseeable, I really ought to offer up some sort of breadcrumbs trail as to what’s going on – as you know I am queasy about introducing vulgar real life on to the vaudeville stage so let’s keep this crisp.
‘After a pretty mouldy diagnosis about a month back, I finally begin chemotherapy on Monday with further radiotherapy from January. Yes, radiotherapy; can you beat it?’
But he continued: ‘Once the quacks have soundly thrashed this thing I shall return like a rare gas and as if out of a trap.’
He urged his listeners to ‘keep yakking up a storm and laugh extra loud’ at the guest presenters on his shows during his absence.
