Stephen Fry has announced that he is receiving treatment for prostate cancer.

The actor and writer revealed the news in a video message on his personal blog on Friday.

He underwent surgery to remove his prostate and 11 lymph nodes before Christmas after being diagnosed following a full health check-up by his doctor, who he had booked an appointment with to receive a flu jab.

Surgery is said to have gone well, with doctors telling him: “It’s all been got.”

Introducing the link to his blog on Twitter, Mr Fry, 60, wrote: “For the last 2 months I’ve been in the throes of a rather unwelcome and unexpected adventure.

“I’m sorry I haven’t felt able to talk about it till now, but here I am explaining what has been going on.”

The former QI presenter – who stepped down from his BAFTA hosting role last month – said his health was the reason he had retreated from the public eye in recent months.
