Only Fools And Horses’ Patrick Murray ‘cured’ of lung cancer as ‘tumour found in liver’ | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Patrick Murray took to social media today to share the news he had been “cured” of lung cancer. The Only Fools And Horses actor also revealed another tumour had been found in his liver, but that it was luckily considered “treatable”. 

Patrick, 65, told fans he was “over the moon” that his lung cancer had been “cured” and the tumour in his liver was also “shrinking”. 

The star’s cancerous lung tumour was caught in its early stages at the beginning of this year when he had some scans.

Patrick underwent surgery, as well as chemotherapy, to remove the tumour. 

During his treatment, another tumour was discovered in his liver, but doctors confirmed it was “treatable”.

“It’s not over yet, but as you can imagine I am over the moon with this latest news,” the actor shared.

Patrick then went on to thank the “brilliant” doctors and nurses of the NHS for all they have done.

“I will hopefully be there, at next year’s convention,” he concluded, referring to the annual Only Fools And Horses convention.

Patrick, who played the character Mickey Pearce in the iconic BBC sitcom, left fans devastated when he first shared the news of his cancer back in January.

Admitting he had “wanted to keep his own health problems private”, he tweeted: “Thanks to my ultrascan I have a fighting chance. 

“It showed my organs needed further investigation and tumours were spotted. This led to a PET scan which covers a much larger area.

“To my wonderful surprise these lesions were not cancerous but the scan did find an early-stage cancerous tumour in my lung. This has since been removed.

“I am tweeting now, which wouldn’t be the case if I hadn’t had the ultrasound all those months ago.

“A lot of people put these symptoms down to age and the discomfort to simply having a weak stomach.

“Please don’t ignore it if it persists. As for me, and thanks to the NHS, I can now see the same beautiful horizon as you.”

Here’s What Mick Jagger Really Thinks About Harry Styles

Harry Styles is no Mick Jagger, according to Mick Jagger.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, posted May 22, the legendary Rolling Stones frontman, 78, was asked about the idea that he inspired the 28-year-old pop star, whose style has drawn comparisons to Jagger’s early-’70s look.

“I like Harry — we have an easy relationship,” the veteran rocker told the newspaper. “I mean, I used to wear a lot more eye make-up than him.”

Jagger continued, “Come on, I was much more androgynous. And he doesn’t have a voice like mine or move on stage like me; he just has a superficial resemblance to my younger self, which is fine — he can’t help that.”

In 2015, Jagger complimented Styles in an interview with The Mail on Sunday‘s Event magazine. “He’s got it going on,” Jagger said. “I know him, he comes to see me in lots of shows. And yeah, I can see the influence. But I don’t say anything to him, I just tell him he looks nice. I like him. He’s very decent.”

Gemma recently admitted to Vicky Pattison on The Secret To podcast how distance sometimes made things difficult with Gorka. 

“He is lovely but, without sounding awful, we don’t see each other all day every day and it has been like that from the start,” she admitted. 

“I think the longest that we have gone apart was about 16 weeks – that was during the Strictly lockdown.”

Host Vicky then probed whether the couple find long-distance hard, to which Gemma replied: “For me, it went quick because I had Mia. But [Gorka] really struggled.”

Ulrika Jonsson ‘wanted to end life’ when she was too unwell to care for young son | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Ulrika Jonsson, 54, said that she once “hated” her life because she was “consumed” by agonising pain. The presenter has suffered with excruciating back pain for the past 15 years which got so bad that she could not be left alone with her young son because she feared she would drop him.

Ulrika has four children: Cameron, 27, Bo, 22, Martha, 17, and Malcolm, 13.

She had to be prescribed strong painkillers and epidural injections, but even then, her pain did not completely go away.

When her health was at an all-time low, Ulrika confesses that she felt “consumed” by the pain and “hated life”.

She described: “I felt I was going insane. I hated people because no one understood that I was consumed by pain.”

Ulrika recalled two “extremely low points” which included struggling to care for her son, who was just two-years-old at the time.

She continued in her column for The Sun: “I couldn’t be left alone with my son because if he fell over or hurt himself, I was incapable of lifting him up or going to his aid.

“He would often have to be brought to me in bed so I could spend time with him because at times I struggled to move.”

Ulrika says that it got to a point where she “didn’t want to go on with life”.

Arthritis is a common condition that causes pain and inflammation in a joint.

Treatments include medication, lifestyle changes and surgery in the more severe cases.

She was diagnosed with the condition in both of her hips four years ago and reveals that she is now “nearing” the need for a hip replacement.

The condition means she struggles to get out of bed or to stand up for long periods.

Despite her pain, she wants to delay the need for a hip replacement for as long as possible.

She told MailOnline: “I’ve got a couple of friends who have had hip replacements and they’re a bit older than me and I just thought that’s not really something I want to be contemplating already.

“It definitely was one of those things where you go ‘it’s a slippery slope to old age…This is a sign that my body is falling apart.”

Abba star Bjorn Ulvaeus reveals self-doubt that PLAGUED his 50-year career | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Appearing as a hi-tech Abbatar, the songwriter, 77, is back on stage with his bandmates this week after more than 40 years away. But the Swedish maestro says that despite fan adoration, 400 million records sold and 17 number ones, theVoyage project is something he is finally proud of.

The Grammy winner revealed how the band’s magic returned in less than a minute as they recorded new material for the first time since 1982.

However, he admits that Abba are not going to reunite for real, as it is “too much hassle” to be “geriatric pop stars”.

Abba’sVoyage avatars, accompanied by a 10-piece live band, will be launched at the custombuilt Abba Arena in London from Friday.

The show is expected to be a commercial success – but Ulvaeus said it’s a personal one, too.

He explained: “I am always plagued by a bad self-consciousness, unsure of myself, and writing [Voyage] has made me a better songwriter and lyricist and made me believe in myself more. It has given me creatively a lot lately I am feeling confident.”

Reuniting to make music after settling on the pioneering avatar idea was “very emotional” for all four members, he said. He told Sirius’ NPR radio: “Benny [Andersson] and I thought now that we have these avatars why don’t we write a couple of new songs for them.We called the ladies and asked if they were up to recording again. And they said, ‘Of course’.”

Describing the studio sessions, Ulvaeus said: “It was really great fun.The last time we did that was in winter 1982.We wrote these songs and it was such great fun to be together in the studio again. It was all four of us like before.

“It took 15 seconds or half a minute to come back into 1982 again. It was very emotional.

“You suddenly realise, the bond that we have, the things we had done and what we had together is incredible, especially in view of the fact that we thought a couple of years after we split up we would be forgotten.

“And here we are. And we have a reason to be here.That was just amazing.”

‘Big bone of contention’ Rachel Weisz ‘begged’ Daniel Craig to ditch James Bond stunts | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Rachel Weisz, 52, began dating Daniel Craig, 54, in 2010, after being friends for a number of years. As The Mummy plays tonight, Rachel has previously been reported as the reason behind why her husband Daniel started to take it easy when doing the stunts for the James Bond films.

Daniel has been one of the most successful James Bonds starring in a total of five films.

His last and final reprisal of the role in No Time To Die was released last year after Covid delays.

Despite the actor performing many of his own stunts, it has been reported that in the last few films he took a step back after his wife Rachel expressed her concerns for his safety.

A source claimed: “It’s a big bone of contention. Rachel doesn’t want him in agony again.

Rachel shares her son Henry, 15, with her ex partner Darren Aronofsky.

As the Bond days may be over for Daniel, Rachel has been busy filming TV series Dead Ringers for the past few months.

Rachel counts herself lucky as filming for the new series takes place very close to the couple’s home in New York.

The couple previously lived in an $11.5 million Soho penthouse purchased in 2012 after Daniel sold a Tribeca pad.

Andrew Marr on life after his stroke: My family were told to prepare for worst | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

The broadcaster had “stupidly ignored” two mini-strokes then tackled a rowing machine target more suited to a young professional athlete. Andrew, 62, who began work for radio company Global earlier this year after 21 years at the BBC, said: “It was something like to row five miles in 40 minutes or whatever it might be. One of my physios later said, ‘That’s what a very fit professional athlete in their 20s should be heading for – you were mad’.

“I can remember very vividly hitting my target and immediately feeling very sick and dizzy, and seeing sort of flashing lights.

“I woke up the next morning lying on the floor. I was paralysed down the left side. I looked in the mirror and I had that sort of mouth that came right down at the side.”

Andrew, married to journalist Jackie Ashley, with whom he has a son Harry and two daughters Emily and Isabel, added: “I woke up Jackie and said ‘I think I’ve had a stroke’, and she screamed. I was taken to hospital and what follows, pretty grim, but they saved my life.”

After the operation, “I came round not feeling great, probably about a day later, and in that period my wife and kids had been taken into a room and told I wasn’t going to make it, and to prepare themselves that I was going to die.

“Some time afterwards, they were told ‘We think he might make it but if he does he’ll be in a wheelchair for the rest of his life and we don’t know how much cognition he’ll have’. And so when I woke up and I was myself they were pretty relieved.

“At the end of it all, the doctor said ‘Mr Marr, this bit hasn’t really worked, we haven’t been able to do what we wanted to do but we’ve got drugs that will work’.”

Andrew had months of tough physio and speech therapy after the 2013 stroke, and had to adapt his recording methods when he went back to fronting his BBC show.

“If there was a long sentence I couldn’t get the air at the end of it, so I had to start recording the tops of the show because I would run out of puff otherwise.

“David Cameron did me a huge favour. He agreed to be interviewed and was gracious enough to give me news lines and it was all very successful.”

Speaking on the Crisis What Crisis? podcast, he told Andy Coulson that family, whisky, music, painting, the sky and walking in nature are the things that now calm him down.

Karren Brady says it’s a ‘shame’ Jake Daniels has been called ‘brave’ for coming out | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Karren Brady, 53, has shared her thoughts on Jake Daniels, 17, becoming the UK’s first active male professional footballer to come out as gay. While the vice-chairwoman of West Ham thinks that it was a ”landmark moment”, she says it is a “shame” that Jake has been branded “brave”.

She said: “Lots of people I know are talking about how ’brave’ Jake is, which I think is a shame.

“It shouldn’t be brave to say you are gay. It just shouldn’t matter.”

Karren added in her column that the “most remarkable” thing about Jake’s announcement was “how unremarkable” it really was.

She continued in The Sun: “The sky did not cave in. And the world continued to spin on its axis.

“Still, it was a landmark moment for both the game and the LGBTQ+ community when Jake chose to make his statement.”

The Blackpool striker came out publicly on Tuesday, making him the first male professional footballer to do so since Justin Fashanu in 1990.

Jake made the announcement in a statement shared on Blackpool FC’s official website.

It read: “Off the pitch I’ve been hiding the real me and who I really am.

He also named Australian footballer Josh Cavallo, manager Matt Morton and diver Tom Daley as sporting inspirations for his decision to publicly address his sexuality.

Jake has received a wave of support since making his announcement, including from Phillip Schofield, who himself came out as gay in 2020.

Phil praised the footballer on Tuesday’s This Morning, saying: “What you want now is this football tribal family to show an enormous amount of support – and the word ‘neanderthal’ was used for some football spectators whose views, you know, are still in the dark ages.

“Look at your sport, look at the beauty of your sport, look at your players and supporting them. 

“Of course, there’s always going to be sort of ribbing people and having a go.
 
“But this is the time to say, ‘Right okay, let’s not go for him.”
