The ‘Big Fat Gypsy Wedding’ star originally kept his diagnosis secret but decided to speak out to urge other men to get checked.

He told The Sun newspaper:

“The only people who have known about this are my wife, my brothers and sister. And it was my wife who suggested I should speak out about the condition – she said it might encourage other men to get themselves checked out.

“Men don’t talk about these things – especially travellers. But the bottom line is this – I was in a bad way.

“I started dreading going for a wee because I was having so much trouble passing water. I had to force it out and the pain became excruciating. I wouldn’t inflict it on my worst enemy.

“Then I started passing blood too – lots of it – and I just knew I had to go to see a doctor.

“After several tests, he told me straight: ‘Paddy, you’ve got cancer in your prostate.’ I know people think I’ve got this tough image but I just started stuttering. I couldn’t speak properly – it’s when you hear that word ‘cancer’.”
