Sir Rod Stewart cancer-free after two years of secrecy

SIR ROD STEWART has revealed he is free from prostate cancer after some two years of secret treatment.

The 74-year-old singer (pictured) was given the all-clear in July after his cancer was diagnosed in its early stages in 2017.

Sir Rod went public with his illness during a fundraising event for the Prostate Project and European Tour Foundation charity in Surrey this weekend.

Speaking alongside his former Faces bandmates Kenney Jones and Ronnie Wood, Sir Rod urged all men to get regular check-ups.

The singer said regular tests had helped him identify his cancer early, improving his chances of remission.

According to the Mirror, he told the audience: ‘Guys, you’ve got to really go to the doctor. Finger up the bum, no harm done.

‘No one knows this, but I thought this was about time I told everybody.

‘I’m in the clear, now, simply because I caught it early. I have so many tests.’

The Maggie May singer’s wife Penny Lancaster cracked a joke about the nature of his announcement.

The model and TV personality, 48, said: ‘Tonight would be a nice night to come out of the closet.’

He replied: ‘No, it’s not what you think. Two years ago I was diagnosed with prostate cancer.’

Dad-of-eight Sir Rod added that he got through his treatment by staying positive and smiling.
