Australian pop star-turned-television presenter Darryl Cotton has been diagnosed with liver cancer.
Cotton, 62, checked into Peter MacCullum Hospital in Melbourne after feeling unwell last month (May12) and underwent tests before doctors informed him he had developed the disease.
Details of his treatment and prognosis are unknown.
The musician was the founding member of rock band Zoot and later wrote music for Engelbert Humperdinck, The Osmonds and The New Seekers before carving out a career in television.
