Joe Longthorne - Joe Longthorne Is Cancer-free

Veteran British entertainer Joe Longthorne is recovering after undergoing cancer surgery.

The singer was diagnosed with throat cancer earlier this year (14) after doctors found a lump, and he is now in recovery after an operation.

Longthorne faces a tough few weeks as he bounces back from the procedure, but insists he is now cancer-free.

In a video posted on his website, he says, "There's no sign of any more cancer in me. So that's a great thrill. What a chance to be able to say the cancer's gone now. It's just a question of rebuilding. My face for instance is (so swollen) I feel like I've got nine boiled eggs in my mouth. But seriously I'm feeling good. All the prayers and the cards and wishes you've been sending me are truly working, I really do believe that. Thanks a lot."

Longthorne, 58, overcame leukaemia in 2006 after undergoing a bone marrow transplant. He is due to return to the stage in Blackpool, England on Sunday (27Jul14) for a show with fellow British entertainer Darren Day.
