After pushing for further tests and a biopsy, the former Strictly pro said his dad was told he has a cancerous tumour.
The professional dancer added: “It was what I had dreaded, my dad has a tumour and after having a biopsy it’s come back that it’s an aggressive cancerous one. The worst kind unfortunately.
“We have been told that it’s not advisable to operate because of where the tumour is and wouldn’t actually make that much difference even if they could.
“The end result is, it’s terminal.”
