The Radio 2 legend was diagnosed with the early stages of skin cancer last summer - but he has since been given the all clear, just eight weeks after his diagnosis

Chris Evans has candidly discussed his recent skin cancer battle, revealing he now cherishes the "proud scar" left after having melanoma removed. The 58-year-old radio veteran received the all-clear just eight weeks after being diagnosed last August, a testament to early detection.

He went on to express his gratitude for the life-saving mark: "I love my scar, because the scar led me to a sunnier tomorrow, and I'm still in that tomorrow today, and it's a wonderful place to be." Evans didn't shy away from discussing the importance of vigilant skin care, especially after his experience: "My dermatologist, she says from now on I always have to wear skin protection if any of my skin is naked because I'm so susceptible."

The broadcaster is also preparing for a family getaway with suitable precautions: "We go on a holiday on Sunday, we're going to Portugal. And so my long-sleeve UV tops arrived, last night we tried them on. Is that all good? Because I still want to go swimming with the kids."
