Stephen Fry has announced that he has been battling prostate cancer.

The TV presenter shared a video on his Twitter page and wrote in the caption: "For the last 2 months I've been in the throes of a rather unwelcome and unexpected adventure.

"I'm sorry I haven't felt able to talk about it till now, but here I am explaining what has been going on."

Fry said that he underwent surgery to remove the prostate in January.

He said: "It all seemed to go pretty well, they took the prostate out, they took out 11 lymph nodes."

Fry, who pulled out of presenting the Bafta Film awards for the first time in years earlier this month, described the cancer as an "aggressive little bugger".
