The cancer was discovered when on Sunday he went to hospital with a migraine, before being rushed into surgery.

He told Daily Mail: 'I am on the mend and feeling positive. Keep me in your thoughts.'


He is awaiting results to see if the tumour is benign or malignant.

Wishing Johnny a fast recovery!
