Only Fools and Horses star Patrick Murray has said his lung cancer is cured and has thanked Sir David Jason for his support.
The 65-year-old, who appeared in 20 episodes of the beloved sitcom as Mickey Pearce, said he was “over the moon” at the news, adding that a tumour in his liver is “shrinking” in response to treatment.
He told the Sun newspaper: “I don’t drink now so I’m not going down the pub to celebrate — a salad and a sparkling water is more my thing.
“I’ve had so many messages from my old Only Fools pals, like David Jason, when I revealed me diagnoses. I was really touched by that.”
The star was first diagnosed with cancer in July last year and revealed the news to fans earlier this year.
During the chemo, another tumour was discovered in his liver, he said, but luckily, it was unconnected to the lung cancer and treatable.
“Last friday l saw my oncologist. She told me the lung cancer was cured and that the tumour in my liver was shrinking,” he said.
“It's not over yet, but as you can imagine I am over the moon with this latest news.”
