The TV personality underwent a five-hour procedure just before Christmas to remove a tumour from his pituitary gland.

It was after doctors said it threatened to “blank out” his optic nerve.

At the time it was reported that Grant was not allowed to blow his nose or sneeze for six months to avoid disturbing the area.

He also cannot travel for six months as part of his post-op recovery.

The pituitary gland is a small structure, about the size of a pea, attached to the base of the brain behind the nose.

It lies in a small hollow in the skull, just below the eye, where it is protected by a part of the skull called the sphenoid bone.

Russell finished eighth on the ninth series of Strictly in 2011, but his time on the Latin and ballroom show was hampered by a knee issue.

After rumours that Russell might exit the show early because of the injury, it was confirmed he would postpone any surgery until after the show.
