He joined Lorraine Kelly on Monday morning to discuss his recent diagnosis of prostate cancer. Paul explained he had received the news last year after a full health check and explained he has been feeling “emotional” after starting his latest treatment for the cancer.

Ahead of his appearance on Lorraine, the host told viewers he would be talking about some “life-changing” news.

The ITV host told viewers: “Paul Burrell will be here with life-changing news.

“He’ll be sharing his cancer news for the first time in the hope that he’ll help others.”

Welcoming him to the show, Lorraine asked how he was feeling to which Paul explained: “I am tired, I am on hormone therapy and it is robbing me of my testosterone.

“I am emotional and I have hot flushes. In the summer I had to go for medical for a TV programme I was doing.

“I had a full MOT and out of that, I had a surprisingly high PCA test. I went to my GP, and he examined me and said ‘You seem to be fairly normal’.

“He sent me for an MRI and it was during the MRI scan was a window in which they saw a shadow on my prostate.

“Having the biopsy and wrapping Christmas presents last year thinking ‘Am I going to be doing this next year?’

“I was really lucky they caught it at the beginning and I got lucky. I went over to America to tell my boys and they held me and said, ‘Dad, we need to spend more time with you.’ And that’s what it’s about.”

Paul is well-known for being the royal butler of the late Princess Diana.

He went on to appear in the 2004 series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! and has also appeared on Stars in their Eyes.

Lorraine airs weekdays on ITV from 9am.
