In the run-up to Father's Day, ITV is running a campaign with charity Prostate Cancer UK to raise awareness of the disease, which kills at least one man every hour.
Bill Arthur was diagnosed with prostate cancer after a routine medical examination.
The 56-year-old, who lives in Newark in Nottinghamshire, had shown no symptoms and thought he was fit and healthy.
Bill, who works as a Rugby League presenter, is now undergoing a two year treatment plan.
He wants to use his story to encourage more men to go to the doctors and be tested.
