The presenter, 47, has taken a break from recording his long-running ITV daytime show to receive treatment for a growth that was discovered before Christmas.

The Facebook statement said that it had been a "really tough couple of months for him and his family" but that he is "now on the mend".

An ITV spokeswoman said: "We hope that he is back on his feet soon and look forward to him returning to work when he is ready."
