Comedian Billy Connolly has revealed how he was diagnosed with prostate cancer and Parkinson's disease on the same day.
Speaking on the ITV documentary Billy Connolly's Big Send Off, the 71-year-old recalls the "funny week" in which he received news of the double diagnosis.
"On the Monday I got hearing aids, on the Tuesday I got pills for heartburn which I have to take all the time. And on the Wednesday I got news that I had prostate cancer and Parkinson's disease," he says.
Connolly, who been given the all-clear after treatment for prostate cancer, also says he was "angry" at suggestions that drugs to combat Parkinson's had led to him forgetting things on stage.
"I've lost my train of thought all (through) my career! It's what makes me different from everybody else," he argues.
Billy Connolly's Big Send Off airs on May 7th at 9pm on ITV1
