Funnyman Jono Coleman reveals secret cancer battle

STUDIO 10 funnyman Jono Coleman has revealed he has secretly been battling advanced prostate cancer for a year.

Coleman, who is known for his larrikin sense of humour, opened up to Studio 10 and The Australian Women's Weekly about his diagnosis which he has kept secret since he found out in June last year.

He told Studio 10's Sarah Harris everything changed one afternoon when he skipped work drinks to attend a doctor's appointment.

"It's Friday afternoon, you guys are all at the pub having drinks and I've got a man with his finger up my bottom," he said with his trademark humour. "Within five minutes he said 'yes well I can tell you your prostate is enlarged and there's a hard lump so I'd say you've got cancer.

"People say your life starts flashing before you, there was a touch of that, we were like 'okay, what are we going to do, we've got the kids, we've got Oscar and Emily."
