Sir John Hurt has revealed that he has been given the all-clear from pancreatic cancer.
Speaking at the Man Booker Prize ceremony, the actor confirmed he has been given the all-clear by his doctors, though he admit that he remains wary of using the word “remission”, even if that is the case.
‘I had a final scan and it’s all gone brilliantly. I had the final scan yesterday and I saw my oncologist this morning.
‘I am overjoyed, I am thrilled. It all looks great for the future, it’s fantastic.’
Hurt is due to appear at Showmasters’ Film & Comic Con Brighton on November 7 and 8.
