The 51-year-old star explained the diagnosis on social media to friends, family and fans of his music. A post on his Facebook page read: “I’ve been diagnosed with terminal cancer, the doctor said it could be a matter of months. I apologise for not telling all of my family and friends individually, it just breaks my heart a thousand times and I don’t have the strength to go through it all over and over again. I love you all, the last ten years have been the best of them all, it really has been wonderful.
“Forgive me if I don’t answer your calls and messages, I’m still processing, even this post feels like someone else is writing it….
“Love, that’s all we ever really have, our one true currency, so tell the ones around you what they mean to you, every day.”
The post has over 3,000 comments with fellow DJs George Bowie and Michael Kilkie among friends offering support to the family on social media. George Bowie wrote: “Can’t imagine what you and the family are going through mate. Absolutely broken by this news.”
