Popular weatherman ‘Dancing’ Des Coleman is urging men not to put off getting checked for prostate cancer until a rainy day.
Keeping a check on the weather is not the only thing Des Coleman is good at. A winner of 2 Royal Television Society awards, the ITV Central weather presenter, West End singer and actor, who played the part of Lenny Wallace in BBC’s EastEnders, has won three separate battles with cancer following early diagnosis.
In a bid to encourage other men to seek help, Des is supporting the #PlayDominoTalkProstate initiative launched by the Leicester-based Centre for BME Health.
In a short YouTube vlog, the Derby-born performer praises the campaign launched by Pamela Campbell-Morris, the Project Initiator and Community Champion at the Centre for BME Health, and urged men, particularly African Caribbean men, to not ignore the warning signs.
