Only Fools and Horses’ Patrick Murray’s cancer spreads after all-clear

Only Fools and Horses actor, Patrick Murray, 66, shared his doctors are “optimistic” despite the fact that his cancer has “unfortunately” come back.

He is best known for portraying Mickey Pearce in the hit series.

Having previously been diagnosed with lung cancer, he was given the all-clear last year.

He took to Twitter to reveal the update, as he shared his bid to stay upbeat despite the diagnosis.

He shared: “I have been trying to avoid this tweet for a while, but I owe it to my friends to keep you updated.

“Despite all the wonderful efforts by the medical and nursing teams at Medway, Guys, and Kings College hospitals, the lung cancer has returned.

“I thought I had a painful groin strain a couple of months ago, unfortunately that turned out to be the cancer getting into my pelvis and leg bones.”

He continued on the status of the cancer: “It has also entered my lymphatic system.”

However, Patrick went on to share some better news: “I had radiology treatment last week and my oncologist is fairly confident this will stop the leg pain, and I will be up and about again.

“Another positive is my consultant. He is confident that the chemo will keep things in check for months and even years.

“His optimism comes not from kindness of which I know he has in spades but advances in cancer medicine.”

He ended the long message by thanking his fans for their support.

He added: “I am feeling positive with my good wifes awesome support . Luv’n’Hugs.” (sic)
