Chris Evans went for a colonoscopy yesterday to check for the early signs of bowel cancer and to have several pre-cancerous growths removed. On today's Radio 2 Breakfast Show, he urged all men to get themselves checked. "Please if you or anyone you know may have any worries down below, get them checked as soon as poss. This type of enemy is one hundred per cent beatable - providing you don't give it a chance to fire the first shot".
