TV star Len Goodman has undergone a skin cancer operation
Len Goodman has undergone a skin cancer operation.
The 76-year-old TV star – who used to be the head judge on 'Strictly Come Dancing' – had surgery earlier this month on his forehead and has recently been seen sporting a bandage on his face.
A source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "Len is recovering well. It was obviously a shock but he didn't waste any time in getting it treated.
"He is now urging fans to wear sun lotion, especially as the weather has been so hot, and to check any moles they're worried about with a doctor."
Len was seen wearing a bandage while playing a round of golf earlier this month.
At the time, a picture of the star was captured by The Melanoma Fund, the cancer charity.
The organisation's website captioned the image: "Len Goodman has asked us to keep 'spreading the word' re sun protection for golf.
"He wanted us to use this image to inspire others to take the issue seriously."
Meanwhile, Len previously revealed he was "getting out and doing things" amid coronavirus pandemic.
Despite this, Len also admitted to being unsure about the government's advice.
He said: "I'm probably not clear [on what to do].
"However, I've made it clear in my own mind and I'm not gonna go down pubs, I'm not gonna go anywhere where there's gangs of people.
"I had a nice walk out in the garden, over the weekend I met my son and his wife and my grandchildren in a park, we kept a safe distance. I don't mean 100 yards away but we had a little chat, I didn't kiss and cuddle anyone.
"I got myself out and about in a safe way as far as I'm concerned."
