First Dates’ Merlin Griffiths talks about bowel cancer in 2021

First Dates star Merlin Griffiths has been seen for the first time after undergoing surgery to remove the tumor following a diagnosis of stage three bowel cancer.

The Channel 4 star, 47, appeared in high spirits at the launch of Royal Ascot’s first discount and alcohol-free bar on Tuesday.

Merlin attended the lively event as part of Harrogate Spring Water’s Mindful Drinking Mission.

After his recent surgery, Merlin seems to be in good spirits. Merlin beamed next to former island resident Alex as the couple posed for promotional photos.

The First Dates star is back to normal and taking part in events after he was discharged from the hospital just six days ago.

Late last year, Merlin revealed his stage three bowel cancer diagnosis – and he’s been updating fans ever since.

The beloved TV star recently thanked the NHS for ‘literally saving his life’ after undergoing ‘robot’ surgery.

In the midst of his battle with bowel cancer, Merlin shared a selfie from his hospital bed as he admitted he was suffering from ‘pain and pain’.

“Thank you #NHS for literally saving my life. #BowelCancerAwarenessMonth,” he wrote at the time.

“It’s 2 am. Tubes are coming out everywhere. Pain and soreness. But no tumors! #Bowelcancerawarenessmonth.”

Last year, Merlin was told by doctors he had a 75% chance of living for more than five years after discovering his diagnosis.

The star received his diagnosis from Northampton General Hospital, at the time he said he was trying to keep a ‘positive outlook’.

Speaking to the Sunday Mirror, Merlin said: “I still have that positive attitude, but I have a sense of humour.

The couple have been together for more than a decade.
