He was delighted to learn on Thursday that he is suitable for the treatment, leaving him ‘over-the-moon’.
The 48-year-old said: “They’ve accepted my treatment and I will be going in either this week or next week, and it’s absolutely brilliant news.
“If I had chosen to go down the chemotherapy and surgery route I was facing the prospect of losing my voice-box and my throut glands and I could not have lived without being able to communicate with other people – what is important is my quality of life, however long that might be.
