Radio and Television personality Jeremy Mansfield is battling cancer again.

Mansfield revealed on his Facebook page, saying that he has liver cancer.

"Haven't posted for ages, reason being I've been in hospital battered by tests as I was not feeling 100%. Turns out I have a form of liver cancer," Mansfield wrote.

"Docs not sure which type so I'm back in next week for more biopsies to find the right cell. That way the oncologists can design the right treatment. Been here before.

Mansfield had leukaemia before.

"Kicked leukaemia's ass 13 years ago after 9 months treatment. Don't f#€k with me jou vrot ding! First thing I'm going to do on Monday? Stride into my Mansfield2day office and start creating some of the best damn YouTube content to go onto the tube from 31 January Now THAT'S how you kick back! Attitude baby!"

He currently presents Mansfield2day on his YouTube channel.
