Love Island star Chris Hughes has been praised, after a live testicular examination on This Morning.
The star was raising awareness for testicular cancer and the importance of men getting checked.
Having had his own health scare growing up, finding a build up of veins on his left testicle when he was just 14, Chris joined This Morning’s Dr Chris on the ITV sofas to share his story.
Dr Chris then conducted a live examination on Chris on camera, showing viewers at home the right way for men to check their testicles.
Viewers raced to Twitter over the scenes, praising Kem Cetinay’s pal for being “brave”.
One fan said: “I have got to say total respect to Chris for being so brave on #ThisMorning talking about testicular cancer. I hope it helps men to check and not be so embarrassed.”
Another tweeted: “Well done @chrishughes_22 Such an important issue for men and especially young men. Nothing to be ashamed off. Check yourself and make sure you go to the doctor. Testicular cancer is so curable.”
A third agreed: “Tbf Well done to this guy, he is obviously passionate and knowledgeable about the subject.”
This was echoed by another viewer who said: “So brave of Chris to do that to make men more aware and to encourage them to check themselves regularly! Lots of respect for him!”
A final fan commented: “Fair play to @chrishughes_22 on #ThisMorning doing a live testicular exam to show awareness, banish embarrassment and raise testicular cancer awareness!”
Chris went to see a doctor aged 20 about his own health scare, and after having his sperm frozen he underwent three operations and is now fine.
Opening up on both his brothers being infertile, and his cousin’s battle with testicular cancer, Chris urged viewers at home to check themselves and see a doctor about any concerns.
