The creator of one of Ireland's best-loved comedies says he's getting treatment for testicular cancer.

Graham Linehan - who's behind Father Ted, Black Books and The IT Crowd - made the revelation on Twitter, saying he'd had "a bit of bad news".

He's had an operation and will undergo chemotherapy, which he's described as "better than dying".

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">I got a bit of bad news recently. A little touch of the old cancer. Luckily, ball cancer is one of the best ones to have (sorry, ladies!) and they got rid of it all pretty quickly, along with a ball. Bye, ball! I&#39;ll never forget the good times!</p>&mdash; Graham “I didnt say that, though” Linehan (@Glinner) <a href="https://twitter.com/Glinner/status/1011912395789348864?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">June 27, 2018</a></blockquote>
