"Love Island" star Chris Hughes" brother - who underwent a successful operation to have his testicle removed last week - has revealed the results from his CT scan showed his testicular cancer hasn't spread to other parts of his body, and he has vowed to "keep fighting the horrible disease".

He wrote on Instagram: "It's been a very long couple of weeks!! But so MANY positives to be taken from it. My operation went really well and the surgeon was pleased with it! The CT and bloods came back showing that the cancer hasn't spread.

"I'm just having a few weeks rest on the sofa being looked after by family and friends, watching a lot of day time tv!!! Thank you everyone for all your support and messages it is what has kept me going reading them all!! I will keep fighting this horrible disease!! (sic)"

Ben found out earlier this month he had testicular cancer after discovering a lump hours after Chris underwent a live TV testicular examination on "This Morning".

Just 10 minutes before his operation, he shared a black-and-white video of himself, in which he said: "The next time I speak to you guys will be when I have woken up."

A week before the op, Ben revealed he was set to go under the knife to have his testicle removed.

He said at the time: "I've just got a nut-sized ball on my testicle. Quite large.

"I had a CT scan and I haven't picked the results as of yet, and I will then find out if the cancer has spread into any other parts of my body. Fingers crossed it hasn't spread.

"I'm booked in for my operation next Wednesday to remove the testicle, so I'm just wanting these CT scans to come back good and I can get this out."

What's more, Ben was recently told his sperm count was "very negative" after he underwent some tests ahead of freezing his sperm.

He explained: "I did my first sperm banking the day before yesterday and my doctor rang me that evening and said, "I think you should know, the tests we did on your sperm weren't great. Your semen sample came back with a very negative sperm count, if any at all." "
