Christopher Biggins has had open heart surgery.
The panto legend and TV star had to have a new valve inserted into his heart after a recent scare, and he now realises that life is very "shallow".
He said: "I’m like the bionic man. I’ve had a new knee put in and I’ve had a new valve put into my heart. It’s not easy getting old!"
Biggins, 72 - who has entertained audiences for decades and went down a storm as the winner of 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' in 2007 - was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes back in 2010 and opened up about the grim realisation that life is precious.
He is quoted by The Sun newspaper as saying: "As you get older, the things you go to – apart from restaurants and theatres – are funerals and memorial services. It makes you aware that life is very shallow. It’s not easy. You never know when you’re going to go."
The 'Celebrity Big Brother' star candidly spoke of how he is always trying to do something about his weight.
He said: "I’ve always been aware of being a big boy — aware of my weight and looking at going on diets.”
Earlier this month, Biggins claimed the cork hat he wore on 'I'm A Celebrity' - when he was crowned King of the Jungle in 2007 - had been "stolen", and he is "very sad" he doesn't have the iconic headgear any more.
He said: “That lovely hat was stolen from me, which I’m very sad about."
