The comedian, known for his work with Vic Reeves, described the surgery as a “big moment” in his life, and he’s centred his recently published autobiography around it.
He continued: “It made me look back to the past and also think about what my future might be.”
So how is he doing now? He added: “It’s been good, I’ve got new pipes.
“I talk about it a lot, my heart problems, but when I came out of hospital I felt very unsure what the future was for someone who’s had this surgery.
