Dai Henwood is well known to TV viewers, as a funny guy, but he's been going through some serious stuff. During his 25-year career he's won many major comedy gongs, including the Billy T Award, early in his stand-up days. Dai is a regular on the country's longest running comedy programme, 7 Days - and he's hosted many shows including Family Feud, Dancing with the Stars, and LEGO Masters.

His latest project is a memoir, The Life of Dai, co-written with great friend and fellow comedian Jacqui Brown. The chapters not only cover off a fun career, but tell of facing life through the lens of stage four bowel cancer.
