Love Island star Chris Hughes has received widespread praise for bravely undergoing a testicular examination live on a U.K. morning television show.
The 25-year-old joined the hosts of This Morning to help raise awareness of testicular cancer and other related issues.
After opening his robe, Chris showed off a long scar on his own testicle as he detailed his own health scare.
“I was around 14 and I noticed like a build up of veins and eventually got it looked at [six years later, aged 20] and they referred to hospitals and I ended up having three operations on my left testicle, and that was more down to safety with infertility, because the veins take oxygen,” he said before Dr Chris Steele demonstrated how an examination takes place.

“My sperm count was quite low, I have had a hydrocele. I have had four operations on them.”
Chris received a ton of positive feedback for his live television exam, with one person tweeting “Fair play Chris, you got some balls getting up there live on TV. (No pun intended).”
