Eastenders Gillian Taylforth Heartache As Fiancé Cancer Spreads

Gillian Taylforth may have made a dramatic return to Albert Square but it is nothing compared to the drama in the Eastenders star's personal life.

Her fiancé Dave Fairbairn, is facing an anxious wait after doctors discovered abnormalities between his prostate and bowel and there are fears that his cancer may have spread.

"Dave is trying to remain as upbeat as possible," said a source that was close to the couple, "He is going into hospital on Thursday for a colonoscopy and is hoping to get the all clear. However, at the back of his mind, he is concerned the cancer may have spread beyond his prostate."

This would prove a real setback for him after it was hoped that he would be in remission by the end of the year.

"Throughout his cancer battle, Dave has always remained optimistic – and so far that attitude has helped him through one of the toughest ordeals of his life."

Gillian has already faced a losing battle against cancer when her her ex-partner Geoff Knights died in November 2013 due to stomach cancer. This left her and their children Jessica, 23, and Harrison, 16, devastated.

Gillian said, earlier this year: "It's been very difficult for the children. You learn to hate the word. It's frightening – it really is – but research is getting good now and you have to always think onwards and upwards
