He made an appearance at an event for the Prostate Project and golf’s European Tour Foundation alongside former Faces bandmates Kenney Jones and Ronnie Wood.

Stewart said, according to the Mirror: “No-one knows this, but I thought this was about time I told everybody. I’m in the clear, now, simply because I caught it early. I have so many tests.”

He joked to wife Penny Lancaster that he was going to “come out” that evening, sharing: “It’s not what you think. Two years ago I was diagnosed with prostate cancer.”
