Exclusive Western Mail Feature

In advance of Mike Peters’ 30th anniversary show at the Wales Millennium Centre concert in Cardiff this weekend, WalesOnline journalist David Owens sat down with Mike for an emotional and honest interview to discuss the news of his latest cancer fight, the effect on his family and the many trials and tribulations he has faced throughout his life – both professionally and personally.

“I was not expecting my consultant to say your count has doubled and we’re going to have to change tack. It was tough for Jules, she was devastated. When Dr Edwards said we’re going to have to change the way we look at your disease, we’re going to have to look at another treatment plan and other options. When anyone says that it’s put in the nicest possible way, but everything says danger – then you immediately think about your children and you think about your music, you think about the life you’ve built. And if that’s going to change. Then you get to grips with it and all your survival instincts kick in.” Mike Peters.
