Chris and his brother Ben

When was Chris Hughes’ brother Ben diagnosed with testicular cancer?

In January 2019, Chris revealed his brother Ben has been diagnosed with testicular cancer after he took part in a live TV exam on This Morning.

Chris wanted to help raise awareness but sadly he took to Instagram to reveal the disease had struck much closer to home than he could have ever expected.

The sad news came after Chris shed his clothes to raise awareness.

This led to his brother checking himself up and finding a lump.

The lump, unfortunately, turned out to be testicular cancer, but his brother was thankful for his brother’s TV segment which revealed the news to him.

What is Chris’ connection to Katie Price?

Katie and Chris’s relationship started off flirty, but they well and truly fell out over a heated debate on Twitter.

After joking that Chris could be “husband number four” on Loose Women, Katie and Chris exchanged messages on Whatsapp.

While she denied the messages, Chris posted the texts on Twitter with the caption: “Okay sweetheart. Being pied shouldn’t make you bitter.”

However, the former glamour model sensationally exposed him by showing some of the messages he sent her on Snapchat.

The Love Island star revealed he has met Katie several times since their bitter feud and is now good friends with Katie.
