WILDLIFE SOS star Simon Cowell has been given a devastating terminal cancer diagnosis.
The 70-year-old was told in June that he’s suffering from an “aggressive” form of lung cancer.
Doctors don’t know how long he’s got left – saying it could be “weeks or months”.
The conservationist underwent chemotherapy last month – and has since spoken out about his cancer battle.
Speaking to SurreyLive, Simon said: “I spent the first week in panic mode, not knowing what to do. Then I thought, you can either bend to it or knuckle down and get on with things.
“They have given me no idea of the timescale. It could be weeks; it could be years.
“Until we have gone through the chemo we don’t know what’s going on. But I shall remain positive.”
Simon’s sad diagnosis was delivered by Simon’s Wildlife Aid Foundation.
Throughout the past four decades of his career, the conservationist has made the foundation one of the UK’s busiest wildlife rescue charities.
His foundation shared the devastating news about the star’s health revealing that at the end of June Simon found out he had terminal lung cancer.
