Grant Stott thanked for 'saving listener's life'
TV presenter Grant Stott has told of his emotion after a man with prostate cancer called his radio show to thank him for saving his life.
The former Scotsport presenter, who starred alongside Dundee United manager Craig Levein and Scotland rugby ace Craig Paterson in a cheeky campaign to raise awareness of prostate disease, said: "I was presenting my radio show on Forth One when a man called in and said he had to thank me.
"He had been listening to the show a few weeks earlier when I had been talking about making the ad. I had been talking about how funny it was and how people should log on and have a look.
"This guy said he had done just that, and that what we said about some of the symptoms of prostate disease had hit home.
"As a direct result he had gone to his doctor and after tests he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. He said the doctors have told him that he has the disease at an early stage and are confident he will make a full recovery."
