Jake was diagnosed with prostate cancer a few months ago, which spread to the rest of his body and saw tumours on his spine and hips. 

He told The Liverpool Echo in July: “I was working but I wasn’t feeling well.

“I was pushing through those spells when you don’t feel yourself, you haven’t got the energy and there are aches and pains.”

He continued: “What made me go to the doctor and get a PSA (prostate-specific antigen) test was that I passed blood in my urine. I got a test and ended up in the Royal.

“He said ‘you’ve got cancer, I’m so, so sorry’. He said that I’d had it for years, maybe four years.”

he added: “Doctors have told me it could be months, it could be years. It’s frightening.

“It’s scary, to be confronted with your own mortality is the most scary thing you’ll ever go through.

“To prepare for that and be cognitive mentally, but knowing that’s what’s coming, it’s tough.”

Jake is best known for his role in the gritty 1998 film Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.
