Gay Byrne is set make his tv return soon, after being out of work due to illness for some time.
The presenter is currently receiving treatment for prostate cancer and is also recovering from a double hip replacement.
Gay will return to our screens with a new series of the much loved show, The Meaning of Life.
The 82-year-old hasn’t worked in TV since January of this year after he revealed his cancer diagnosis.
Pat Kenny, who has long been a friend of the presenter said that he’s delighted to see him back working in TV.
“I haven’t been talking to him for a few weeks,” he admitted to the Irish Mirror.
“He may be in Donegal. He’s on my list of to-dos for August.”
“I’m hoping to see him. I believe he’s doing another Meaning of Life series, so that’s good news.”
In June, the veteran broadcaster said that the doctor had given him good news.
“I have checks all the time and the doctors tell me I’m making progress. I believe them. I have to believe them because I’m looking better,” he told the Irish Sun.
“Everybody is telling me how well I look but I wish I felt as good, look, I guess that’s part the condition I’m suffering from,” he added.
We can’t wait to see him back on our screens.
