Veteran Welsh entertainer Max Boyce feels he has been given a second chance at life after undergoing major heart surgery.
The singer/funnyman, 70, had a quadruple heart bypass last month (Jun14) and he has praised doctors at a hospital in Cardiff, Wales for the successful operation.
He tells Walesonline.co.uk, "I feel like I've been given a second chance at life."
Boyce has axed a 13-date tour scheduled for later this year (14) to recover. He hopes to be back onstage next year (15).
The BBC drama starring Aidan Turner returns to BBC One on September 4th.
