Singer John Newman says he's "absolutely fine" after being told that his brain tumour has returned.

The star, who grew up in Settle, has been speaking about his condition, saying he hopes his experience will help others.

The 'Love Me Again' singer was first diagnosed with a non-cancerous tumour in 2012.

Earlier this month, he revealed it had come back.

He said: "I don't just want to be moping around worrying about this thing and I'd never ever do that.

"There are people in far, far worse situations who have a right to do that, you know, and that's why I wanted to put it out to raise awareness of those people."

John also says he's planning to have a new album ready for next year.
