Aussie radio and TV personality Hamish Blake has revealed he had to have emergency surgery after receiving a major health wake-up call.

While he made a joke about the surgery, calling it a “mini-facelift”, he followed up with a serious message for his followers.

Sharing a close-up photo of the stitches in his forehead, he wrote: “Got a mini facelift! I love it!”

“I’m doing the other side in a few weeks. #love #tinylift #bitbybit.”

But in the second photo, he wrote, “OK not really … This is my reminder to anyone who needs it (ie: anyone) to get your skin checked every six months.”

He added: “By the way, everything totally fine, but glad she got caught very early).”

Blake is one of a number of celebrities who has suffered a skin cancer scare in recent times and taken the opportunity to remind fans and followers about the importance of sun protection and regular skin checks.

Hugh Jackman had two have two biopsies after doctors became concerned that he may have skin cancers on his nose.

He had to wait two days for the results, which came back clear, but the scare prompted him to issue fans with a warning.

“I know you’ve heard me talk about my basal cell carcinomas,” he said.

“I’m going to keep talking about them, if need be.

“And if it reminds even one person to put on sunscreen with a high SPF, then I’m happy.”

Another Aussie celebrity to have a skin cancer scare recently is Farmer Wants a Wife 2023 star Claire Saunders.

Late last week Saunders took to Instagram to share a picture of herself with a small, barely noticeable bandage on the left side of her face.

“Today I am lucky and grateful,” the post was captioned.

“My mum said to me about 6 months ago ‘you should really go and get that looked at, it doesn’t look right’, referring to a little pimple mark I had on my face.

“I brushed it off and of course didn’t listen to my mum, until it came back another 4 times and then I finally got around to getting it looked at.

“I went to the doctor and got a skin check, biopsy and to my absolute shock it turns out I have early stages of skin cancer.

“I’m lucky because we got it early enough to start a course of creams, which will hopefully fix it.

“This is your reminder to GET YOUR SKIN CHECKED!”

Claire finished off her post with the hashtags #skincheck and #dontwaitfortomorrow.

Several followers said Claire’s message had given them the wake-up call they needed.

“Thanks for the reminder, I keep moving it down my ‘To Do’ list,” one person wrote.

“Aw babe, how frightening,” said another.

“I have been meaning to have a skin check for so long, this has kicked my butt to make an appointment.”
