Chas & Dave star battles back from his cancer scare

By Joe Nerssessian

Chas Hodges, one half of music duo Chas & Dave, has promised he will be back to his best as he announced a comeback gig following a battle with cancer.

The pair will appear at the British Summertime Festival in London's Hyde Park in June, their first gig since Hodges was diagnosed with cancer of the oesophagus in December.

The musician said he was "excited" to get back after he and Dave Peacock were forced to cancel a string of dates while he received chemotherapy.

He said: "Chas & Dave are back, Chas is back, I've got my last chemo on Tuesday and it's definitely working.

"The doctors reckon I'll be gig fit by June."
