Troggs star Presley has lung cancer

Troggs frontman Reg Presley has told fans he has lung cancer and has decided to "call time" on the band.

The 70-year-old singer was taken ill during a gig in Germany in December.

Writing on his website, Reg said: "During my stay in hospital, tests showed that in fact I have lung cancer. I am receiving chemotherapy treatment and at the moment not feeling too bad.

"However I've had to call time on The Troggs and retire. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for the cards and calls and for your love, loyalty and support over the years."

The garage rockers had a string of hits in the 1960s including the much-covered Wild Thing and With A Girl Like You.

Their number five hit from 1967, Love Is All Around, became a massive hit when it was covered by Wet Wet Wet.

The song, which featured on the soundtrack of Four Weddings And A Funeral, spent 15 weeks at number one.
