Update : 27 Apr 2024, 22:29

TV personality Harry Jowsey has urged people to "please wear sunscreen" after being diagnosed with skin cancer.

The 26-year-old, who previously appeared on ABC's Dancing With The Stars and Netflix's Too Hot To Handle, said it was on his shoulder for a year or two but he "had no idea".

"I just want to save and protect one of you guys out there," he told his five million followers on TikTok.

The Australian-born influencer added he was "going to be all good".

In his post he said: "There isn't really an easy way to say this, but last week I went to a dermatologist to get me skin checked and they found some skin cancer on me.

"I'm going to be all good, everything's going to be ok."

Jowsey said he was making his diagnosis public to urge his followers to wear sunscreen with summer approaching.

"If you're a freckly little frog like me, go get a mole map and get your body checked, because you never know," he said.

"I had this on my shoulder for like a year or two, I had no idea...

"Go get your skin checked, wear your sunscreen and a be a little bit more responsible because that's what I've got to do now, and it's very scary."

US-based Jowsey did not say what type of skin cancer he has or what treatment he would receive.

He found fame in Netflix reality dating show Too Hot To Handle in 2020, before appearing in US show Dancing With The Stars in 2023.

The podcast host has built up a following of nine million followers across Instagram and TikTok.
