KENNY LOGAN has revealed his sex life with wife Gabby is not what it once was following his recovery from prostate cancer.
The former Scotland rugby international was diagnosed with the disease last February and began treatment the following September.
Kenny, 50, has since been given the all-clear thanks to an invasive procedure that left him "black and blue downstairs".
But like many men who have had treatment on their prostate, he's unfortunately had to deal with sex-life-affecting erectile dysfunction.
In a brave and revealing admission on Gabby's The MidPoint podcast, he said: “Six months on, I would say I’m physically 100 per cent, mentally 100 per cent, feel good.
“From a sexual point of view, it’s not consistent. As the surgeon said to me, this could take 18 months.

"Within a month, I was getting movement, where he says, ‘That’s amazing’. So it’s just not as consistent.”

And he takes pride in the fact that his own journey has raised awareness for the disease.
He said: “If I can help one person, that’d be great.

"But I’ve probably helped a lot of people with the coverage it's had.”
Kenny counts himself incredibly lucky to be fit and healthy following his battle with cancer, which sadly took the life of his former Scotland team-mate Tom Smith.
And he also paid a heartfelt tribute to countryman and team-mate Doddie Weir, who died last November after a crippling battle with Motor Neurone Disease.
He said of the late Weir: "His resilience, his bravery, is nothing I can match.
"He was dealt the worst card in the world.
"And his bravery and his courage to battle it and take it head on, I think you saw the real Doddie, actually.
"We all knew when you played ‘Big Daft Doddie’ and you go, ‘Aye’.
"But you saw the real heart and the real courage of him when this happened. Because it shone even more.”
