In 2016, Dom started presenting Dom on the Spot on BBC. He returned to Fake Britain in 2017 after he’d left in 2012 following a two-year stint. In 2020, Littlewood was a contestant on Celebrity Masterchef.
This piece will look at Dominic’s love life and his health struggles. We can confirm that Dominic isn’t married.
He has had many girlfriends but he claims to have never fallen in love
In a 2007 interview with The Mirror, Dominic gave a rare insight into his love life. He explained that he had always put work before relationships and that it had impacted his love life negatively. Dom stated that he’d had some ‘great’ girlfriends but had never been in love. He then expressed hope that his fortunes would change. Dom stated:
“I’ve never been in love, and I think that’s my own fault. My priorities have shifted, and I’m ready to fall in love. I just hope I haven’t left it too late. I know I’m not exactly eye candy, but I’m a bit cheeky and I like having fun, so I hope people see that I’m sincere and genuine.”
Dominic’s prostate cancer diagnosis helped his sister discover that she had breast cancer
At the age of 10, Dominic was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. To keep the disease under control, he was required to undergo twice-yearly blood tests. During one of those routine blood tests in 2012, doctors found that Dominic had prostate cancer. He had lost both of his parents to cancer when they were in their sixties.
Dominic had been hardened by numerous injuries during his lifetime and so he didn’t panic when he received the news. He chose to have an operation that would completely remove the prostate glands. Before the procedure, he froze his sperm to ensure that he could have children in the future.
Doctors advised Dominic to tell his brother and sisters to get themselves checked for prostate and breast cancer. A couple of months later, Dominic’s sister Teresa found a lump on one of her breasts. Littlewood told The Mirror:
“She had a mastectomy straight away followed by radiotherapy and she’s fine now. But I believe to this day that if it wasn’t for my diagnosis and her being extra vigilant as a result, her circumstances would be very different. I probably saved her life. I don’t doubt it for a second. My dad always used to say that some good will come out of any bad – and in this case it proved to be true.”
