And it was Gabby advising her husband to get checked that resulted in him being diagnosed.
Bravely speaking out, Logan said: “I was actually listening to one of the episodes about menopause about women and their hormones falling off a cliff.
“As I was going through this in my head, and I thought ‘what about me’, ‘what is happening to me’, and Gabby said that I should go and get checked.

“I went to get a wellness check and he said that everything was fine with my hormones but your prostate is high, your PSA is high so you should go and get checked.
“I had a biopsy, but this year on February 7 I was diagnosed with prostate cancer, which was a huge shock.”
Logan then had to choose whether to undergo radiotherapy, brachytherapy, or surgery to have his prostate removed.
The former rugby star opting for the latter.

He continued: “I ended up deciding to take it out. So I’m now three months since the operation, had the prostate out.
“And I’m probably 95 per cent back to normal, maybe 90 per cent back to normal.
“It’s hard when you’re told you’ve got cancer – and I’d literally fell over it, I didn’t see it coming, no symptoms whatsoever – I had to go looking for it.”
Gabby said: “I think that was the shocking thing for both of us that the day before he went in for his operation, I’m jumping forwards a bit, he’d done a bike session.
“He had no pain, he had no symptoms. And to go in and have surgery which is a really invasive surgery and it obviously takes a long to recover from you’re going to feel a lot worse after it.
“But very, very, very lucky.”
Logan agreed: “Extremely lucky.”
The couple will discuss Logan’s diagnosis on Gabby’s The Mid Point podcast.
They appeared on BBC Breakfast just days after former BBC Breakfast presenter Bill Turnbull tragically died from the same illness.
And the former sports star Logan finished by urging people to “go looking” for the illness, and said blood tests can be booked through local GP’s.
Logan and Gabby have been married since 2001.
After undergoing IVF treatment, Gabby gave birth to twins – son Reuben and daughter Lois on July 28, 2005.
