The Chase host, 61, was told he was at high risk of developing heart problems after his dad died of heart disease at the age of 59.

He shared with The Sun how turning 60 felt like a ‘milestone,’ as its an age his father, Daniel, wanted to reach.

‘I had it in the back of my mind that I just had to get past my dad’s age. So turning 60 was a bit of milestone,’ he said.

He went on to admit he cut out fatty foods and alcohol in a bid to improve his health.

‘I was a time bomb. I produce too much cholesterol. It’s a silent killer. My heart guy said, “Look, Brad, you need to get fit,”‘ he shared.

The Breaking Dad star – who recently became a grandfather – was just launching his mainstream career when his dad died, and he had the mammoth task of appearing on The Royal Variety Show shortly before his death.

‘I was 33 when he passed away. I’d just done The Royal Variety Show performance which helped launch my career, but my dad died from heart failure two weeks after that and never got to see it,’ Bradley explained.

‘Once you know it’s .ditary, you start having regular tests. Of course it’s a concern.’
