The cancer was diagnosed during a routine check-up just before Christmas and Dickinson has just completed a seven-week course of chemotherapy and radiology. 

Paddy nursed him back to health in their home in Chiswick, West London, while he had nine weeks of chemotherapy and 33 sessions of radiation.

He was also supported by their children Austin, 29, Griffin, 27, and daughter Kia, 28 – and after six months Bruce got the all-clear.

Bruce told Rolling Stone magazine how surviving cancer changed his outlook on life – saying: ‘Living is living now, every minute, every second, for right now.’

But the couple’s marriage has since fallen apart, and while there are no immediate plans for a divorce, a legal separation would Bruce cutting up his £90million fortune.

Dickinson – who quit the band in 1993 only to re-join in 1999 – is known and loved for his on-stage energy and wide vocal range. 

In 2014 he said he had boycotted Glastonbury for being ‘too bourgeois’. 

‘Personally I have no interest in going to Glastonbury,’ he said. ‘In the days when Glasto was an alternative festival it was quite interesting, but anywhere Gwyneth Paltrow goes and you can live in an air-conditioned yurt is not for me.’

Iron Maiden were formed in Leyton, east London, in 1975 and have sold 80 million albums and won multiple awards, making them one of the most successful heavy metal bands of all time.
