Bowel Cancer announces new corporate partnership with Andrex® with help from ITV's Celebrity Big Brother, that aims to encourage people to talk about their toilet habits and ease any embarrassment. 

Nearly 43,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with bowel cancer every year, but fewer than 4 in 10 people are diagnosed in the early stages, when the disease is easier to treat. We can change this and by sparking conversations about toilet habits, we're empowering the public to overcome embarrassment and seek crucial support from a health professional.”
