Martin Clunes

Martin Clunes is best known for his portrayal as Doc Martin and the unforgettable Gary in Men Behaving Badly, though his theatre, film and television credits stretch to an incredibly long resume. 

Martin has experienced first-hand how devastating a cancer diagnosis can be, sadly losing his father to cancer when he was eight years old. 

An ambassador for Macmillan for more than a decade, Martin has provided his regular support to World’s Biggest Coffee Morning encouraging people to host their own coffee morning through appearances on television shows such as Loose Women and This Morning, in addition to featuring in a large number of print interviews. 

Martin also visited a family affected by cancer for ITV’s Text Santa Christmas fundraiser in 2015, where he showed viewers how much the practical and emotional support provided by our nurses at home is immeasurably valued.

My family knows first-hand just how devastating a cancer diagnosis can be. Thankfully, I also know the real difference the support provided by Macmillan makes to families who are faced with cancer.
