London: British actor Leslie Phillips dropped his honeymoon plans after the doctors admitted him for a surgery to remove a growth in his nose.

The 89-year-old, who got married to social worker Zara Carr here Dec 20, is relieved after the doctors informed him that the lump was not malignant.

"We won`t be going straight away because I`ll be in hospital. I have to get this thing removed. Thank God, it isn`t cancer. It just looks rather awful at the moment but I am getting that sorted," mirror.co.uk quoted the "Venus" actor as saying.

"We have been for all the appointments and the next part will be in a couple of weeks," he added.

Post the surgery, the couple will leave for Ibiza, Spain.

"I own a house in Ibiza where we will go. That will be the honeymoon really," Phillips said.
