Dirty Dancing star snapped having a fag

Patrick Swayze is still smoking – despite battling pancreatic cancer.

He was pictured on Monday dragging on a fag after a session of chemotheraphy at Stanford University Medical Centre in California.

The Dirty Dancing star, 55, is reported to be a 60-a-day smoker and lit up while he was waiting for his private plane at an airport in northern California.

Patrick looks gaunt but his mum, Patsy, 81, insists he’s determined to get better.

‘He just does not deserve it,’ she tells the Daily Mail. ‘He’s got such a big heart and been such a good and generous person.

‘It breaks my heart to know he’s suffering. But he’s hanging in there and getting the best treatment.’

Patrick was diagnosed with the disease in January.

His publicist has said that the actor is responding well to treatment.
