The unsettling discovery came after David tried to liven up his sex life with Tracy by dressing up – but as he approached her, she got a fright and accidentally hit him between the legs.

When checking on the swelling, David was left scared to discover another lump but soon covered his fear when Jacob overheard him telling Tracy about it.
