The terminally ill Jonnie Irwin has shared an update on his battle with cancer and is being praised by fans for it.
The 49-year-old ‘A Place in the Sun’ host stunned fans last year by revealing his heartbreaking diagnosis.
Jonnie, who has three young children with his wife Jessica Holmes, has lung cancer.
In an update to his concerned fans, Jonnie has revealed on social media that he has had CT and MRI scans to monitor the disease.
However, he shared how the screening took place outside the hospital using a remote handheld scanner.
He posted on Instagram: “I got some scans today. Not in a hospital, but in a recreation center parking lot. MRI and CT unit. And surprisingly so.”
“I actually had a great experience. We were able to park almost at the front door, no queue and were done and dusted in less than 15 minutes. Well done #nhs.”
Fans showered his comments with praise and wished the TV presenter well.
One wrote: “Looks really good Irwin! See you soon.”
A second said: “You are incredibly lucky with the MRI and CT scans.”
“Good luck with your scans, you look fine,” said a third.
While a fourth commented: “You look amazing. Good luck having everything under control.”
Jonnie, who was fired from Channel 4’s ‘A Place in the Sun’ after producers were made aware of his illness, has shared his daily struggles in a new podcast.
“I’ve been close to death’s door at least twice.”
Doctors told him he had only six months to live when they discovered lung cancer two and a half years ago.
He defied these predictions even as the deadly condition spread to his brain.
In a new podcast titled OneChat, Jonnie explained, “I’m living with cancer instead of dying of cancer.”
