Jonnie Irwin has shared an update on his health, amid his continued battle with terminal lung cancer.
The A Place in the Sun star, 49, shared a photo of himself in hospital as he revealed that he currently suffering with jaundice.
Captioning the snap, he wrote: "Back in hospital – been in since Friday with Jaundice. I had a fever and acute stabbing pain in my right hand side.
"Turns out I probably had an infection and otter issues which I won’t bore you with. Been on drips, regular bloods taken and have observations every 4 hours through day and night.
"Didn’t think I’d be watching @bbcmorninglive from a hospital bed but it’s just part of the roller coaster life that this illness throws at you I must admit I was especially touched by the birthday message from the the team for my birthday this coming Friday- thanks very much. X.
"I have another scan today followed by a meeting with my oncologist so fingers crossed for positive news #mellowyellow #yellowman #rollercoaster #bedrest #livingwithcancer #jaundice #cancer #fight"
The NHS website explains that jaundice is a condition where your skin or the whites of your eyes turn yellow and can be a sign of something serious like liver disease and needs urgent medical attention.
Fans have been sending their love and support to Jonnie in the comments of his post, with one writing: "All the best Jonnie. Hope you’re up and home soon xx"
"Hope your scan goes ok and u feel a little better x" added another, while a third penned: "Sending you love Johnny it's not f*ing easy, hope they're treating you well in there and best wishes hope you're back home very soon."
While fellow A Place in the Sun presenter Laura Hamilton commented: "Sending [heart emoji]"
Jonnie, who rose to fame in 2004 by presenting Channel 4 show A Place In the Sun, was initially given only six months to live when first diagnosed with stage four lung cancer in 2020. But he has outlived doctor’s predictions with the help of medication, radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
Last year Jonnie shared that he didn't know how much longer he had left to live. Since then he has been making memories with his loved ones – including a "full-on" family day out a couple of months ago and a getaway to the Northumberland coast.
