Jasmine Harman has paid tribute to her 'partner in crime' Jonnie Irwin.
Last year, the A Place In The Sun presenter revealed that he had been given a terminal cancer diagnosis.
In November, the 49-year-old opened up about his health, explaining that the cancer had spread to his brain and that he was told he had just months to live.
Since then, Irwin has continued to discuss his illness and the impact it has had and continues to have on his life.
Over the years, he became one of the most popular faces on daytime television, presenting shows like Escape To The Country and A Place In The Sun.
And yesterday (27 June), the latter won Best Daytime Programme at the TRIC awards.
Taking to social media, fellow APITS presenter Harman thanked the show's fans, crew, and also Irwin.
She wrote: "Throwback to 2008 when @jonnieirwintv and I collected the TRIC award for Best Daytime programme.
"THRILLED to announce that today, A Place in the Sun was once again awarded this prestigious title; unfortunately I couldn’t be there as I’m away filming, but I am overflowing with gratitude to all the viewers and people who took the time to vote.
"Plus all of the incredible teams who pour their hearts into making the show what it is. Congratulations to everyone.
"BIG LOVE to all the other presenters and a personal shout out to my OG partner in crime, Jonnie.
"I especially want to tell you how much your contribution to the show over the years is enormously valued and you are very much loved."
Responding to the heartfelt post, Irwin said: "You’re a diamond and a true friend. Xxx."
This comes after much-loved television presenter recently revealed that he's 'taking every day as a gift'.
Speaking to the Mirror, he opened up about how he's been feeling recently.
The presenter said: "Today is a good day. Yesterday I peeled myself out of bed and munched painkillers but so far so good today.
"I take every day as a gift and as it comes."
Irwin has continued to work during his treatment for his cancer.
He said: "The only reason I kept it a secret is because I’ve got to feed my babies, pay the bills. And as soon as you say you've got cancer, people just write you off.
"I had to keep on providing for my family. I was living with such a dark cloud above me... anyone outside of my tight-knit [circle] didn’t know."
