A Place in the Sun's Jonnie Irwin has described his 'frustrating' experience as his terminal cancer continues to spread.

The dad-of-three regularly shares health updates with his followers after first announcing in November 2022 that he 'doesn't know how long' he has left to live.

Irwin has been diagnosed with lung cancer and has been undergoing treatment to help prolong his life, which he shares with his wife, Jess, and their three young sons.

However, yesterday (17 September), Irwin announced that his cancer was 'on the move again'.

The TV presenter took to Instagram to share a series of photos of himself undergoing treatment, beginning with an image of him wearing an oxygen mask.

"The wait for more scans is frustrating when you know the cancer is on the move again," he wrote.

Other images showed Irwin posing with the therapists at Serenti Health & Wellness, a wellness centre focused on 'peace and self care', and smiling as he stood outside the shop.

In his caption, Irwin continued: "Meanwhile there’s stuff I can do to make the terrain as tough as possible for growth and the ladies down at @sereniti_health are part of my team of suppliers for various therapies.

"I’d recommend this place to anyone wanting to tap into a healthier lifestyle. Big shout as always goes to @how_to_starve_cancer who’s constant help has a huge impact. #respect."

Irwin was met with a wealth of support after he shared the update, with followers encouraging him to 'live every day the best you can'.

Irwin's news that the cancer is spreading came after he admitted last week he had been 'pretty unwell'.

He shared a snap of himself with one of his sons sat on his shoulders, adding: "Felt better this morning so headed off to watch some Monster trucks. Kids loved it, got soaked in the rain, quick change when we got home to go again at a Christening party. Full on Sunday."

Irwin and his wife have decided not to tell their children, Rex, four, and two-year-old twins Rafa and Cormac, about his illness, and are instead focused on making memories with them.

As for announcing the news to the rest of the world, Irwin said earlier this year that sharing his diagnosis allowed him to 'start living again'.

"The day I came out and told the world I had terminal cancer is the day I started living again," Irwin said on the podcast OneChat, by life insurance company AIG Life.

"I started being Jonnie Irwin again and I actually feel alive,” he added.
