A Place In The Sun fans support Jonnie Irwin after tiring day amid cancer battle

Jonnie Irwin had his rallying round after he detailed a tiring day out at The Ashes 2023 amid his terminal cancer battle.

The A Place In The Sun star, 49, was given just six months to live in 2020 when he was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer.

The cancer then spread to his brain, and almost two and a half years later he publicly shared his diagnosis in December.
