Jonnie Irwin has posted more cute family photos as he spends quality time with children despite being diagnosed with terminal cancer.
The movie A Place in the Sun Since revealing in April 2020 that cancer had spread to his brain from an initial lung cancer diagnosis, the presenter has been focused on family life.
He just moved to Beadnell, Northumberland, with his wife Jessica Holmes and his boys Rex, four, and Rafa and Cormac, two.
Now he’s updated followers with a lovely tour of the Yorkshire Wildlife Park, which included seeing a dinosaur, which thrilled his youngsters.
To avoid confounding his children, the 49-year-old stated in June that he had not informed them that he had only been given months to live.
Jonnie posted photos and videos of the family’s pleasure at the park, which they spent two days exploring, as well as a note to the workers.
‘Just back from an incredible couple of days at @yorkshirewildlifepark,’ he wrote.
The presenter continued: ‘Really well thought out for families with the animals, ranger talks, live shows and on site accom. I’d definitely recommend the trip for families as it was one of the most fun weekends we’ve done and the boys were constantly engaged.
‘Lots of space. Top marks to all the staff and @wildlife_fdn who create a great experience for everyone. We’ll be back!’
Fans flooded his comments section, with many remarking on how ‘great’ Jonnie looked as he smiled with his family.
One said: ‘Great pics, the boys look like they’ve had a brilliant day 😍 you look great too (and Mrs W 😁) x.’
Another wrote: ‘What a fabulous day out for the whole family xx ❤️.’
‘Amazing. You all look so happy having such a great wee day 😂🥰,’ added someone else as a fourth person shared: ‘Looks amazing .. as do you all 🙌.’
Jonnie has confessed that he felt ‘a lot weaker’ but has been keeping busy with a massive home renovation and plenty of family time.
He also took a road trip with Jessica and his sons, but he quipped that it wasn’t a tranquil journey because each of his lads was making noise without headphones.
Since making his cancer public, the Channel 4 actor has kept fans updated, been commended by professionals and charities for discussing his diagnosis and palliative care, and has received an outpouring of support.
‘This can help to debunk our innate politeness and awkwardness of avoiding such a sensitive subject like death,’ Sharon Jenkins, a bereavement counsellor for end-of-life charity Marie Curie, said.
