Jonnie Irwin, 49, opened up on his cancer diagnosis as he met with his “mentor” yesterday to find inspiration to remain positive despite his “hopeless” situation. The TV favourite added he is now looking to “change his lifestyle” despite it being “bl**dy” hard after being told he has just months to live.
Sharing a photo of himself with author Jane Mclelland, Jonnie typed: “It was a privilege to meet my mentor Jane Mclelland today, author of @how_to_starve_cancer.
“Her story is truly an inspiration and in my opinion a must-read for anyone affected by cancer.
“It’s inspired me to change my lifestyle and importantly given me hope in an otherwise hopeless situation.
“Don’t get me wrong- it’s bl**dy hard but I’m on board,” he added.
Jane herself responded: “So lovely to meet you @jonnieirwintv! I know it’s a tough road but you are determined and strong.
“Your positivity was so good to see. Here for you and Jess to help where I can and to point you in the direction of others when I can’t.
“Sending lots of love to you both,” she finished.
Jane’s book has been described as “ground-breaking” as she described her own remarkable journey with cancer, and the medical discoveries she made on the way.
In the comments, Jonnie’s fans wished him luck and said he already was looking “healthier” in his appearance.

The 49-year-old presenter was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2020 and was later given just months to live after learning the disease had spread to his brain leaving him terminally ill.
Last month Jonnie and Jess revealed they had made the decision not to tell their sons about his battle with the disease because: “Why break their hearts when they’re having such fun?”
When asked if his children understand what he is going through, Jonnie told the Daily Mail: “Not yet. When I’m frailer or in bed for days we might.
“If you have 20 days left, why spend them in mourning and confusion?
“Why not just have 15 days of pure, blissful ignorance and five days of knowing the facts?
“I’m not looking forward to the chat with Rex. We’re still thinking about it.
“I’ve learnt that it’s best to do nothing if you’re unsure.”
