Jonnie Irwin’s A Place In The Sun co-star Leah Charles-King recalled the sweet moment she the property expert two years ago.
The A Place in the Sun presenter, 49, shared publicly last November that he didn’t know how long he had to live after a tumour in his lung spread to his brain.
Jonnie has since kept his followers in the loop with his treatment and the emotional milestones for his family as he makes the most of his final moments.
At the time, the presenter was told he could only have ‘months to live’ and has been enjoying spending time with his family since – wife Jessica Holmes, and kids, Rex, four, and two-year-old twins Rafa and Cormac.
Sharing her love for her former colleague, Leah exclusively told Metro.co.uk: ‘We all love and support Jonnie, we all saw him at the TRIC awards where A Place in the Sun won and we dedicated it to him live on stage.
‘I met Jonnie before when I first got the gig in 2021, and he was so welcoming and warm to me and he left the programme before I even started but he was just wonderful and as we all do just sending him lots of love.’
