A Place in the Sun star Jonnie Irwin, who has claimed he was axed by the Channel 4 show after revealing he had just six months to live, has been plagued by thoughts of his wife Jessica Holmes remarrying after his death. The 48-year-old has been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, which has now spread to his brain, and, amid the bad news, he simply cannot bear the thought of his wife moving on.

"Jess is not the sort to go on a dating app and in a perfect world I suppose she will meet a divorcé dad or someone who has lost their partner," he continued to The Sun.

He tugged on fans' heartstrings when he added sadly: "It's not my business, I guess. That's her life, as much as it hurts me to think this way."

The bad news about his life expectancy was broken to Jonnie last week after a period of worrying.

He first realised something was amiss when he suffered blurred vision during a filming stint in Italy for A Place in the Sun - and things swiftly went downhill from there.

Jonnie now feels that, although some people have lengthy bucket lists, his main aim is to spend quality time with his family.

Last weekend, he went on a romantic Paris break with his wife and three children and built memories as he strolled with them by the river Seine.

@billyemerson57 chimed in: "Jonnie's enthusiastic inspiration on A Place in the Sun was why we bought our little town house project in Torrox - a life changing and life enhancing experience!! Thank you. God Bless."

"It's because of you... that we had 14 fantastic years in Spain. Watched Place in the Sun constantly so we decided to go for it!!" one fan, @milly.rodgers.90 enthused.

The previous week, Jasmine had posted photos of the pair together while commending his bravery for sharing his story.

Describing him as her "original partner in crime", she added: "As ever a true inspiration & always positive and up for a laugh no matter what the circumstances."

The official A Place in the Sun account also responded to his Instagram message, writing: "We don't have the words, we just have love, affection and respect for our friend and colleague of so many years, the wonderful Jonnie Irwin. We're thinking of you, Jess and the boys x."

Meanwhile, A Place in the Sun's production company have since responded to Jonnie's claims that he was axed after revealing his cancer diagnosis.

"Jonnie has been a hugely important part of the A Place in The Sun family for over 18 years and all of us were deeply saddened by his diagnosis," their statement read.

" Much loved by everyone on the production, no stone was left unturned in trying to enable Jonnie to continue his international filming with us during Covid but the production company were unable to secure adequate insurance cover for him.

"Whilst we were unable to continue to film abroad with him, we're delighted that he was able to remain as part of our team in the UK for exhibitions. We of course understand how frustrating this must be for him at this incredibly difficult time."
