Jonnie Irwin retreats to his bath in pain after eventful weekend

Jonnie Irwin has had a rather eventful weekend which involved him… getting stuck in his bin.

The A Place In The Sun presenter, 49, shared an update with his followers as he retreated to his bath after a rather stinky ordeal.

Jonnie – who has been making the most of family time following his terminal cancer diagnosis – was left in pain after doing some household jobs.

Taking to social media, the star shared a snap of his legs as he reclined in the tub and watched the Ashes.

His caption read: ‘I went on a jet washing marathon earlier and got stuck in the washing the inside of my wheelie bins.

‘I’m now sat stink and my back is killing me so I thought I’ll have a bath and watch the cricket with your volume down and test match. I’ve made a promise to all stay in the bath [sic]’.

‘The water had now gone rather cold but I’ll be good for my word’, he joked as he listens to the cricket commentary on the radio.

Flocking to the comments section, fans were keen to spread the love.

‘Well earned rest! 👌👍’, one wrote.

‘Youre an inspiration 🙌 enjoy that bath 😂’, wrote another.

‘Fair play to you Jonnie – you’re always on the go. Good man 👏👏’, another said.

Jonnie has been keeping people in the loop with his personal life over recent months after his heartbreaking cancer admission.

The property expert revealed last year that he didn’t know how long he had left to live after cancer in his lung had spread to his brain.

Most recently, he confessed that doctors hadn’t expected him to live until 2023.

Making a rare public appearance last week, he told The Mirror at TRIC Awards in London: ‘Today is a good day. Yesterday I peeled myself out of bed and munched painkillers, but so far so good today.’

‘I take every day as a gift and as it comes,’ added the dad-of-three.

Jonnie added that he felt like he could ‘breathe’ finally after sharing his cancer diagnosis from 2020 with the world, two years on.

‘I could talk to people about why I felt ill and why I was losing weight.

‘I didn’t have to answer Karens on Instagram saying, “You look ill”, “You don’t look well”, “You need a cooked meal.”

‘I also wanted to show that because you have cancer it doesn’t mean you are a different person.

‘You can still work. Look at me now! I don’t think the doctors were expecting me to make 2023 but here I am and I’m available at work. And I’m especially available to parties!’

Jonnie and wife Jess share Rex, four, and two-year-old twins Rafa and Cormac, who are unaware of their dad’s cancer.

The Escape To The Country host has said he doesn’t want to ‘confuse’ the little ones.

However, he has been having some tough conversations with his eldest as he makes the most of his ‘final moments’.

‘I’ve started to tell Rex in private conversations, “You can do anything”,’ Jonnie said in an interview.

‘He’s bright, he’s talented, and comes home from nursery knowing more French than I do,’ doting dad Jonnie added to Hello!

Jonnie also poignantly noted: ‘Jess is soft, so they’ll have a softer upbringing than if I was around, probably.’
