Jonnie Irwin says he is "back" filming amid his terminal cancer battle.

The Channel 4 A Place In The Sun star, who was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, shared an update on Instagram as he continues to pick up TV work amid his gruelling and brave battle with the disease.

The presenter was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer in 2020, announcing the news last November to tell fans that it has since spread to his brain.

"So good to be back filming for @bbcmorninglive. We’ve just shot to short films about renovating your home and what to look out for.

"I think my smug smile betrays the lack of a massive commute for once and the extra couple of hours I got in my scratcher as we filmed in Newcastle Upon Tyne," he wrote.

"I’ll let you know when they are due to go out, when I know myself. #onset #onlocation #bbcmorninglive #property #propertyrenovation #toon #newcastle".

Viewers of Escape to the Country were treated last month (Monday 25th September) after Irwin made a return to the countryside show and small screen.

"I head down to Somerset and look at some fantastic rural properties in some beautiful locations. Plus, I also get to visit a cider farm - perks of the job. Hope you enjoy!", Irwin wrote on Instagram. The episode was shot last autumn.

Responding to his latest Instagram,  Jo replied: "Can’t keep the good fella down .. great stuff." Anne replied: "You are looking so well - much better than you have been for quite some time. Keep fighting the good fight."

Jane said: "Back on tv where you belong and looking totally amazing!" Maria said: "You look fantastic and your eyes are sparkling." June said: "You are looking so well in this image Jonnie. Hope you are doing as well as you look ." Vonny said: "Right back where you belong! Doing your fabulous presenting."
