Fans gushed over the beautiful snaps, as the star battles a terminal cancer diagnosis, with many fearing this Christmas may be his last.

“You look great thanks for letting us into your life,” said a another, while a third added: “Beautiful family. Sending you love and strength! Merry Christmas.”

Jonnie recently opened up about how his terminal cancer diagnosis has impacted his life.

After he revealed his terminal lung cancer diagnosis in 2020, the British TV personality claimed that his contract was terminated with Channel 4's home improvement show A Place in the Sun, which he hosted on-air since 2004.

He told The Sun: "As soon as people find out you've got cancer, they write you off," he explained.

"Yes, I have stage four, and it's terminal — but not yet, so let me live my life while I can."

"As soon as I told A Place In The Sun about my diagnosis, they paid me for the rest of the season, but didn't renew my contract. They knew I wanted to carry on. That hurt. That broke my heart. I feel hugely let down. I can't even watch the show now," Irwin added.

In a joint statement to the BBC, Freeform Productions and Channel 4 said, that while Jonnie has been a “hugely important part of the A Place in The Sun family for over 18 years” the production company was “unable to secure adequate insurance cover for him."

The added that “no stone was left unturned in trying to enable Jonnie to continue his international filming with us.”

He was given six months to live when he was first diagnosed in Aug. 2020, as doctors told him the lung cancer spread to his brain. Irwin has since survived on medication, radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
