TV presenter Jonnie Irwin has died after a three-and-a-half year battle with cancer, his family says.

The 50-year-old, who presented Channel 4’s A Place In The Sun and the BBC’s Escape To The Country, said in November 2022 he had lung cancer which had spread to his brain.

He was diagnosed in 2020.

In a statement, his wife Jessica Holmes shared: "It is with heavy hearts that we share the news of Jonnie's passing.

"A truly remarkable soul, he fought bravely against cancer with unwavering strength and courage.

"Jonnie touched the lives of so many with his kindness, warmth, and infectious spirit.

"At this time, we kindly ask for the privacy of Jonnie's family as they navigate through this profound loss. Their grief is immeasurable, and your thoughts, prayers, and support are deeply appreciated."

The tribute added: "As we remember the beautiful moments shared with Jonnie, let us celebrate a life well-lived and a legacy that will forever be etched in our hearts.

"Jonnie may be gone from our sight, but his love, laughter, and memories will live on.

"Rest in peace, dear Jonnie. You will be dearly missed, but never forgotten.
