Jonnie Irwin details road trip from ‘hell’ with wife and kids amid terminal cancer battle

TV presenter Jonnie Irwin has admitted that he was suffering through 'acoustic hell' during a noisy road trip with his three young sons Rex, Rafa, and Cormac.

The 49-year-old former Place in the Sun host took to his Instagram page to share an image of himself and his wife with their children sitting in the car.

Jonnie and his other half wore defeated looks on their faces as they shared snaps of their children playfully wreaking havoc in the background.

He captioned the post: "5 hours on and off in the car with the boys. Each one with a tablet/screen without headphones! Acoustic hell!"

Fans found the images hilarious as wife Jess jokingly pulled a downtrodden expression as she took the wheel during the trip.

Meanwhile, the dad of three also had a pained expression as he snapped the selfie for his 200 thousand followers.

"I can see the pained look in both your faces," a fan commented, while another posted: "The pain is literally written all over your faces."

One optimistic fan said: "Oh no, what a long journey for you all. Hopefully, you'll all have a lovely time at your destination."

While the fourth penned: “Been there, done that, what a funny picture. Your faces tell the story,” followed by a crying laughing emoji.

It comes as the TV star sadly revealed he is unsure how long he has left after being diagnosed with terminal lung cancer in August 2020.

The presenter was also given the devastating news that the cancer has since spread to his brain.

He shared that he has chosen not to tell his young children about the diagnosis as he doesn’t want to ‘confuse’ them.

Earlier this month, Jonnie shared in a bittersweet post that he was taking his eldest son Rex, four, on his ‘last ever’ trip to nursery.

Jonnie posted the adorable snap of him and his three boys riding on their bikes as Rex headed to his last day of nursery before starting school.

Doting dad Jonnie beamed as he put on a brave face for his family, despite recently admitting that he feels himself getting 'a lot weaker' amid his cancer battle.

He captioned the image: “"Last EVER ride to nursery with Rex. Suitably waved off by Rafa and his spade and Rex with his game face on."

The TV personality told Hello! how quickly his life was turned upside down by the disease after his vision went blurry while filming A Place In The Sun in Italy.

"Within a week of flying back from filming, I was being given six months to live," he explained.

"I had to go home and tell my wife, who was looking after our babies, that she was on her own pretty much. That was devastating. "All I could do was apologize to her. I felt so responsible."
