Fans were loving Jonnie’s post, as one said: ‘Fantastic picture of you both and you are looking great Jonnie lad ❤️’

‘Ahhhh! That’s such a beautiful picture of you both so pleased to see Jonnie looking good! & you Chappers glamorous as ever❤️❤️,’ said another.

This comes after Jonnie and his family enjoyed an ‘incredible’ trip to Yorkshire Wildlife Park, after lazing next to the choppy North Sea in Beadnell, Northumberland.

Jonnie revealed in June he had not yet told his children about his condition to avoid confusion that he suspected would come from such a conversation.

The star previously explained how even though he’s got bad memory since undergoing brain therapy, he can remember the ‘brutal’ moment he revealed his terminal diagnosis to his wife, who had only welcomed their twins months before.

He began: ‘A woman who only two months before has had twins, how do you tell her that you’re going to be there anymore?

‘So I just went upstairs, I can remember it like it was yesterday and I’ve got no memory since my whole brain therapy.

‘But that bloody memory stays in my head and it is brutal.

‘And all I can remember is hugging her and just saying sorry and I still feel sorry now.’
