Jonnie Irwin’s widow Jessica Holmes opens up about his death and reveals it ‘still doesn’t feel real’

Jonnie Irwin’s widow Jessica Holmes has opened up about his death and revealed it “still doesn’t feel real.”
The 50-year-old sadly passed away on February 2nd following a battle with lung cancer.
The TV presenter was first diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2020 – one week after filming his popular show A Place In The Sun in Italy.

In a tragic turn of events, the cancer spread to his brain and in 2022, Jonnie revealed he only had six months left to live.
The father-of-three’s family took to Instagram to announce his death to the world.
The heartbreaking statement read: “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.”
They continued: “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.”
“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.”

Jessica broke her silence two weeks after her husband’s death and took to Instagram to share her grief with her followers.
In her new post, the widow penned: “It still doesn’t feel real. The sadness is huge. I can’t even let myself think what another week without Jonnie will be like let alone another year another 10 years.”
“I have been truly touched by all the support from friends and strangers. But nothing compares to how I have been picked up by my family and Jonnies sisters, your support and love means everything to me.”

“I am loving watching the boys enjoy some days in the sun and having a change of scene is just what we needed ❤️🙏🏼”
