Jonnie Irwin gave his kids a weekend to remember by taking them on an incredible Jurassic rainforest trip in their own house.
The 49-year-old former A Place In The Sun host said in November that he may only have’months to live’ after lung cancer spread to his brain and turned deadly.
Since then, the adoring father-of-three has been living life to the fullest and making the most of every moment, and over the weekend, he shared a series of photos of him and his boys camping in a jungle put up in their own house.
He wrote: ‘Got in to find my garden doom had been transformed to a jungle! Full camp was set up with tents and sensory toys and objects.
‘Needless to say, we didn’t get to sleep til late. The boys loved it. All set up and taken away the next day. Thanks very much @darkskysleepovers.’
There were lots of dinosaur toys scattered across the floor, and three tents and an amazing Jurassic background set the tone for an epic time.
Dark Sky Sleepovers – who specialise in ‘bespoke sleepover parties’ – replied to his post and thanked Jonnie for getting them involved.
The company’s account commented: Such a pleasure to meet your lovely family and bring our Jurassic jungle to life for you❤️ 🦕 I’m so pleased you had fun – thank you so much for letting us come and set up for you all, Katie 🙂’
‘Keep making amazing memories ❤️,’ wrote a follower, while another fan added: ‘This looks superb. Kinda beats a cardboard box and a blanket 👏. I bet dad loved it as much as the boys?’
Jonnie, who has four-year-old son Rex and two-year-old twins Rafa and Cormac with his wife Jessica Holmes, spent an evening out on the red carpet earlier this weekend.
Jonnie attended the First Time Buyer Magazine Awards on Saturday night, with his old Escape to the Country co-star Nicki Chapman.
SO Resi Education received the ‘prestigious’ Jonnie Irwin Legacy Award on the evening for their efforts in teaching the next generation of first-time buyers how to jump on the property ladder.
Speaking fondly of the evening, Jonnie said: ‘Congratulations to all the winners at the @firsttimebuyermag Awards yesterday there was some very impressive winners and runners up.’
‘We also raised an incredible amount of money for our nominated charity @stoswaldsuk with a couple of super generous individual bids- you know who you are and thankyou so much,’ he added.
‘Well done to Lynda Clarke and all of the team and props to the legend @nickichappers for another sterling job as ever. X’
