In November, the Place In The Sun star revealed his cancer diagnosis was terminal, and that he could have up to just six months to live.

Now he hopes to make the most of the time he has left with his family.
"I don’t know how long I have left, but I try to stay positive and my attitude is that I'm living with cancer, not dying from it," he told Hello! Magazine.

"I want to make memories and capture these moments with my family because the reality is, my boys are going to grow up not knowing their dad and that breaks my heart."
