Johnny felt that the best way to live, given his health, was to make the most of his life and that would inspire his fans and make him feel more energetic. Then he made his illness public. However, Channel 4’s attitude disappointed him, which broke his heart. Despite Irwin’s assurances that he would provide a certificate of fitness for work from his oncologist, the channel refused to accept him back.

Channel 4 cited the inability to secure insurance coverage for Irvine’s international filming as the reason for his dismissal.
