‘You can only imagine how difficult it’s been for her,’ the former Home and Away star told host Carrie Bickmore. 

‘What plays in my head a lot is, I hate to say this, how hard it may be for her if something does happen to me,’ he continued. 

‘So, it’s something that I don’t want to think about. It just gets me a little bit emotional about it because I know at some point something will happen, whether it’s, you know, a month from now or 10 years from now or 20 years.’

Johnny told Carrie that he has already outlived his life expectancy with the disease.   

‘At some point it will get me but I’m still fighting. Still kicking on. Looking up my diagnosis and my tumour, the average life expectancy was three years,’ he admitted. 

‘And for me it’s now been five years. I’m already winning. My goal now is to try and help as many people as I can and also live a happy life’. 

Earlier this year, Johnny spoke about the integral part Tahnee has played in his life, throughout his ongoing health battle.

‘And she’s encouraging me to do things. She keeps me active, getting me to go for runs and swims,’ he added.

‘I’d like to think I’ll be married to Tahnee,’ he said when asked what his life will hopefully look like in 10 years.

The X-factor finalist has made no secret of the level of support Tahnee has given him, even crediting her for ‘saving’ his life in a WHO magazine interview. 

Johnny and Tahnee first met at a dance studio back in 2015, and they’ve been together since. 

He revealed on November 24, 2021 he was once again fighting brain cancer, a blow to the couple after he got the all clear.

‘After an unexpected week of seizures and excruciating headaches it is with a heavy heart that I have to let you know I now have another huge battle ahead of me as my brain cancer has returned,’ he wrote on Instagram.  

Johnny was first diagnosed with the disease in 2017 after he went to hospital with painful migraines.

In August of the same year, he had a 7cm brain tumour surgically removed, before undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
