Jonnie hasn't addressed the health rumours, but did admit he's been struggling to sleep recently, taking to Twitter to say: "After (not) sleeping in 5 different beds in 6 days I'm finally home."

Luckily for fans, it seems that health issues aren't what's keeping Jonnie away from the show. The TV star, who has been a familiar face on the Channel 4 programmes since 2004, recently revealed in 2021 that now he is a father-of-three, his plans for presenting have changed.
