“Tahnee inspires me to want to do better and be better. She helps me find the fight every day and I am so grateful for that. I can’t thank her enough,” he said.

Johnny revealed that they try to keep their relationship as normal as possible by talking about plans for the future, but his bleak prognosis is still a heavy burden on them.

“I can already feel the pain she will have to go through and there is nothing I can do about it. I can’t take that away from her,’ he said.

“It’s heartbreaking for me and it feels like it’s all my fault. I don’t know what to do. So we take each day as it comes. I fight my very best.’

Johnny was first diagnosed in August 2017 after excruciating headaches.

He had emergency surgery and doctors removed a 7 cm tumor from his frontal lobe and also underwent chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

The former X Factor star went into remission months later, but revealed in November 2021 that the disease had returned.

Johnny confirmed to The Project on Monday that his cancer was now terminal.

He told host Carrie Bickmore, who lost her husband Greg Lange to brain cancer in 2010, that he had already outlived his life expectancy.

“It will get to me at some point, but I’m still fighting. Still kicking. When I looked up my diagnosis and my tumor, the average life expectancy was three years,” he admitted.

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

Johnny has often spoken of the support Tahnee has given him since his diagnosis, once attributing her to “saving” his life. The pair first met in a dance studio in 2015

Despite his battles, the former Dancing with the Stars contestant was more concerned about how his girlfriend Tahnee would fare after his passing.

“You can imagine how hard it has been for her,” he told Carrie.

“What’s on my mind a lot is, I hate to say this, how hard it can be for her if something happens to me.

“So it’s something I don’t want to think about. It just makes me a little emotional because I know that at some point something will happen, whether it’s, you know, in a month or in 10 years or in 20 years.”
