This country actor Michael Sleggs has revealed that he dies of cancer after a & # 39; reasonably fast & # 39; decline.
The 33-year-old TV star shared the devastating news with his fans on a moving Facebook post last week and said he plans to spend his last days at home with his family.
Michael is best known for playing Michael & # 39; Slugs & # 39; Slugette in the award-winning BBC Three comedy and is a long-time friend of show makers Charlie and Daisy May Cooper.
Sad news: this country actor Michael Sleggs has revealed that he dies of cancer and does not have to live long
The character, who appeared on seven episodes of the show, was also diagnosed with terminal cancer in a tragic turn of fate.
Michael wrote on his Facebook page: & # 39; Hello friends, as many of you probably know that I have spent a lot of time in and out of the hospital in recent months.
& # 39; This last time it was decided that I had reached the end of the options, so they sent me home on palliative care to live at home for the rest of my days.
& # 39; No specific time limit has been given, but the deterioration has been fairly rapid.
& # 39; I slept a lot and avoided a coma by accidentally taking an overdose of morphine.
& # 39; Anyway, you can imagine that this is not the ideal way that I wanted things to go and my family was in a lot of grief.

Emotional post: the actor made the news public last week by sharing a moving statement with his friends and followers on Facebook
& # 39; I just wanted to say that I love everyone who reads this status so much, you have all been such fantastic, kind, caring people who have all touched my life in so many unique and incredible ways.
& # 39; Sorry if this status is too shmaltzy but not everyone has the opportunity to say goodbye, so spoil me lol. & # 39;
Michael revealed that his Christian faith had helped him formulate his diagnosis and that he was comforted by his religious beliefs.
& # 39; If you are wondering why I am not getting panicked by the whole situation & he said.
& # 39; Well, I was in the beginning, but as always in a time of crisis (should have been a long time before I was embarrassed to say) I turned to God and my Christian faith.
Acting debut: the role of seven episodes was Michael & # 39; s first attempt to act and won a legion of fans. He is an old friend of showmakers and stars Charlie and Daisy May Cooper (pictured together)
& # 39; I read the Bible daily, listened to Christian songs and sermons, and it changed my whole mindset into nothing but peace and gratitude.
Jongens Guys, regardless of some medical issues, I am blessed with the best life and best friends and apart from not being diligently following God earlier in my life, I have no regrets.
& # 39; If you don't already know Jesus, my only hope is to get to know him before you get to my state. He will rock your world in the best way! & # 39;
Michael has previously suffered from cancer and heart failure.
A BBC spokesman declined to comment when contacted by MailOnline.

The sad news comes shortly after Michael made a deal with Austin Macaulay Publishers to publish his first book, an & # 39; entertaining and irreverent & # 39; autobiography called Memoirs Of A 90s School Boy.
The book is billed as & # 39; a comedy / biography about my time in primary school and the different people I met there & # 39 ;.
In this country, Slugs was introduced as a friend of the central characters of This Country Kerry and Kurtan and started a relationship with Kayleigh (Celeste Dring).
Show makers The Coopers based the character on Sleggs himself, but Michael did not notice the similarity.
Charlie said to Cotswolds Life before: & He didn't realize that the character had anything to do with him. He went to Daisy while filming and said, "I know who the character is based on."
& # 39; And Daisy is like, & # 39; Yes, sorry colleague, I hope you are well. & # 39; And he said, "It's Paul Fisher, isn't it?"
