James, 42, penned: “This video is the most precious & personal thing I have in my life right now & I’m going to share it with you but with a totally broken heart.
“Over the last 4 months my hero and best mate in the whole world has been in and out of hospital with very ill health.
“We were told several times that 100% he had had a stroke and that’s why they were struggling to control his seizures… but after the 3rd time of being admitted to hospital I knew something was not quite right.”

James continued to tell his fans that his dad had been diagnosed with cancer.
He said: “So after pushing for more tests and the results being sent to Kings College Hospital for other surgeons to look at unfortunately the results came back that it wasn’t a stroke after all.
“It was what I had dreaded, my dad has a tumour and after having a biopsy it’s come back that it’s an aggressive cancerous one. The worst kind unfortunately.

“We have been told that it’s not advisable to operate because of where the tumour is and wouldn’t actually make that much difference even if they could.
“The end result is, it’s terminal.”
James’ friends and fans were quick to rush the post, sharing their heartbreak for James.
Geordie Shore star Charlotte Crosby penned: “My heart is breaking for you James I’ll share this to my story so as many people see it as possible.”

However Joe, who recently got flirty with partner Stacey, appeared to have overlooked his friend’s caption, writing that he was glad to see his father was “doing better.”
James’ fans were quick to respond, with one writing: “You really need to read the post by James. His dad has terminal cancer."

And a third said: “Mate, his dad is really poorly.”

“As I write this tears are streaming down my face as I’m sure many of you have the same love for your parents. This is honestly the worst time of my life.

“I’m posting this and writing to you now as I want to get a second opinion on my father, especially because they misdiagnosed him for the first 4 months which doesn’t fill us with confidence.
“So now myself and my family are actually hoping they are wrong this time.
“I’m looking to find the best surgeon to see my father as I want to know I’ve done everything possible before I can accept it.
“If anyone that reads this can advise me and my family on who is supposedly the best in this field i would be eternally grateful.”
James signed off by saying “my heart is broken,” followed by a broken heart emoji.
