Known for his naughty but cheeky behaviour and antics with Irene Roberts, Chris Harrington had Summer Bay in stitches during his time on the soap between 2013 and 2016

No one will ever forget Irene Roberts’ erstwhile companion in crime, Chris Harrington, despite the fact that she welcomed numerous newcomers to Summer Bay over the years.

Chris moved in quickly and established himself as the local cheeky chappy after arriving in the seaside town to find his brother Spencer.

Actor Johnny Ruffo, who has appeared on both Australia’s The X Factor and Dancing with the Stars, is a triple threat outside of the soap opera industry.

He has also been dealing with brain cancer intermittently for the past five years as he disclosed his diagnosis.

How old is Johnny and where is he from?

Johnny, who is 34 years old, was born on March 8th, 1988. He is a native of Western Australia’s Balcatta.

When did Johnny start acting?

After finishing third on The X Factor Australia in 2011, Johnny gained notoriety.

He participated in Dancing with the Stars Australia in between hosting a radio station, recording his debut album, and opening for One Direction in his native country.

He made his acting debut in Home and Away, where he was only slated to appear in 16 episodes. He did, however, continue to appear on the show for three years because of how much he pleased the audience.

When was Johnny diagnosed with cancer?

Johnny revealed his diagnosis of brain cancer a year after leaving Home and Away.

He disclosed that he had surgery to remove a brain tumor in August 2019. He was diagnosed with his ailment after experiencing a migraine.

In May 2019, Johnny revealed that he was “now clean of cancer” after receiving “extensive treatment”.

In November 2020, he informed his followers that the brain cancer had come back.

He declared himself “now stable” the following summer.

What had Johnny said about his diagnosis?

Recently, Johnny talked about his Christmas wishes, including reuniting with his Irish-born brother.

Despite having a two-year age difference, the siblings are quite close. Due to the pandemic, they were apart for three years, but they remained in touch via WhatsApp.

In spite of outliving his diagnosis, Johnny said he still has a lot of goals in mind. Five years have passed since he was told he had three years to live.

He said to 7Entertainment, “I know the cancer is terminal, but you know, I’m going to do everything I can and I’m doing everything I can to kick its a**.

Who is Johnny’s girlfriend?

Tahnee Sims and Johnny had been together for a long time.

They originally connected at a dancing studio in 2015, and the former soap star is grateful to her for being by his side during his diagnosis and treatment.

Johnny said he believes he’ll be married to Tahnee when asked where he sees himself in 10 years.
