‘There’s a bumpy road ahead but he’s ready to fight the big fight and beat the (poo emoji) out of this … he’s loving all your messages of love and support on social, so jump on it,’ Larry encouraged.
The former Home and Away star is currently preparing for the worst in his battle with brain cancer.
Speaking to Studio 10 recently, the 29-year-old revealed he made a will ‘a long time ago.’
Despite remaining positive, Johnny told the panel that doctors have been unable to give him a ‘definitive answer’ on his prognosis, because ‘they just don’t know.’

Johnny – who rose to fame on X Factor Australia – has been happy to openly share his cancer fight since he underwent emergency surgery to remove a brain tumour in August.
But he left the Studio 10 hosts somewhat surprised during the chat when he said: ‘I’ve already got a will, I had that a long time ago.’
He’s feeling good, he insisted, but made it clear: ‘I am more [or] less taking it one day at a time – you just don’t know what is going to happen.’

‘With the prognosis, [doctors] can never really give you an absolute definitive answer because they just don’t know.’
He added: ‘You know, the chemo may work – it may have excellent results – but then again, it may not.’
Smiling and seeming to be in good spirits, Johnny said the ‘plan’ was for the chemotherapy to shrink the last of the tumour.

‘Hopefully, with the radiotherapy that I’ve already had, that will kill it all and I’ll be back here hosting with you guys!’ he said.
Co-host Sarah Harris was praised Johnny for his new outlook on life, saying: ‘Even being back on the panel, you seem just like a changed man.’
‘It’s like you’ve grown up 30 years!’ she gushed, to which he replied with a coy smile: ‘It was about time I think.’
