Sharing a snap of an email from the NHS, he wrote to his 3.5 million followers: "This came through on Christmas Day.

"This is the worst illness I have ever had, debilitating headaches, muscle joint and even skin pain, dizziness, nausea, no appetite, incredibly chronic fatigue.

"My wife and I are fit non smokers and it's flattened us. I don't wish this on anyone."

"I was told that unless I heard anything, I should regard everything as normal and the cough would go," he wrote.

"I heard nothing and gradually my chest cleared, so I thought no more about it…

"Three months later I received a call saying the results of the X-ray had been misreported by one of the junior staff."

He added: "I spent a few hours alone thinking it could be the start of the end. This is because a Google search of 'shadows on lungs' does not make you believe the prognosis will be good."

Melanie was with John when he got the all-clear, and he continued: "'I put the phone down grateful for the life I had ahead of me."
