    Home and Away actor Johnny Ruffo has died aged 35 following a battle with brain cancer.

    The star first rose to fame on X Factor Australia, before turning his talents to acting in the popular soap opera. Johnny was first diagnosed in 2017 and worked hard to raise funding and awareness surrounding brain cancer in Australia.

    The actor passed away on Friday (November 3) and was surrounded by loved ones. His family has since shared a heartfelt statement online.

    They penned on Instagram: "He battled all the way to the end and fought as hard as he could. Such a beautiful soul with so much more to give."

    They added how he would be remembered as a "talented, charming, and sometimes cheeky boy". Whilst other tributes have continued to pour in for him.

    Spice Girl Mel B and former X Factor judge sent condolences to his family. Another show judge and Australian singer Dannii Minogue also wrote on Instagram: "The cheekiest chap. His voice, smile, and dancing feet will be missed by so many."
