It all comes after Adam admitted he is “terrified of dying” after his dad, Joe, of terminal cancer.

The farmer said his dad was told he had four months left to live when he was diagnosed with the disease.

Opening up about the heartbreaking family moment last year, Adam shared: “Losing my dad was incredibly hard.

“He had terminal cancer and was given four months before he passed away. He was very unselfish about the diagnosis.”

He went on to say: “He just shared all his love with my mum and all his children, and just said he’d packed his bags, was ready to go and went quietly.

“I’m terrified of dying. I’m going to make a right old fuss.”

Adam concluded in his interview with the Mirror: “I’m not scared of how it might happen, it’s just I don’t want to leave the planet.

“There’s too much to see and do.”
