In October last year, Barry Du Bois announced some heartbreaking news: his cancer had returned after six years in remission.
"It seems that my cancer has come back, reasonably aggressively now I have what is regarded as multiple myeloma," he said at the time.
"We've got a cancer in my body that has created several tumours right through my body.
"[But] this is just another fight for me that I am quite comfortable I am going to win."
Five months on and with chemotherapy far behind him, Barry says he is on the home run.
"The chemo I had was horrific," he tells The Daily Telegraph.
"It was successful for me, I am on the scenic route now ... I am ready for any fight."
And the father-of-two is jumping right back into life, announcing his return to The Living Room this Friday, March 30.
"The Doctor has said I can go back to work so this Friday I am back on the couch with my incredible @livingroomtv family," he says on a social media post. "I am really hoping you can join us."
By "us" Barry not only means co-hosts Amanda Keller and Miguel Maestre, but Dr Chris Brown too.
The former Bondi Vet has spent the last few months co-hosting I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! Australia and will also make his return this week.
All eyes are on Barry, however, and his co-hosts as excited for his comeback as we are.
"We're just a little excited to have @baz_dubois back on board," Dr Chris says on Instagram.
"I'm so excited," Amanda adds. "I've been looking forward to this for weeks!"
