Description

Having triumphed on Britain's Got Talent, Jon combines comedy, music and drama in a brand-new show exploring the true story of his television success while secretly fighting for his life. Accompany him backstage as he wrestles jokes and jeopardy to survive not only the competition but also to just... survive. Doctors and nurses, judges and jokers all become players in Jon's musical journey through jubilation, heartache, tumours and television. Reminding you that laughter can be the best medicine, but so can immunotherapy. As seen on Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway. 'Wonderful' (Simon Cowell).
