This Country actor Michael Sleggs has died aged 33 after just weeks after confirming he was suffering from terminal cancer.

The This Country podcast’s Twitter account shared the news, writing: "We are devastated! Our friend, the man the legend Michael Sleggs #Slugs passed away last night. RIP Michael. You are one in a million."

The news comes just weeks after he was reportedly diagnosed with terminal cancer, but he later posted online that he was actually cancer-free.

He's believed to have been undergoing palliative care for heart failure.

Michael previously wrote: "Hi friends, as a lot of you are probably aware I've spent a lot of time in and out of hospital over the past few months. 

"This last time it was decided i was reaching the end of options so they've sent me home on palliative care to live out the remainder of my days at home.

"No specific time limit has been given but deterioration has been fairly rapid.

"I've been sleeping a lot and narrowly dodged a coma by accidentally overdosing on morphine the other day. 

"Anyway as you can imagine this isn't the ideal way I wished things to go and my family are dealing with a lot of grief.

"Just wanted to say I love everyone reading this status so much, you have all been such amazing, kind, caring people who have all touched my life in so many unique and incredible ways. 

"Sorry if this status is too shmaltzy but not everyone has the chance to say goodbye so indulge me lol.'"
