Daniel Wright, who appeared on US weight loss programme The Biggest Loser in the US, has passed away aged 30.
The season seven star died less than two years after he was first diagnosed with cancer in October 2017.
He died two days after his worried wife Rebecca told fans he was vomiting blood.
Confirming the devastating news on Facebook, co-star Courtney Crozier Respess wrote: "I am so so heartbroken to hear about Daniel Wright this morning.
“He has fought SO HARD during his battle with cancer & more.
“This man is one of the kindest people I have ever met & is a true difference maker in this world!
"His faith has never faded, even in the darkest of times. I am honored to have known him!!!"
Following a second appearance on the show, he met his wife, Rebecca.
Courtney continued: "Please keep him & his beautiful, amazing, and beyond strong wife Rebecca Wright in your prayers today as he is being called to heaven.
"Rebecca will need all of us to lift her up now & for the months & years to come."
During his time on The Biggest Loser, Daniel shed a sensational 4.2st in just four weeks.
He continued to work hard on his fitness long after he was eliminated, and over the course of his fitness journey went from 32 stone to 14.3 stone.
