John Farnham has been sighted for the first time in over a year following his battle with oral cancer.

Farnham was snapped enjoying Christmas lunch with his family, at the head of the table with his wife Jillian, in a photo posted to Instagram by his son Rob.

Fans of the singer were quick to flood the comments of the post with well wishes and messages of support.

“Glad to see you all enjoying Xmas day all looking good and John sitting at the head of the table with his gorgeous wife and family,” one user said.

“Merry Christmas and thank you for sharing your family photo. Great to see your Dad looking great,” said another.

The “You’re the Voice” singer who underwent a 12-hour lifesaving surgery to remove a cancerous tumour from his mouth in August 2022 announced he was cancer free earlier in 2023.

In a statement released at the time Farnham said he was grateful to have survived the cancer scare claiming he was “the luckiest man alive”.

“It’s been a year since my first surgery and to be honest I’ve lost count as to how many other procedures there’s been since then,” he said.

“I’m sure someone’s kept track of them all – let’s just say, there’s been a few.

“But, I’m home now and I’m a very grateful and happy man. I’m sitting here in my living room lapping up the attention from my beautiful wife, Jill, my boys Rob and James and my mini Schnauzer, Edmund.”

It wasn’t always a clear road to recovery for Farnham who was hospitalised in March with a respiratory infection, his family releasing a statement at the time to update fans.

“We’re pleased to say that John made a full recovery from a recent chest infection in late March which required hospitalisation,” it read.

“He is now comfortable and continues to receive ongoing treatment and rehabilitation care.

“The family would like to reiterate their appreciation and deepest respect for all the medical staff that has attended to John over the past eight months and the many thousands of kind messages that (have) been received from across Australia and the world.”
