Jonathan James Irwin was born on 18th November 1973. He grew up in Bitteswell, Leicestershire, on a small farm and attended Lutterworth Grammar School and Community College. He holds a degree in estate management from Birmingham City University and is of Irish descent.

Irwin worked at Christie & Co, as a business transfer specialist, and was promoted to associate director within three years. Later, he joined Colliers International. In 2004, Irwin was chosen along with Jasmine Harman from hundreds of applicants to host the Channel 4 show, A Place in the Sun – Home or Away. The show, which has been broadcast on More4, Discovery Real Time, and Discovery Travel & Living, has filmed over 200 episodes throughout the UK and other parts of the world, including Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. In 2022, after 18 years of hosting the show, Irwin claimed that he was removed from the programme due to his cancer diagnosis, leaving him in a low mood.

Irwin has also appeared on BBC property shows, including Escape to the Country and To Buy or Not to Buy, and has presented Escape to the Perfect Town, a spin-off to Escape to the Country. In 2011, Sky 1 broadcasted Irwin’s show, Dream Lives for Sale, in which he helped individuals relocate from the UK and buy a business. In late 2011, he began hosting The Renovation Game on Channel 4, which aired on weekday mornings.

Irwin has worked as a business and property consultant for the last ten years, advising clients on everything from small high street gift shops to multimillion-pound corporate hotel packages. He continues to run his own consultancy.

Irwin is a regular columnist for A Place in the Sun magazine and frequently presents his tips for purchasing property abroad at A Place in the Sun Live. He also hosts seminars and corporate events. Irwin played rugby for Lutterworth RFC and Rugby Lions RFC, but a back injury forced him to retire.

In September 2016, Irwin married Jessica Holmes, and the couple has three children. They relocated to Berkhamsted in Hertfordshire in 2018 and then to the Newcastle upon Tyne area. Irwin revealed on 13th November 2022 that he had terminal lung cancer, having been diagnosed in 2020. Irwin, who tries to remain optimistic, stated in an interview with Hello! that he doesn’t know how long he has left but sets small goals and intends to spend as much time as possible with his family.

Irwin revealed in an interview that he managed to break his nose by smashing through a patio door while filming in Spain.

“Most people, with a few notable examples, clean their houses within an inches of their lives and this couple were no different,”

We were filming out in Spain, and the proud owner was outside and before each house I go and make sure I know where everything is and I thought ‘I just need another poke at that garden’ just so I know what I’m talking about before they get in there.”

“So I ran purposely through the house, of course they’d shut the patio door, and I just went straight through it. And then I was on my knees suddenly, like ‘what is going on’ blood everywhere, the owner couldn’t believe it.

“I cut my shirt, cut my hand, broke my nose and pushed my tooth back.” Jonnie then joked: “That house now has open views to sea now so I think they owe me ten grand.”
