Australian actor and singer Johnny Ruffo has died aged 35, after a battle with brain cancer. 

Ruffo rose to fame on reality show X Factor Australia, before turning to acting in soap Home and Away. 

After his diagnosis in 2017, he contributed to efforts to raise funding and awareness about brain cancer in Australia. 

He died on Friday, surrounded by loved ones, his family said in a statement on his Instagram page. 

"He battled all the way to the end and fought as hard as he could," it read. 

"Such a beautiful soul with so much more to give." 

He would be remembered as a "talented, charming and sometimes cheeky boy", they added. 

Former X Factor host and Spice Girl Mel B was among those who sent condolences to his family.
