Barry is currently on leave from hosting duties on the hit show while he receives treatment for plasmacytoma myeloma, an aggressive form of cancer – the second time the TV star and builder has battled the disease – and was treated to a surprise visit from his colleague and much loved friend.
Appearing frail and emotional, Barry admitted to Amanda that it had been a tough few days for him.
I got a little infection, which happens in this situation. The chemo’s job is to take your white cells down to zero.” He revealed it’s been a struggle not seeing his twins Arabella and Bennett, especially as they started school this year.
Barry said: 'Since I found out about this - you were the one of the first people I told - I got really angry.'
Struggling to contain his emotion, the father-of-two added shakily: 'But this can't be my time... it can't be my time.
'I got myself physically fit, fitter than I've been for a long time, lost a few of those kilos that I didn't need and started this race as a favourite.'
Fighting back tears, Amanda said, “There’s so much love for you Baz, everywhere I go people say, ‘Give my love to Baz.’”
And her words couldn’t have been truer, with fans flooding social media with love and support for Barry.

Meanwhile, Barry himself shared a photo of himself and Amanda following her visit.
“Best medicine you can get is a visit from a beautiful friend, @amandarosekeller dropped in for a visit & we had a great chat,” he wrote.
Barry was diagnosed with plasmacytoma - a cancer of the immune system - in 2010, and underwent successful treatment.
However, in an emotional Living Room segment in October last year, he revealed his cancer had returned as multiple myeloma - a cancer of plasma cells.
'In the medical world, I am on the exit off the freeway, there is no doubt about that,' he told the panel.
He continued: 'I have always backed myself and I will back myself on this and I will have the support to win it. I have the support of my family and my beautiful friends around me.'
