Following the sad news that Connie Johnson has passed away on Friday at the age of 40 from a prolonged battle with breast and liver cancer, celebrities flooded social media with emotional tributes for the late sister of Samuel Johnson.
Rebecca Gibney led the outpouring of messages, saying a simple: ‘Rest in peace Connie.
'And thank you for sharing your journey with us all.'
The star also shared a black and white picture of the late mother of two.

Radio stars Jonesy and Amanda also paid their respects, saying: 'Our hearts go out to you @samueljjohnson78 the fight doesn't stop here,' they wrote.

On Friday evening, Sam took to their Love Your Sister Facebook page to reveal the sad news.
'We lost Connie today. Or, as she asked me to say, she died of cancer today. It was so beautiful,' he wrote.
Continuing on, the 39-year-old said they had spent the day singing, reading messages of love and that she went 'so richly, and with such grace.'
Connie fought a long and very public battle with the disease - she was first diagnosed aged 11 - and she often had her brother by her side as he fought to raise funding for cancer research.
She was also a mother of two young boys, and was only yesterday awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia for her amazing work with her Love Your Sister charity.
