Jonny Labey, diagnosed with type 1 diabetes aged 15, hasn’t let it get in the way of him soaring to new heights as a dancer, actor and singer. Jonny made his TV acting debut as popular EastEnders character Paul Coker and he included type 1 in his character’s storyline.
Jonny’s greatest passion in life is dancing. He’s been a dancer since he was 5 years old and went on to graduate from the prestigious Doreen Bird College of Performance. Since then Jonny has gone on to win ITV’s Dance Dance Dance.
He’s also played the lead role as Scott Hastings in Baz Luhrmann’s West End hit musical Strictly Ballroom. In Jonny’s spare time he runs a blog Know Your Type, where he interviews people from all walks of life on their experiences and tips for managing the condition.

Brian has been living with type 1 diabetes since 2014 at the age of 33. However, despite the shock of being diagnosed Brian hasn’t let type 1 diabetes stop him from training for and running a marathon (just one year post-diagnosis!) and consequentially becoming a Blogger at www.type1bri.com.
“Diagnosis came as quite a shock at the age of 33, but on the whole it has made me a healthier, more confident person today. I never would have had the inspiration to train for and run the London Marathon if I didn’t have T1D driving me onward.”
Dr Neil Hill
