John Lynn: Woke Up - John Lynn was on top of the world. Film offers had started coming in and he was finally finding his feet on the London property ladder. John felt invincible - but his body had other ideas. After collapsing in his local café, John ended up in an Intensive Care Unit fighting a virus in his brain that had caused his heart to falter. Eventually his body began to heal but the experience had taken its toll. John was afraid of everything and It takes a year of wild experiences to put him back on top.
